Nicola Coughlin, known for her role as Penny Featherington in the period drama “Bridgerton,” is also one of the stars of Channel 4’s Derry Girls. The show has two seasons available on Netflix now, but according to some recent tweets from Coughlin, this third season won’t be arriving until 2019.
Derry Girls is a British comedy-drama series set in the Northern Ireland city of Derry. It follows the lives of five schoolgirls, who are friends Erin, Clare, and Michelle while her English cousin James meets up with them at Catholic School. The show won various screenwriting awards before achieving even more acclaim as TikTok loops, gaining millions of views on social media platform YouTube. Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming season.
Derry Girls Season 3 Release Date Details:
There is no official premiere date set for season 3 of the Irish comedy series Derry Girls. The show has been on hold since the COVID-19 pandemic prevented filming in Derry.
“We’re still waiting because it’s integral to the show that we film in Derry,” she said. As anxious as viewers are to watch a new season, Coughlin is champing at the bit – despite concerns of an outbreak and delays delaying filming several times.
Derry Girls Season 3 Cast Details:
The British magazine Cosmopolitan is reporting that all the girls from seasons 1 and 2 will be back for series 3.
- Saoirse-Monica Jackson as Erin.
- Coughlin as Clare.
- Louisa Harland as the spacey Orla.
- Jamie-Lee O’Donnell as Michelle.
- Dylan Llewellyn as James.
- Sister Michael, played by Siobhán McSweeney.
The creator of Derry Girls is hopeful that comedian and TV presenter Dara Ó Briain will make an appearance in the third season of the popular show. While expressing his appreciation for the Irish comedy on social media, Ó Briain noted his admiration of Saoirse-Monica Jackson’s performance.
He has expressed love for Derry Girls on social media and is a frequent guest on The Big Fat Quiz, which makes him be a natural choice for an appearance in the show. Other potential guest stars or cameo appearances are not known at this point.
Derry Girls Season 3 Plot Synopsis:
In a new story, the actress teased that “the storylines in this series are the best we’ve ever done,” but did not reveal any specifics. She discussed season 3’s production woes and addressed one of its major challenges.
“We can’t do anything involving a crowd right now,” she told the Belfast Times, “so logistically it’s really tough.” But I had the chance to speak with Lisa McGee recently and she gave me a rundown of what to expect in Derry Girls season 3. It sounds brilliant, which doesn’t surprise me — she’s always been incredible. But it made me want to be on set right now.”
The show is able to squeeze humor out of its dark world, maintaining a lighthearted tone. Historically set in Northern Ireland during the Troubles, Derry Girls usually maintains an air of violence for most of its episodes. However, outside that historical and social backdrop, one does not know about season 3’s plot.
