The third season of BBC's coming-of-age drama Phoenix Rise is set to commence principal photography in the Coventry, UK this month. 

The ten-part series follows the stories of six students who form an unbreakable bond as they navigate the trials and tribulations of school life in the Midlands.

Per the channel's plot summary, the misfit heroes are a "group of teens taking their first tentative steps back into mainstream education after being excluded. At first it seems like they have nothing in common, but they soon realise they all share one unique trait: an indomitable will to succeed.

"Ostracised by other pupils because of their backgrounds and reputation, these outsiders quickly find out that the only way they’ll survive school is by sticking together and forming a club of their own. Unlikely friendships bond them and fuel their determination not to be side-lined.

"The teens meet regularly in a disused boiler room, an abandoned space which becomes a sanctuary. For them, school becomes a hopeful place and a chance to finally right the wrongs of the past as they strive to find their place in the world."

Lauren Corah, Alex Draper, Jayden Hanley, Krish Bassi, Tara Webb and Imogen Baker star in the teen drama.

Phoenix Rise is primarily set and filmed in Coventry, West Midlands, where production was based for the first two seasons. 

The series is written and executive-produced by Perrie Balthazar (Bad Sisters, Coronation Street, Ackley Bridge) and Matt Evans (EastEnders, Riviera, A Discovery of Witches).

It is produced by BBC Studios Kids & Family and distributed by Sinking Ship Entertainment.
