Derry Girls - coming to your screen soon


The wait is over! Channel 4 has released the long awaited start date for third and final series of the critically acclaimed, award-winning Derry Girls.


As fans of the hit series know by now Derry Girls is the creation of acclaimed writer Lisa McGee who mined her own experiences to create a candid, one-of-a-kind, family-centred comedy.



While series one observed the gang navigating their teens in 1990’s Derry against a backdrop of The Troubles, series two charted them navigating their parents, parties, love interests and school against the backdrop of a precarious peace process.


In series three, viewers will see that while Northern Ireland is growing up this gang of eejits certainly aren't anytime soon – while there’s hope in the air that The Troubles may finally be over their troubles are only just getting started as they get ever closer to “adulthood”.


Derry Girls will once again follow Erin (Saoirse-Monica Jackson), her cousin Orla (Louisa Harland) and friends Clare (Nicola Coughlan), Michelle (Jamie-Lee O'Donnell) and Michelle’s tag along English cousin, aka The Wee English Fella, James (Dylan Llewellyn). The series also stars Tommy Tiernan as Erin’s long-suffering father Gerry, Tara Lynne O’Neill as Erin’s mother Mary, Ian McElhinney as Granda Joe, Kathy Kiera Clarke as Aunt Sarah and Siobhan McSweeney as Sister Michael, the straight-talking Headmistress of Lady Immaculate College, where the group attend.


The third and final series of Derry Girls starts Tuesday 12 April.


Derry Girls series one and two are available to stream on All 4 now!
