Northern Irish comedy-drama, Derry Girls have been renewed for its third season long back. Although many series are resuming their filming or about to continue, but the fans have to wait a little more to relive the entire madness with the girls in Derry Girls Season 3. Moreover, Tommy Tiernan, who plays Erin’s dad Gerry, hinted that perhaps it could be the show’s last season. Really! Yet, the writer and creator Lisa McGee has some other plans to surprise their fans. Well, until then, let’s explore how things would bring Erin and James together.
Derry Girls, created by Lisa McGee, is a comedy sitcom on Channel 4. The series set in the 1990s Derry, Northern Ireland. It follows a group of friends who attend a Catholic girls’ secondary school aftermath of Troubles in Derry. We see Erin Quinn (Saoirse-Monica Jackson), a 16-year-old who’s passionate and determined. But sometimes cocky and judgmental. However, her sarcastic nature and dark sense of humor often bring her into trouble.
Derry Girls Season 3: Still Discussing On Production
Earlier, Derry Girls Season 3 was scheduled to begin filming in June. However, due to the ongoing crisis, the production has put on hold. Ian Katz, Chanel 4’s Director of Programmes shared his frustration regarding the whole situation. Ian revealed that fans have to wait a little longer, as they’re not considering beginning filming in current time. However, it’s quite frustrating to put a hold on the channel’s favorite comedy-drama. Still, it’s worth doing as it’s hardest to maintain social distancing in such an intimidating show. Ian added: “It’s the most close-up, intimate production.”

But, Lisa continued: “I’d like to do it.” She believed that her team members are also preparing for a long-term plan.
