Orla McCool gives a very exciting update on Derry Girls Season 3

“I’m laughing even just thinking about them…”

It has been over TWO YEARS since the end of the second season of Derry Girls, and it looks like we’ll be getting the third season some time in 2022, once production officially starts.

Our pals over at JOE chatted to Orla McCool herself, real name Louisa Harland, about her new comedy-horror movie Boys From County Hell.

They asked how the third season is going, and Harland told them the following:

“It’s not going. But it will be¬†going! I’m not currently Orla McCool but I will be very, very soon, and hopefully [the third season] will be out soon.”

JOE mentioned that Nicola Coughlan has recently tweeted that the stories for the new season are the best in the show so far. Does Harland agree?

Harland said: “Yeah, we haven’t actually had any scripts, but we’ve heard little nuggets. And I’m laughing even just thinking about them, but they’re good at not giving us the scripts, because we get too excited and stuff.

“But just politically, in the timeline, what was going on at that time, I think covering those topics in the third series, I think is going to be quite moving. Yeah, it is really, really exciting.”
