Nicola Coughlan has shared the good news that Derry Girls will definitely be back filming this year. So many of our favourite shows have been pushed back and delayed because of Covid restrictions over the last twelve months, so this is a welcome bit of good news.
Revealing the news on Twitter, Nicola, who plays the role of Clare Devlin on the show, said; “Can confirm Series 3 of Derry Girls is filming this year and I cannae bloody wait.”
Continuing she said; “Covid has pushed back filming several times which has been so sh*te, but honestly the storylines in this series are the best we’ve ever done so I can’t tell you how worth it the wait will have been.”
Late last year the actor shared that although some shows in the US, like Stranger Things, are back filming, Derry Girls couldn’t just yet. Speaking with the Belfast Telegraph she said this is because; “it’s integral to the show that we film in Derry.”
“And we can’t do anything involving a crowd right now, so logistically, it’s really tough.”
Despite this, Nicola has been in touch with show creator Lisa McGee who has shared the plot for the next season with her; “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. But we also want to do the best version of the show we can.”
Although she didn’t share a date we can only hope we’ll be able to watch the new season late 2021/early 2022. We’ll keep you posted!
