Andrew Scott Joins ‘Fleabag’ for Season Two

Andrew Scott is set to join the cast of hit BBC Three and Amazon Studios comedy “Fleabag.” The BAFTA-winning “Sherlock” actor will join the second season of Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s show, which has begun filming in the U.K. and will debut on BBC Three and Amazon Prime Video in 2019.

Scott joins the returning ensemble from Season 1, which includes breakout star and creator Waller-Bridge, multi-BAFTA-winner Olivia Colman, Sian Clifford, Bill Paterson, Brett Gelman, Jenny Rainsford and Hugh Skinner. Waller-Bridge won a BAFTA Television Award for best female performance in a comedy program for the show’s first season in 2016, one of six nominations the show received, beating out Colman, who was nominated in the same category.

“I can’t believe they let me do this again,” Waller-Bridge said. “I’m so happy to be back with the incredible ‘Fleabag’ team, and I’m as surprised as anyone about where this series has taken us….Thank God for Andrew Scott.”

Scott won a best supporting actor BAFTA in 2012 for his role as “Sherlock” villain Jim Moriarty, opposite Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman.
