BBC start filming Our Girl Series Three

The BBC have started work on the third series of their popular Michelle Keegan starring drama Our Girl. This time out the action moves to Nepal.

Alongside Keegan returning as Corporal Georgie Lane the series will also feature Shalom Brune-Franklin as Private Maisie Richards. Tony Grounds is once again writing the series.

In something of a departure from the previous series, the third season will run to 12 episodes and three separate missions. The first will take Georgie to Nepal to help deal with the aftermath of a major earthquake.

Michelle Keegan says: “I’m so happy to be shooting the new series of Our Girl out in Nepal and so very excited to bring more stories of Georgie Lane to life. It’s an amazing experience to be working on such important stories with such an incredible group of people.”

Luke Pasqualino (The Musketeers, Skins) will return as Special Forces officer Elvis Harte, alongside Ben Aldridge (Lark Rise To Candleford, Fleabag) as Captain James. Two Section will include Rolan Bell (EastEnders) as Kingy, Sean Sagar (Top Boy) as Monk, Simon Lennon (Grantchester) as Brains, Sean Ward (Coronation Street) as Fingers, Mark Armstrong as Spanner, Dwane Walcott as Peanut and Ashley Houston as Dyno. New cast include Rudi Dharmalingam (Rellik) as Milan and Harki Bhambra (Two Doors Down) as Rab.

Tony Grounds adds: “On a disaster relief mission to Nepal after an earthquake hits the country, 2 Section is thrown into a perilous and life-changing situation. Michelle Keegan, brilliantly reprising her role as Corporal Georgie Lane, shows remarkable courage in the face of adversity and inspires the troops to perform their duty with bravery and compassion.”

Caroline Skinner, Executive Producer, BBC Studios says: “We are absolutely thrilled to be back in action, filming the new series of Our Girl right now in Kathmandu and Cape Town, with Michelle Keegan reprising her role as the inimitable Corporal Georgie Lane. With an expanded 12-part series commission, this time Our Girl will follow our characters on three distinct missions in far-flung, dangerous parts of the globe – and we cannot wait to bring their new adventures back to BBC One later this year.”

Further information on the following two missions will be revealed later in the year.

Series three will be directed by Tim Fywell (River, Happy Valley) and Jon Wright (Ordinary Lies, The Good Karma Hospital), produced by Tim Whitby (Shameless) and executive produced by Tony Grounds and Caroline Skinner for BBC Studios, and Christopher Aird for BBC.
