After Season 2 dropped its finale on April 9, 2019, Channel 4 renewed the Northern Irish humor series for Derry Girl Season 3, and also the filming began in June 2020. However, the production was placed on hold due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
In October 2020, Saoirse-Monica Jackson, who plays the role of Erin Quinn, told Metro that the Derry Girl Season 3 filming was pushed back many times. Shooting from the hometown (Ireland) is important to keep the truth of this set.
“We’ve been pushed [filming] currently a couple of occasions, and I believe we are going to push again,” explained Monica Jackson. It’s really important to us that people maintain the authenticity of the series and that we don’t deliver any series that’s in any way a restricted edition,” she explained.
According to Cosmopolitan, Derry Girls Season 3’s star Nicola Coughlan said that the scripts are already written. She talked to the series’s creator Lisa McGee concerning the storylines, which can be”so brilliant.” Nicola Coughlan plays with Clare Devlin, one of Erin’s greatest friends in Derry Girls.
“We can’t do anything involving a crowd at this time, therefore logistically, it’s tough. But I spoke to Lisa McGee lately and she talked me through the storylines. They are so vibrant, she added. “That doesn’t surprise me she’s just incredible – but it made me want to get it done now,” said Coughlan.
As of January 2021, the filming isn’t resumed yet. Coughlan said the Derry Girls Season 3 celebrities are still awaiting the production to start and they”can’t do anything between a crowd at this time, so logistically, it is quite tough.”
“We were meant to begin filming around today,” she explained.
“It was angry since when this all started, I think your mind makes assumptions to make you feel better, such as it’ll only be a month, it’ll be fine,” she added.
It is also reported that Derry Girls Season 3 is the last and final season of this show. The girls are growing up and they will pass from Catholic school. In a meeting, Radio Times Lisa McGee told she’d like to cast Dara O Briain in Season 3.
“Oh god, it is always comedians with me. Dara O Briain, I adore. I don’t understand if he does some behaving,” said the founder.
It is anticipated that all the major cast from Season 2 will go back to perform their respective roles in Derry Girls Season 3. The stars are Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Nicola Coughlan, Jamie-Lee O’Donnell, Dylan Llewellyn, Tara Lynne O’Neill, Kathy Kiera Clarke, Siobhán McSweeney, Tommy Tiernan, and Ian McElhinney.
As the filming of Derry Girls Season 3 is set on hold to your Coronavirus pandemic, so as of yet we do not have any official launch date. Stay tuned!
