Bridgerton's Nicola Coughlan Confirms Derry Girls Season 3 Begins Filming This Year

Bridgerton star Nicola Coughlan has confirmed Season 3 of Derry Girls will begin filming this year, after suffering a delay due to the ongoing pandemic.

When Season 2 of the popular show ended back in 2019, it was immediately renewed for a third instalment. But sadly, like many of our favourite TV shows and films over the last 12 months, it suffered a delay.

"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."

And fans were so thrilled at the news, with one commenting: "I would just like to confirm that I'm very excited by this news."

While another said: "Omg omg omg I'm shaking I'm so excited. Can. Not. Wait. to see Clare again. You have always been my favourite. Then I saw you in #bridgertonnetflix and I thought all my Christmas's had came at once. Absolutely love you."

Meanwhile another person called it the "best news this year" and one added: "Fantastic news! I've lost count of how many times I've rewatched Derry Girls in lockdown."

Last month, Nicola gave fans a glimpse into what the upcoming season might have in store.

Speaking to her.ie, the 34-year-old explained: "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. "

The hilarious sitcom follows Erin (Saoirse-Monica Jackson), her cousin Orla (Louisa Harland), their friends Michelle (Jamie-Lee O'Donnell) and Clare (Nicola Coughlan), and Michelle's English cousin James (Dylan Llewellyn) as they navigate their teenage years during the end of the early 1990s 'Troubles' in Derry.

And a new season might not be the only Derry Girls on the horizon, either. Last summer, creator Lisa McGee revealed they could be starting work on a movie pretty soon, too.
