British teen sitcom Derry Girls, developed and written by Lisa McGee, debuted on Channel 4 on January 4, 2018, and ran for three seasons. The series was inspired by McGee’s upbringing in Derry, Northern Ireland, in the 1990s, during the final years of the Troubles, and became the channel’s most successful comedy since Father Ted.
After airing on Channel 4 in January and February of 2018, the first season broke all records for viewership in Northern Ireland for a television series since modern ratings tracking began in 2002. Shortly after the premiere of the pilot episode, the show was renewed for a second season, which aired in March and April of 2019.
Filming for the third and final season, which is set between 1996 and 1997, was originally scheduled to begin in 2020 but was pushed back due to the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic on television production. It debuted in April 2022. On May 18, 2022, a 45-minute special episode named “The Agreement” broadcast, which took place in 1998 at the signing of the Good Friday Agreement.
Know if It’s Coming or Not!
Season 3 of Derry Girls had concluded, and it ended on a devastating note with a bonus episode set during the referendum on the Good Friday Agreement.
But creator and writer Lisa McGee confirmed that there are no imminent plans for any follow-ups, so fans who think a new season or Derry Girls movie is on the horizon will be sadly disappointed.
She added at a press screening for the bonus episode that she and director Michael Lennox had discussed some ideas for spin-offs, but that production on them had been cancelled.
But you can surely seek the pleasure of watching the other three seasons on Netflix.
