Our Girl stars Michelle Keegan as a British Army soldier

BBC military drama series Our Girl is back for a third season and will feature storylines set in Nigeria.

Our Girl, created and written by Tony Grounds, will be partly set in Nigeria as lead character Corporal Georgie Lane encounters challenges during a rescue mission in the north of the country, an area prone to Boko Haram attacks.

Corporal Lane, played by Michelle Keegan (Coronation Street), is still grieving the death of her fiancé, who was killed during a tour of duty in Nepal, which makes her susceptible to impulsive behaviour.

The third season consists of 12 episodes, divided into three blocks. The current episodes are the second block. Two episodes will include storylines set in Nigeria. Some of the previous episodes of the series were shot in African countries including Kenya and South Africa.

Our Girl will air every Tuesday at 21.00 on BBC First on MultiChoice’s DSTV pay TV platform. The series airs in the UK on BBC1, produced by BBC Studios. It is distributed internationally by RLJ Entertainment.
