One of the most successful Amazon Prime series of all time will soon find its way into the ARD media library. To do this, the public broadcaster uses a trick that affects the broadcast. As soon as “Fleabag “was shown on linear television, the series can be included in the media library. The special interest broadcaster One broadcasts on Maundy Thursday, the April 1st, at 9:45 p.m. the first two episodes of the first season. But it continues at an inopportune time.
“Fleabag” – focus on media library
If it were up to the fans, the critics and certainly also to Amazon, a third season would have been shot long ago, but the clever mind of Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who wrote the brilliant series, has no interest in a sequel. “I haven’t changed my mind. It feels more and more right,” she told Deadline in January 2020. Even though she did two Golden Globes and three Emmys (a total of six Emmys went to the series). The fans can still beg longingly. Without Waller-Bridge there will be nothing with a third season.
In return, viewers who do not have an Amazon Prime account can now also enjoy the series. After the season kick-off on April 1st, things will continue a day later – but by 4:50 a.m. in the morning. The broadcaster is not aiming to lure as many viewers as possible in front of the television, but is fully committed on the access numbers in the ARD media library.
“Fleabag” is about the protagonist played by Waller-Bridge, who carries very heavy emotional baggage with her. She doesn’t accept help, she ridicules everything and everyone and thus destroys herself. For Waller-Bridge the series not only meant a rain of prizes, but also the ticket to the big blockbuster cinema. So she revised the script of “James Bond 007: No Time to Die” to add her clever joke. Since “Solo: A Star Wars Story” she has also been part of the epic stories from a galaxy far, far away.
