Fleabag fans far and wide will soon be able to experience creator Phoebe-Waller Bridge’s hit dramedy series in book form.
UK publishing house Hodder & Stoughton have announced that a Fleabag book is officially on the way.
Titled Fleabag: The Scriptures, the book isn’t a new chapter of the series. Instead, the book is set to feature complete filming scripts for the series’ two seasons as well as never-before-seen stage directions.
Both, of course, are written by series creator, writer and star Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
“You love Fleabag. We love Fleabag. Everyone loves Fleabag. Announcing publication of Fleabag: Scriptures. The entire filming scripts including new writing from Phoebe Waller-Bridge and never-before-seen stage directions. Coming 5th November,” tweeted the publishing house’s official account on August 7.
The publishing house paired the exciting announcement with a title card for the book, fittingly featuring silhouettes of a guinea pig and a fox.

There’s no word yet on what new writing Waller-Bridge may be cooking up for the book, but the Emmy nominee did reveal during a recent interview with Jimmy Fallon that she’s looking forward to fans being able to read the stage directions.
“The stage directions — they tell a lot of the story, so it’s going to be nice for people to read those,” said Waller-Bridge.
We’ll be looking forward to picking up our copy in just a few months!
Fleabag: Scriptures will be available for purchase beginning Tuesday, November 5.
