Orla McCool star Louisa Clare Harland has finally broken the silence on Derry Girls Season 3 while teasing a promising production update. Derry Girls, created by Lisa McGee, revolves around Erin, her cousin Orla, and their friends. However, they struggle to navigate their teen years towards the end of The Trouble in Derry.
Meanwhile, all of them are attending the same catholic girls’ secondary school during the havoc. Unfortunately, however, the third run suffered from several delays. But now, let’s see when Louisa and others will return to resume filming on the third season.
Derry Girls Season 3: Has Production Begun Yet?
Recently, Louisa confirmed that although she isn’t returning to production on the third run, yet she would soon be back to work. They initially planned to begin filming in 2020. But unfortunately, due to the global health crisis, the series faced several delays. Further, back in May 2020, the series star Nicola Coughlan teased they were supposed to begin filming around now.
Fortunately, Louisa assured her fans that soon, the entire cast would return to film the third chapter. Even she teased that there’s a high possibility that they would quickly wrap up the production within this year if everything goes well as per Lisa’s plan. Hence, we can expect production would commence soon this fall. Moreover, the past two seasons consist of a total of six episodes, thus, we can expect that the current season would also consist of six episodes.
Derry Girls Season 3: What Will Happen Next?
Howbeit the creator hasn’t revealed how things would move in the next season. Yet, Louisa teased that it would entirely be hilarious. Speaking with Digital Spy, Louisa said she has no clue about the third run. However, she received a text from the creator, Lisa saying she has just written an utterly hilarious story arc for Orla.
Though Louisa didn’t reveal many details, she said that Lisa is wise in respect to stay schtum. But, Louisa teased that she’s excited to go back to works. Hence Louisa doesn’t know anything about season 3. But she promised it would be classic as per Lisa’s last seasons.
Derry Girls Season 3: When Will It Return?
Given that the production is yet to begin, it’s pretty hard to guess when Derry Girls would return with season 3. However, deeming the first two seasons’ release pattern, we can expect that the third season would return early next year. But if the production received further delays, then the chances are high that it would air sometime in fall 2022 only on Channel 4.
Derry Girls Season 3: Will It Be The Last Season?
As of now, the network hasn’t revealed how long this series will go. But while speaking to Louisa, she teased it could theoretically run as long as Lisa wants. However, it follows real events’ political timeline. Thus, there would be some kind of natural ending. But she mocked that “who knows,” perhaps it could be a long-running show. So, stay tuned with us for more updates on Derry Girls Season 3.
