Season three of Derry Girls has gone down a treat with fans. Everyone has been loving all of the surprise guest stars, hilarious story lines, and iconic 90s references. So it’s hard to believe this season could have been any better, but creator Lisa McGee revealed the brilliant storyline which was dropped from this season, proving that even their cut storylines can make us laugh.
Taking to Twitter the writer explained; “In the run up to the end of Derry Girls I want to share some stories that didn’t make it.”
The episode sounded brilliant and involved the girls taking part in a school play which Erin wrote.
“Number 1: Erin writes a reimagined version of Romeo and Juliet which she thinks is mind blowingly original (Juliet is a catholic and Romeo is a Protestant)”
“The casting is decided by a class vote. Orla bags the role of Romeo and Erin is horrified when the role of Juliet goes to ….Drum roll please Sister….Jenny Joyce”
So far this is the only scrapped story Lisa has shared but more could be coming as she said; “I’d love to share all the scenes at some point In the future when I have time if the fans want to see them”
Unfortunately it seems a few storylines never saw light and considering this is the final season, they probably never will. But while audiences never got to see this masterpiece, they will be getting to see another as Jamie-Lee O’Donnell, who plays Michelle, is writing her own TV show script.
Telling the Sunday Life, “I do write scripts. I’ve got a few projects happening at the moment. There’s no deadline for them or anything — it’s leisurely at the moment — but, yes, I’m writing away.”
While she kept quiet on the details, the actress did share what her writing process is like, “My writing doesn’t have any rhyme or reason at the moment: it’s just writing stuff down as good ideas come to me alongside work or during breaks.”
But we will be getting more details on her secret writing project soon. As she explains, “I’m going to continue my writing — I’ve a couple of goals there and I’m sure people will hear about them at some point — just keep being creative, keep expressing what I can where I can.”
