Just as the popularity of BBC Three comedy Fleabag hits its peak, one of its stars has dashed hopes of fans that there will be more to come.
Speaking on BBC Breakfast, Sian Clifford announced that when the current series finishes next week, then that will be last we will see of it.
Sian, who plays Fleabag’s uptight sister, said: “There will not be a third series. This is it.”
While this will be upsetting news for the legions of fans that show has gathered, Sian said that the final episode will offer a “beautiful, perfect ending”.
This is the final nail in the coffin for the comedy, which had been teased to end by its creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
Fans had hoped that her insistence on Monday that the final instalment of series three would be “the final curtain,” was just a throwaway comment but Sian’s follow-up seems to have confirmed this to be the case.
Speaking previously about a third series, Waller-Bridge said: “I have thought about it and there isn’t going to be one.”
Sian has revealed that she will do her best to change her mind though, saying she is “desperate to play Claire again,” but this could be a long shot.
The second series has aired on BBC One, which has seen its fanbase grow rapidly as viewers enjoy the relationship between the title character and a charismatic priest, played by Andrew Scott.
While there has been no hint as to how it will all end, Sian did reveal: “People will accept this is the end when they see it”.
