Nicola Coughlan has revealed on her Twitter account that next series of Derry Girls will finally be filmed this year. A third series of the Northern Irish comedy was confirmed by Channel 4 in Spring 2019, but like many other film and TV projects, filming had been delayed by COVID-19.
The actor who plays Claire Devlin, the wee lesbian, on the series tweeted: “Can confirm Series 3 of Derry Girls is filming this year and I cannae bloody wait
“Covid has pushed back filming several times which has been so shite, 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.”
Lisa McGee, who created Derry Girls confirmed the announcement with a retweet, we cannae bloody wait either!
