Fleabag fans were in for an extra special treat this weekend when the show's creator and title star Phoebe Waller-Bridge reunited with Andrew Scott aka the Hot Priest to dole out a few libations to those in line for her show in London's West End.
A video of the pair handing out "gin in a tin" to play patrons has taken the internet by storm because not only is this the Fleabag-Hot Priest reunion fans have been waiting for, but they even dressed the part. Scott may not have been in his beloved sermon-ready vestments, but that comfy sweatshirt/khakis combo is still very true to character, and fans will definitely recognize Waller-Bridge's high-waited jeans style from the show.

Even if things didn't end quite the way fans hoped for Fleabag and Hot Priest, well, at least there's this.
In addition to offering some catharsis to those who are still a bit broken up about Fleabag's latest finale, this reunion might be one of the rare occasions that Fleabag fans will get to see these two together again, given Waller-Bridge's reluctance to say yes to a third season of her now-Emmy-nominated comedy series.
Amazon has reportedly expressed an interest in having the series return for a third run, but Waller-Bridge has cast doubts on that prospect.
In March, she told The BBCof Fleabag Season 3, "I have thought about it and there isn't going to be one. This is it - this is the final curtain." However, she also didn't initially envision the show enjoying a second season and admitted to The Hollywood Reporter, "I may be surprised again."
Fleabag Seasons 1 and 2 are currently available to stream on Amazon.
