Keegan previously teased when filming for season four will begin. Speaking during a live chat on Instagram, she confirmed that Brassic season three will premiere this October, after filming for season four kicks off "in August".
Speaking exclusively to RadioTimes.com, Gilgun recently teased the future of Brassic beyond season four: "As long as people come back, we’ll always have stories. I don’t think we’ll ever run dry."
In season three, Joe Gilgun (This is England), Keegan (Our Girl) and the rest of the cast return, as Vinnie O'Neill (Gilgun) is released from prison and attempts to stay out of trouble (for about five minutes).
The second season ended on a cliffhanger, as Vinnie confessed his true feelings for Erin (played by Keegan), and she whispered something inaudible just as the police took him away.
"I know it's wrong, but you're the first thing in the morning, and you're the last thing at night," he told her, before revealing he didn't know "how to tell" her how much she means to him.
Read on for everything you need to know about Brassic season three.
When is Brassic season 3 on TV?
Brassic season three will be released later this year on Wednesday 6th October on Sky Max and streaming service NOW.
What is Brassic season 3 about?
Vinnie O'Neill is the charismatic leader of a group of friends who commit outlandish petty crimes.
He's long held a candle for Erin, a fiercely independent single mum who dated Vinnie's best friend, Dylan. At the end of season two Vinnie finally confessed his feelings for her.
However, Erin's own response was left unclear and we ended on a cliffhanger, with viewers left in the dark about what exactly she whispered in his ear before the police took him away.
However, season three will hopefully answer any questions viewers might have about the pair's relationship.
The season three synopsis reads, "With pressure building from the police and crime boss Mr. McCann, Vinnie is forced to ruthlessly take no prisoners in his bid to escape. Bigger, bolder and more bonkers than ever, it’s a hectic world of bulls, snakes, kidnappings, betrayal, and this time, a full-size horse… It’s classic Brassic!"
