If “Fleabag” Returns in 15 Years, Andrew Scott Says He’ll Be There

Andrew Scott in "Fleabag"

Phoebe Waller-Bridge, the BAFTA nominated writer of Fleabag, said in the past that she has no plans to make a third season of the successful series before she turns 50. It seems that if and when it will happen, she will have at least one of the show’s actors at her disposal.

Andrew Scott, who played a priest in the series, said to Digital Spy that he would be available to do Fleabag 3 in 15 years’ time. “Oh, I’ll probably be dead. But if I’m still alive, yeah. Listen, I’ll be there, whatever she wants me to do,” joked Scott.

The actor praised the show, saying he loved the fact the story was so well self-contained. He also backed the writer’s decision not to continue with the show despite its success. “I think sometimes when something is a success, you just want to elongate it for kind of the wrong reasons,” he added.

Scott has also said he is open to get back to the role of Moriarty in future seasons of Sherlock, although he claimed he doesn’t know any of plans for the future of the BBC show.

Moriarty has committed suicide in the second season of Sherlock, but it didn’t stop him from popping up in later seasons.
