Fleabag fans rejoice: the show's stars Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Fiona Shaw will have an on-screen reunion in an upcoming comedy alongside Deadpool's Ryan Reynolds.

Shaw appeared as Fleabag's lotion-rubbing therapist in season two of the beloved series, forever reminding us how crucial it is to moisturise our elbows, while she's also known for playing the aloof, no-nonsense Carolyn Martens on Killing Eve.

The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Waller-Bridge and Shaw are set to star in the untitled project from The Office's John Krasinski.

Plot details about the fantasy-comedy haven't been disclosed, but the story is based on an original idea of Krasinski's about a child's journey to rediscover their imagination.

Better not to get too excited just yet as the film will only begin shooting in summer 2022, before being released in November 2023.

In the summer of 2023, fans will also be able to catch Waller-Bridge in the highly-anticipated new chapter in the Indiana Jones saga.

As for Shaw, she will next star on Disney+ Star Wars show Andor, focusing on the Rogue One character played by Diego Luna, Cassian Andor.

The 12-episode season also features Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Denise Gough, Kyle Soller and Genevieve O'Reilly and will begin streaming in 2022.
