Nicola Coughlan Will Be Swapping Corsets For School Uniforms When She Returns To Derry Girls

*Slight* change of scenery...

Nicola Coughlan is very busy at the moment with her Netflix hit Bridgerton filming season two and of course, Derry Girls which is about to start filming it’s final season.

As Derry Girls was said to be filming this month, and Bridgerton is not yet finished filming, one fan asked Nicola on Twitter when she will be returning to Ireland to film Derry Girls.

The actress reassured fans that she will not be missing from the upcoming series and will be back as soon as she’s finished with her newsletters as Penelope Featherington.

She explained the rest of the cast will film any scenes she’s not in while she’s away.

She said, “So Derry Girls will start filming anything I’m not in first while I finish filming Bridgerton, the moment I wrap I’ll take of the corset and get back into the green uniform.”

Very quick turn around for two very different character’s but there’s no better woman for the job.

We can’t wait to see Nicola reprise her role in both series’ for all the goss in Bridgerton and for the lol’s in Derry Girls, as well as just seeing the Derry Girls cast back together after their individual successes.


Earlier this week fans of Derry Girls received some bad news, Lisa McGee, the creator of the show revealed that season three is finally on the way, as filming is due to start.

But in announcing a season 3, the writer also revealed that it would be the last.

Lisa explained that “it was always the plan to say goodbye” after three seasons.

“Derry Girls is a love letter to the place I come from and the people who shaped me,” she added.

She went on to say that perhaps the characters would return in some capacity so here’s hoping we get a movie in the near future.

“Who knows if Erin, Clare, Orla, Michelle and James will return in some other guises someday, but for now this is it for us and we’re excited to start filming this series with our incredible cast and crew to hopefully take our loyal fans on one last adventure.”

As filming is only due to start, it’s likely we won’t be getting the third season until at least mid-2022, but we can’t wait for it!
