Derry Girls Season 3

Derry Girls Season 3 is Happening On Netflix – Everything You Need To Know!


It has been confirmed that Derry Girls, a Channel 4 dramedy, will premiere on our television screens later this year, with a release date of 2022.

NBC has released a first-look teaser trailer for the third and final season of the hit show, which includes a brief clip that appears to show the girls and ‘wee English fella’ James being arrested.

According to the clip, which was released in December 2021, the raid appears to be at night, with the entire gang being instructed to raise their hands in the air as helicopter spotlights shine on their faces. Erin screams, “This is a set-up!” as her law-abiding high school friend Clare (Nicola Coughlan) babbles in response.

While the beloved Channel 4 comedy has been absent from our screens since April 2019, there appears to be reason for fans to be cautiously optimistic, as a return date of some time in 2022 has been set.

In an exclusive interview that took place on Friday, October 22nd, Nicola Coughlan revealed that she would be “in Belfast filming on Monday morning” for the third and final season of Derry Girls, which will air on RTÉ.

The third season, she stated, “I believe it will be on a much more epic scale this time around.” Lisa [McGee, the show’s creator] was well aware that she had lofty goals for this one, and that she had a clear vision for what she wanted to accomplish. She’s a complete and utter genius. Like, there isn’t really another word for her other than “awesome.” “Everything is so brilliantly balanced and nuanced, and the characters, there’s so much detail in every single character in those scripts,” she continues.

Siobhan McSweeney previously stated that she hoped to begin filming the third season later in 2021, despite the fact that the show’s production has already been delayed on more than one occasion.

“The one thing I would say is that we are hoping to be able to do it this year,” said McSweeney, who portrays Sister Michael on the show, according to Radio Times. As you can imagine, it’s a scheduling nightmare for everyone involved.

I believe we are all impatient to get it done for very obvious reasons. “[Show creator] Lisa [McGee] does not want to compromise on quality, obviously, but I believe we are all impatient to get it done.”

It was reported in October that Erin actress Saoirse-Monica Jackson said, “It is extremely important to us that we maintain the authenticity of the show and that we do not deliver any show that is a limited version of the original show.” “It’s important for us to shoot it here at home,” says the director.

While the news that the series is ending may have disappointed fans, the show’s creator and creator of Derry Girls, Lisa McGee, has hinted that she is still “plotting” potential future instalments, which could include a Derry Girls film.

We still have a full season to look forward to – as well as the possibility of a long-awaited romance between Erin and James – in the meantime, however.

In the meantime, you can catch up on the previous two seasons on Netflix, and continue reading for everything you need to know about the upcoming third season of Derry Girls.

Derry Girls season 3 Release date has been set

Derry Girls will premiere on Channel 4 in 2022, according to the network. We’ll keep this page updated as new information becomes available. Derry Girls was renewed for a third season by Channel 4 back in April 2020, with filming set to begin in June of that year.

A spokesperson for Bridgerton revealed to the Belfast Telegraph in January 2021 that the cast was still waiting for production to resume because of the necessity of shooting in Derry.

The actress explained that “we’re still waiting because it’s integral to the show that we film in Derry.” “And we can’t do anything that involves a large group of people right now, so it’s extremely difficult logistically.”

During an appearance on Angela Scanlon’s Thank A Million podcast (via Metro) in June 2020, she stated, “We were supposed to start filming around now.” ‘It was crazy because I believe your brain makes assumptions to make you feel better, such as ‘it’ll be a month, everything will be fine,’ when something like this happens.

The actress went on to say, “But filming has been put on hold for the time being, which is a bummer, and we’re all really excited to go back and start again and see the scripts because we haven’t seen them yet.”

On the other hand, Nicola Coughlan stated in late October 2021 that she would be “in Belfast filming on Monday morning” for the third and final season of Derry Girls, which would air in 2022.

Following Netflix’s announcement on July 14, 2020 that the release of season two on their platform would be delayed, you’ll have to turn to Channel 4’s All 4 to watch seasons one and two of the show.

Will season 3 be the last of Derry Girls?

The answer is, unfortunately, yes – in September 2021, Derry Girls writer Lisa McGee confirmed that the popular comedy series would be cancelled after three seasons.

“It was always the intention to call it quits after three series,” McGee explained. For now, this is it for us. We’re excited to begin filming this series with our incredible cast and crew in order to hopefully take our loyal fans on one last adventure.” “Who knows if Erin, Clare, Orla, Michelle, and James will return in some other guise someday, but for now, this is it for us.”

Tommy Tiernan, who portrays Erin’s father Gerry, previously stated in March 2020 that he believed season three would be the final season of the show.

According to Metro, he stated during an appearance on Jason Manford’s Absolute Radio show that “as far as I know, this is the very last series of…

McGee took to Twitter at the time to inform fans that she was in the midst of writing series three and that she didn’t know what the future held, but that they should “please don’t worry.”

The creator of the Channel 4 sitcom Derry Girls has also revealed that she has been thinking about making a Derry Girls spin-off film.

When she appeared on RTÉ Radio 1’s Ray D’Arcy’s show on the 20th of July, 2020 (as reported by the Belfast Telegraph), she stated that she is starting to think about ideas for a Derry Girls movie.

It took her some time to figure out if the plan would work. “Now, a vague idea is starting to form in my head, so after series three, I’ll think about it a little more,” she said. “I’d like to do it, and I believe the rest of the cast would as well, so that would be the long-term strategy.”

With season three, McGee continued, “We should have started filming right away, but we had to put it off for a while.” It’s important for us to wait until it’s safe because there’s a lot of stuff to figure out.”
