That says series star Nicola Coughlan (Clare Devlin), who shared the news on Saturday (February 20) via her Twitter account.
“Can confirm the third series of Derry Girls is being shot this year and I can’t wait,” she wrote alongside a gif from the Northern Ireland-based comedy series.
“Covid pushed back filming several times which was so shitty, but honestly the storylines on this series are the best we’ve ever done. So I can’t tell you how much it was worth the wait,” she added .

The second season of Derry Girls ended in April 2019 with a third installment announced that same month. Filming for the third series should begin in spring 2020 before the coronavirus crisis caused delays.

Coughlan stars alongside Saoirse-Monica Jackson (who portrays Erin Quinn), Louisa Harland (Orla McCool), Jamie-Lee O’Donnell (Michelle Mallon) and Dylan Llewellyn (Martin “Jono” Johnson) on the series that follows a group of young people who grew up in Derry during the troubles of the 1990s.
Last March, Derry Girls star Tommy Tiernan (Da Gerry) hinted that the show’s third season might be the last. “This is [the] last series i think. As far as I know, this is the very last series, ”he said on Jason Manford’s Absolute Radio Show.
However, according to McGee, a spin-off film should be in the works. “For a while I didn’t know if it would work, but now a vague idea is starting to form in my head,” said McGee. “So I’ll think about it a little more after the third series.”
