Trailer: Our Girl returns for Season 4 this March
James R | On 22, Mar 2020
Our Girl is back on BBC One this March for its fourth run, and a trailer gives us a glimpse of Georgie Lane’s return.
Michelle Keegan will reprise her role once again for Tony Grounds’ military drama, which picks up one year on from Lane’s tour in Bangladesh. 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.
Georgie’s happy to focus on her training role in the UK and send trainee medic Mimi in her place – especially as she’s privately haunted by thoughts of Elvis’ death. But with Mimi’s confidence dipping after some complex training exercises, Georgie is compelled to return to Afghanistan to support the new recruits.
In Kabul, she’s pleasantly surprised at how well she copes, and full of promise about how Afghanistan has changed. On the way to a local hospital in Kabul, Georgie and some of the section are caught up in a suicide attack which they later learn intended to target Dr Bahil, the hospital administrator and candidate in the upcoming local elections. Georgie learns that the attack was orchestrated by Aatan Omar… Elvis’ killer, who is still at large. The news floors her – being back in Afghanistan is dredging up painful memories after all…
Elsewhere, we meet the newest members of 2 Section: Prof, an ex-teacher with a painful past; Throbber, the section’s clown who has some growing up to do; and Sandy, their new Commanding Officer who’s determined to show them who’s in charge. Mimi, meanwhile, harbours a secret about her home life.
The series premieres at 9pm on BBC One on Tuesday 24th March. Here’s the trailer:
BBC One renews Our Girl for Season 4
22nd January 2019
BBC One has renewed Our Girl for Season 4.
Written and created by Tony Grounds, the military drama stars Michelle Keegan (Tina And Bobby, Brassic) as young medic Georgie Lane. Keegan will officially reprise her role once again, with a six-part run that will pick up one year on from Lane’s tour in Bangladesh.
A positive Georgie is making leaps in her career, having been promoted to Sergeant, and now training 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.
Keegan says: “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.”
Tony Grounds, writer and creator, says: “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.”
Filming will take place in April for four months in South Africa.
