A five-part series has been commissioned by the BBC following the one-off episode earlier this year, which attracted an audience of 5.3 million.
Former EastEnders actress Turner starred as Molly Dawes, a struggling Londoner who joins the Royal Army Medical Corps.
The new series will follow Molly during her first deployment as an army medic while the British Army withdraw from Afghanistan.
"In the same year when our British troops withdraw from Afghanistan, the series will follow the extreme life-changing experiences she is forced to face both on tour and when she returns back home."
The 90-minute drama aired last night on BBC One to positive reviews from critics and viewers on Twitter. Grounds said that he would love to continue working on the show if the BBC give him the green light.
"It's definitely something that I'd love to do. It's so fascinating. Each of those kids [joining the army] has got a story," said Grounds.
"I guess the BBC will see what happens when it goes out. They'll wait and see the reaction. And if people love it, I guess we get taken out for a Cup-a-Soup somewhere."
Our Girl pulled in an audience of 5.34 million at 9pm last night (March 24) on BBC One.

Turner will play Molly Dawes in Tony Grounds's single 90-minute drama about a girl with little future, who joins the Royal Army Medical Corps and heads to the war in Afghanistan.
"I am so excited to be a part of Our Girl," said Turner. "It is a beautifully written drama of one girl's journey through life.
"Molly is such an interesting character who shows such strength and determination. She's a girl who you cannot help but love."
Writer Grounds added: "This is a film about a female combatant, but she is also a daughter and a sister. Every soldier is a citizen first and we explore their choices that lead them to an Army Training Camp and how the ensuing months will change their lives forever."
Our Girl will air on BBC One in March. »
