Fleabag’s Hot Priest Needs to Guest Star on One Day at a Time!
One Day at a Time show creator, Gloria Calderon Kellett meets Fleabag’s Hot Priest. For those of you who haven’t watched BBC’s Fleabag, the second season brings in a new character by the name of Hot Priest. We never get to know his real name but we do know the actor’s real name. It’s Andrew Scott. And yes, he was in Sherlock. He played the villain Moriarity. Recently, the British actor met One Day at a Time’s show runner and one of the cast members Isabella Gomez.
As someone who has seen both One Day at a Time and Fleabag, my inner fangirl is screaming. That same fangirl is hoping that the two are in talks for Andrew Scott to appear in Kellett’s show One day at a Time (ODAAT).
One Day at a Time | From Cancellation to Pop TV
ODAAT was a Netflix original series with three seasons still available on the streaming service. Though, in order for it to get season 4 renewal, Netflix wanted it to achieve a certain number of viewership. That led to a popular social media trend “#SaveODAAT” where people urged Netflix to renew it. The show was also popular for highlighting issues such as depression, PTSD, veterans’ struggles, lone parenthood, discrimination Latina families and the LGBTQ face.
Even though the social media campaign was very popular, Netflix did not renew it. It ended up cancelling it. After much fighting thanks to the show runner Gloria Calderon Kellett, the cast and other industry friends, One day at a Time found its home on Pop TV.
One day at a Time even got a release date for its upcoming season. Season 4 is going to come in March 2020.
Hot Priest (Andrew Scott) To Make an Appearance in One Day At a Time Season 4?
The Instagram post does not reveal where Andrew Scott and the ODAAT’s showrunner met. It seems to be some event. But it could lead to Fleabag’s hot priest making an appearance in the upcoming 4th season.
Hot Priest was a really popular addition in BBC’s Fleabag. The British show starring Phoebe-Waller Bridge has unfortunately ended with a bittersweet ending. Although it got a fitting finale and won many awards, I still dearly miss the cast.
So, I for one, really wish Andrew Scott guest stars on ODAAT.
