The creator opened up about the prospect of a movie during a chat with The Irish Mirror this week.

Lisa said, "For a while I didn’t know if it would work but now an idea is starting to vaguely form in my head."

"So after series three I’ll think about that a bit more."

She added, "I’d like to do it, and I think the girls would like to do it. The cast even, some of them are men and boys."

"I think that would sort of be the long term plan."

However, Lisa's focus at the moment is solely on the upcoming third season.

She said, "We should have been shooting it now but it has been pushed back and we are trying to wait until it is safe."

“There is a lot of stuff to work out. Our show is quite complicated to film in these circumstances and we want to do it as well as we possibly can."

"We want it to be brilliant so we’re trying to figure a lot of stuff out at the minute but I think we’ll get there," Lisa said.
