The UK’s Channel 4 has dropped some very exciting news this morning: Derry Girls is officially getting a third season!
Unfortunately, we are still waiting for Season 2 to hit Netflix, but at least we know now that we have more to look forward to.
While the first season saw our girls navigate their teenage years in the 1990s, the second takes things further as they face love, parties, and school, amidst a ever-changing political climate.
As for season three, show creator Lisa McGee says:
“Obviously, the political timeline is a bit tricky and I’d need to do a lot of sitting down and thinking about how to work the plot out. Hopefully, they’ll say that we can have another go. I’d love that. I’d love to get the story up to the Good Friday Agreement but that’s tricky… It was the biggest moment in my lifetime and it was huge for Northern Ireland. It would be a shame not to try and tell that story.”
“Definitely, I know that we all would return for Season 3," Nicola Coughlan told JOE before the season was green-lit.
"There are so many more places that we could go with these characters. I have people coming up to me in the street and they’re like ‘we should do this, that, and the other’. There's a real hunger for it and we love doing it. We all certainly hope for more seasons."
We are keen!
