The C4 award-winning series, Derry Girls is set in Derry, Northern Ireland. The comedy series navigates a group of rebellious teenagers in school during the 1990s who get into all kinds of troubles and so much more.
It’s confirmed that Channel 4 renewed the Northern Irish Comedy series for Season 3. Filming began in June 2020 but it was halted due to the Covid-19 pandemic. As of now, there is no official announcement for the series premiere date. The Derry Girls Season 2 finale was dropped on April 9, 2019.
In a tweet, Bridgerton star Nicola Coughlan, who plays Clare Devlin confirmed that filming for Derry Girl Season 3 would begin this year.
She further added, “Can confirm Series 3 of Derry Girls is filming this year and I cannae bloody wait,” she said on Twitter. “Covid has pushed back filming several times which has been so shite, but honestly the storylines in this series are the best we’ve ever done so I can’t tell you how worth it the wait will have been.”
Derry Girls, the comedy series written by Lisa Mcgee was picked up by Netflix internationally. The series has two seasons so far. Season one was released on December 21, 2018, and season two was released on August 2, 2019. You can find the international version of the first season which is now available on Netflix. The second season is still yet to be added on Netflix.
The Derry Girls season 3 is also said to be the final series and possibly the most hilarious one so far, although it has not been confirmed whether it will be the final series but it is likely that the upcoming series will be the last.
When Is The Release Date For Derry Girls Season 3?
There is no official release date for the comedy series Derry Girls season 3 but will be released sometime in 2022.
However, filming has already begun in 2021 but currently, there is no official premiere set for Derry Girls season 3. According to Nicola Coughlin (via RTE), the show has been delayed because of the pandemic and the filming couldn’t be done in Derry due to precautionary measures. She also said, “We’re still waiting, because it’s integral to the show that we film in Derry.”
Meanwhile, viewers are eagerly waiting to watch the new season and Coughlan is ranting for the series to start filming it but Covid has delayed the filming.
The Cast Of Derry Girls Season 3
The main characters of the cast of Derry Girls will all return to the screen and play their roles respectively. That means all the five girls are returning. Other cast members reprising their roles are Saoirse-Monica Jackson as Erin, Coughlin as Clare, Louisa Harland as the spacey Orla, Jamie-Lee O’Donnell as Michelle and Dylan Llewellyn as James.
Siobhan McSweeney as Sister Michael, the headmistress is likely to return in the upcoming northern Irish comedy series Derry Girls Season 3.
Plot For Derry Girls Season 3
No details or information has been revealed for the plot of Derry Girls season 3. But we do expect to see more drama and teenage hardships.
Here’s a tweet by Nicola Coughlan that said, “the storylines in this series are the best we’ve ever done,” but did not reveal any specifics. She spoke to the Belfast Times about season 3’s production woes and discussed the storylines. “[W]e can’t do anything involving a crowd right now, so logistically, it’s tough. But I spoke to Lisa McGee recently and she talked me through the storylines. They’re so brilliant, which doesn’t surprise me — she’s just incredible — but it made me want to do it right now.”
Although the show is purely based on comedy and some drama the show tries to maintain a balance thus accepting the politically tense world where the girls live and by maintaining the tone in a buoyant manner.
Understandably, it is a sensitive topic especially when there is a conflict between those who wish for Northern Irelan to join the Republic of Ireland and some who still want to be a part of the UK, usually providing a background of unrest and violence for the character of Derry Girls who rather define their lives. Apart from the historical background, no further details have been revealed for the Derry Girls season 3 plot.
