Lisa McGee has created Derry Girls, an Irish comedy sitcom. The show airs on Channel 4 but is also available on Netflix. Hat Trick Productions in the UK produced the show. It’s about the lives of four teenage girls living in Derry, Northern Ireland.
Its debut was in 2018. The sequel followed a year later in 2019. The show was renewed for a third year, but the coronavirus epidemic has kept it off the air. We have all information regarding Derry Girls Season 3. This includes its plot, release dates, cast, trailer, and more.
Derry Girls Season 3 Release date
The 2018 series was close to releasing its third season in 2020. Two years had passed since the show’s announcement in 2019. Production has been held up by delays caused by the coronavirus outbreak. The show’s production has been delayed by the coronavirus pandemic.
Nicola Coughlan (a star on the show) has confirmed that filming for the show will resume this year. We might see season 3 in 2022 if everything goes as planned.
Also, we know that the first and second seasons of Derry Girls are both available for streaming on Netflix. Season 3 will be also available on Netflix, as soon as it is released in the UK.
Derry Girls Season 3 Cast: Who can be in it?
Most of the original cast will likely return to season 3. Saoirse Jackson is expected to reprise her role as Erin, the sarcastically hilarious character. Jamie Lee O’Donnell, Nicola Coughlan (‘Bridgerton’), will also be reprising their roles of Erin’s best friends, Clare and Michelle. Louisa Harland (playing James Maguire) and Dylan Llewellyn (playing Orla McCool) will take on the roles. Siobhan McCSweeney, who plays Sister Michael the strict headmistress, is also confirmed for season 3.
Sources claim that most of the supporting cast from the previous season, as well as the main characters’ families, will be making their return to our television screens. Lisa McGee (the show’s creator) expressed her interest to have Dara O Briain, an Irish comedian play a cameo role in the upcoming season. Dara is known for his hilarious stand-ups and has also praised ‘Derry Girls’ on social media. However, this has not been confirmed.
Plot For Derry Girls Season 3
For Derry Girls season 3, no information or details have been made public. But, we can expect more drama and hardships for teenage girls.
Here’s Nicola Coughlan, tweeting “the storylines are in this series the best we’ve done”, without giving details. She spoke to Belfast Times about season 3’s production woes and discussed the storylines. “[W]e don’t have the resources to produce anything that involves crowds right now. It’s very logistically difficult. Lisa McGee talked me through the storylines when I spoke with her recently. They are brilliant, which does not surprise me — she is simply amazing — but it made it so much more appealing to me that I want to do it now.
The show is purely comedy-drama and does not include any drama. It tries to be balanced by accepting the politically charged world of the girls and keeping the tone buoyant. It is an emotive topic. There is often conflict between people who would like Northern Ireland to join the Republic of Ireland. Others who still want to be part of the UK. The background of violence and unrest is what Derry Girls live with. There are not many details available about the Derry Girls Season 3 plot other than the historical background.
