Derry Girls Season 3 - All We Should Know So Far!

Penelope’s other programme is well-known among Bridgerton enthusiasts. Penelope Featherington is played by Nicola Coughlin, who is also one of the stars of Channel 4’s Derry Girls. The award-winning programme now has two seasons (or series, as they call them across the Atlantic), but the third series has been postponed owing to the COVID-19 epidemic. Thankfully, Coughlin revealed on Twitter that filming for the third season of Derry Girls will commence this year.

Derry Girls is set at the conclusion of the Troubles in Northern Ireland’s city of Derry. Friends Erin, Clare, and Michelle, as well as Erin’s cousin Orla and Michelle’s English cousin James, form the title girls’ clique in Catholic school. The five “girls” must deal with fame, religion, first love, and a lot of shame. The show has received several screenplay and comedy accolades, as well as multiple BAFTA nominations. Almost as essential, TikTok noises have been created using snippets from the episode.

When will the third season of Derry Girls air?

Despite the fact that season 3 of Derry Girls will begin production in 2021, no official debut date has been determined.

The show has been put on hold, according to RTE, since the COVID-19 epidemic has precluded filming in Derry. “We’re still waiting,” she explained, “since it’s crucial to the programme that we film in Derry.” As excited as fans are for a new season, Coughlin is itching to get started filming it. Despite the fact that the epidemic has pushed back filming “many times,” she remarked on Twitter that she “Cannae bloody wait.”

Not one, but two of Coughlin’s programmes are awaiting their launch dates. Bridgerton season 2 will begin filming this spring, according to Netflix. The Viscount Who Loved Me, Julia Quinn’s second novel, will most likely be the basis for the second season. The fourth book in the Bridgerton series, Romancing Mr Bridgerton, stars Coughlin’s character, Penelope Featherington.

What is the plot of Derry Girls season 3?

In her Twitter thread, Coughlin said that “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 really 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.”

The show maintains a tricky balance of acknowledging the politically tense world in which the girls live while keeping the tone mostly lighthearted. The Troubles, the conflict between those wishing for Northern Ireland to join the Republic of Ireland and those who wanted to remain with the UK, usually provide a background hum of violence for the character of Derry Girls rather than defining their lives. Outside of that historical backdrop, not much is known about the season 3 plot.
