The plot is known only to a few people, but it sound promising. Nicola Coughlan, tweeted saying that the story lines are “the best we’ve ever done”.
We could also see how the end of hostilities affects the group. Lisa McGee disclosed there may be romance for James and Erin, who appeared jealous of his potential love interest while the conclusion of season two.
McGee told the Radio Times “It might be interesting to explore that a bit more, because they’re great together.” She added: “I think the potential is there. It’s something I’m interested in seeing. I might toy with it next season, I’m not sure.”
The show trickily balances the politically tense world in which the girl gang lives while keeping the tone mostly cheery. The troubles, the dissension between those who wished to remain with the UK and those desiring for Northern Ireland to associate with the Republic of Ireland, normally provide a background buzz of violence for the characters of Derry Girls rather than bounding their lives.
