‘Derry Girls‘ is an award-winning comedy series written and created by Lisa McGee. Place in the 1990s, the show follows a group of teens from Derry, Ireland, as they navigate their vibrant lives. The critically acclaimed show has been nominated twice for the BAFTA TV Awards under Greatest Scripted Comedy in 2019 and 2020. It initially expired on January 4, 2018, on Channel 4.
Derry Girls Season 3 Release Date
‘Derry Girls’ season 2 release on July 9, 2020, in its entirety on Netflix. However, the episodes were taken down from Netflix UK & Ireland on July 14, 2020, due to a mix-up over streaming rights, even though it’s available worldwide outside of their U.K. Before the second season aired on Netflix, it had been released in its home state (Ireland) on March 5, 2019, on Channel 4, together with the season wrapping on April 9, 2019. Season 2 includes six episodes with a runtime of 22-25 minutes each.
Considering its roaring success on Channel 4 and Netflix, it comes as no surprise that season 3 has been given instant renewal on April 10, 2019, shortly after season 2 attained its end on the initial network. But, fans will have to wait sometime before they get a hold of the next season. Filming for the next installment, which was meant to begin in June 2020, was postponed due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
The cast members have revealed that it is vital to the show’s ethics that they take in Ireland, which appears difficult anytime before the latter half of 2021. Thus, we can expected ‘Derry Girls’ season 3 to release sometime in 2022. Fans expressed their disappointment when cast member Tommy Tiernan (who plays Gerry) suggested that season 3 could be the final of the collection. Writer Lisa Mc Gee responded to this on Twitter, saying she is “plotting” to the future of the series, which might include a spin-off movie.
Derry Girls Season 3 Cast: Who can be in it?
Derry comes alive with the shenanigans of Erin (Saoirse-Monica Jackson), her uncle Orla (Louisa Harland), as well as their friends Clare (Nicola Coughlan) and Michelle (Jamie-Lee O’Donnell). They are combined by James (Dylan Llewellyn), who attends the all-girls Catholic school along with Erin and the others. Gerry (Tommy Tiernan) and Mary (Tara Lynne O’Neill) are Erin’s parents that share their house with Erin’s sister Sarah (Kathy Kiera Clarke) and her daughter Orla.
Sarah and Mary’s father, Joe (Ian McElhinney), was residing with them after his wife’s passing. Sister Michael (Siobhán McSweeney) is the headmistress of this school that Erin and her friends attend. The gang does not get along with the school’s prefect, Jenny Joyce (Leah O’Rourke). All the important cast members are set to reunite for the season , except for possibly a few exceptions. We might also see some fresh faces.
Derry Girls Season 3 Plot: What is it About?
Season 2 sees the teens trying to manage the various facets of their own lives, such as family, friends, love interests, and social life. It finishes with two defining events in Derry’s history — the IRA ceasefire and U.S. President Bill Clinton’s trip. James’ mum comes back to Derry with an offer which gives James the chance to reunite with her and escape the “dive.” But the end states the obvious that James is really a “Derry Girl.”
