Our Girl is heading to Nigeria and is returning really soon to BBC One
Our Girl is heading to Nigeria.
Following on from that shocking twist that aired back in October, series three of the BBC One military drama will resume on Tuesday, June 5 and see Michelle Keegan return to her role as Lance Corporal Georgie Lane.
This time, Georgie is sent to Nigeria on a training mission to help train local forces in the fight against terror, even as she’s still left reeling from Elvis’ death on the battlefield.
However, it’s not long before she and others go off grid in a rescue operation to locate missing girls, placing them in grave danger.
The official synopsis reads: “Still grieving and heartbroken from the death of Elvis Harte (Luke Pasqualino), Lance Corporal Georgie Lane (Michelle Keegan) is sent to Nigeria on a training mission, alongside 2-section.
“Working as part of the British Army’s effort to help train local forces in the fight against terror, Georgie throws herself into work helping to train local medics, as well as overseeing a local women’s health initiative.
“However, whilst 2-section work hard helping to equip the Nigerian Army, everyone is soon put on edge when they encounter a local crime boss and a seemingly ruthless band of mercenaries in the village near where a group of school girls have been abducted.
“As 2-section try to help the Nigerian forces locate the missing schoolgirls, Georgie unknowingly places herself and other members of 2-section in grave danger, when they go off grid.”
Speaking previously about the challenging role, Michelle said: “The first month in South Africa, I struggled because you’re trying to find your feet. You push yourself. I did eight months away – six-day weeks, and 14-hour days, working on top of a garbage heap. I did it!
“It was the sense of missing out – my dogs, a birthday, a family meal or my best friend having a baby. I didn’t think I’d be able to do it. It’s given me the drive and push.”
Our Girl season three will resume on Tuesday, June 5 at 9pm on BBC One.
