As Michelle Keegan prepares to reprise her role as Georgie Lane in a new six-part series.
The new set of episodes will make up Series 4 of Our Girl, contrary to some publications who incorrectly referred to the eight Nigeria, Belize and Bangladesh Tours episodes as the fourth series when they were in fact the second part of Series 3.
Once again the series will be written by Tony Grounds with filming due to take place in South Africa this April for four months.
Series 4 takes place one year on from 2 Section’s last tour in Bangladesh and follows Georgie who has been promoted to Sergeant and now trains a new bunch of medics.
Happily living back in Manchester with her family, Georgie is insistent to her friends in 2 Section that she’s happy settled in her new job and will not be joining them on their upcoming deployment to Afghanistan no matter how much they want her to.
However, when a night on the town results in a near-fatal incident, she can’t deny that the painful memories of losing the love of her life, Elvis, to a Taliban attack is the real reason she doesn’t want to go back. Georgie realises that she needs to return to Afghanistan to face her own fears.
Speaking about returning to Our Girl, Michelle Keegan said “Being in Our Girl has been one of the highlights of my career so far. I feel very lucky to be part of the show and I’m really excited that it's coming back.
The audience response has been so positive and I think Georgie is a character who resonates with viewers. I absolutely love playing the role. Be prepared for another incredible series - Georgie’s still got unfinished business.”
Writer and creator Tony Grounds added “I’m absolutely delighted that Michelle Keegan will be reprising her role as Georgie Lane for another tour of Our Girl. 2 Section are deployed to Afghanistan as part of NATO’s Resolute Support Mission to develop the military capability of the Afghanistan government’s armed forces.
But with the Taliban controlling large swathes of the country and Georgie Lane’s haunting memories of Elvis lost last time she was in the country, this mission was never going to be easy."
Our Girl returns later this year on BBC One
