In between scooping up almost every award available for her smash hit show Fleabag, it appears that Phoebe Waller-Bridge still found some time to film a new TV series – and it sounds just brilliant. The TV series, which also stars Unbelievable actress Merritt Wever and Domhnall Gleeson, follows a woman who revisits the past with her college boyfriend after the pair made a pact 17 years earlier to go travelling together if they both text each other the word "run".
Merritt Wever and Domhnall Gleeson play Ruby and Billy
Phoebe will star as Laurel, a woman who Ruby and Billy meet on their adventure, and the series has been written and produced by Fleabag and Killing Eve director, and Phoebe's long-time collaborator, Vicky Jones. We're delighted to have more of Phoebe on our screens, particularly as the star has confirmed that she won't be making a third season of Fleabag. Chatting at the Golden Globes, she told Deadline: "I haven’t changed my mind about season three. It feels more and more about being the right decision. [Awards shows] are just beautiful goodbyes. But there’s been so many goodbyes every time."
