After Season 2 dropped its finale on April 9, 2019, Channel 4 revived the Northern Irish humor series for Derry Girl Season 3, and the filming began in June 2020. However, the production was placed on hold as a result of 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 accuracy of the set.
“We’ve been pushed [filming] currently a few times, and I think we are going to push again,” said Monica Jackson. It’s very important to us that people keep the credibility of the series and that we don’t provide any series that is in any manner a restricted edition,” she explained.
According to Cosmopolitan, Derry Girls Season 3’s star Nicola Coughlan said that the scripts are already written. She recently talked to the show’s founder Lisa McGee about the storylines, which are”so brilliant.” Nicola Coughlan plays Clare Devlin, one of Erin’s greatest friends in Derry Girls.
“We can’t do anything involving a crowd right now, therefore logistically, it’s tough. However, 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 amazing – but it made me want to get it done right now,” said Coughlan.
As of January 2021, the filming is not resumed yet. Coughlan reported the Derry Girls Season 3 celebrities are still awaiting the production to start and they”can not do anything between a crowd at this time, so logistically, it is tough.”
“We were supposed to start filming around today,” she said.
“It was angry since when this all began, I think your mind makes assumptions to make you feel better like it will only be a month, it will be fine,” she added.
It is also noted that Derry Girls Season 3 is the final and final season of the series. The girls are growing up and they’ll pass out from Catholic school. In an interview, Radio Times Lisa McGee told she’d love to throw Dara O Briain in Season 3.
“Oh god, it is always comedians with me. Dara O Briain, I adore. I don’t know if he does any acting,” said the creator.
It is anticipated that the major cast from Season 2 will go back to play their various roles in Derry Girls Season 3. The celebrities are Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Nicola Coughlan, Jamie-Lee O’Donnell, Dylan Llewellyn, Tara Lynne O’Neill, Kathy Kiera Clarke, Siobhán McSweeney, Tommy Tiernan, along with Ian McElhinney.
As the filming of Derry Girls Season 3 is put on hold for your Coronavirus pandemic, in order yet we don’t have any official release date. Stay tuned!
