If you are as in love with Derry Girls as we are, we imagine you were just as disappointed as us that the filming of the show’s third season was pushed back last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
On the bright side however, we might finally have an update on what’s happening about season 3 of Derry Girls! Here is everything we know so far about the third season of the hit show.
What Can We Expect From Season 3?

Nichola Coughlan has given us high hopes for the season by expressing her excitement for the filming of season 3. Nichola took to Twitter to announce her love for the storylines writing “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.”
That sure sounds promising! The series is expected to be set just after the signing of the Good Friday Agreement in 1998, meaning the girls will be a bit older in this series, around 17 years old.
Lisa McGee gave us an insight in to the girls behaviour throughout season 3. Speaking to The Belfast Telegraph she said that the girls “will be forced to develop somewhat this show but they are still ejitts they never the less get in to a great deal of trouble, and embarrass themselves and do all of those things you would expect the Derry Ladies to perform, but they don’t need to manage some big items this moment. It is still amusing. The most crucial issue is that it brings joy to individuals. I would like to make folks laugh.”
Who Will Be Cast In Season 3?
You can expect the same (brilliant) main cast for season 3. yay! Saoirse-Monica Jackson will be back playing Erin Quinn, Nicola Coughlan will play Clare Devlin, Jamie-Lee O’Donnell as Michelle Mallon, Louisa Harland as Orla McCool and Dylan Llewellyn as James Maguire. As well as the character’s respective family members.

The filming for the third season was initially planned to start in June 2020 but that inevitably didn’t go ahead. Unfortunately we don’t have a release date just yet BUT filming for season 3 of Derry Girls is currently underway, so we can officially expect to have the girls back in our lives sometime in 2020!!
Do We Have A Trailer Yet?
Not just yet as filming is still yet to commence!
But as soon as there is one we will be sure to share it with you here on Missy.ie!
Season 3 Will Be The Last
Yep, v sad news! But season 3 of Derry Girls will be the last. We are devo, but we’d rather the girls go out on a high with 3 great seasons than string in on forever. The cast is getting older – some of them are already in their thirties!! And they’re super busy with other projects. We’ll just have to savour season 3 when it’s released!
