Derry Girls Season 3 is about to come on Netflix! Rumor has been going around for a while that the Derry Girls didn’t have long to live. This series produced by Channel 4 and distributed by Netflix had reached two seasons with viewers increasingly devoted to the misadventures of this group of Irish girls (and a boy) in their day-to-day 90s high school, and it had already been confirmed a third on the way with Lisa McGee repeating as lead writer. Now McGee herself has confirmed that next season will be the last and that there has been no pressure to make it so, since the plan was always for the story of Erin, Clare, Orla, Michelle, and James to be extended to three installments.
Derry Girls Season 3: Will it be the finale?
“It was always the plan to say goodbye after three seasons. Derry Girls is a finite story: it follows five ridiculous teenagers as they slowly… very slowly… become adults, and around them the place they call home begins to change as well, and Northern Ireland enters a new, more hopeful phase ”, McGee declares in an extensive statement on Twitter, where he has also taken the opportunity to thank both the team and the viewers for the existence of the series. “ Derry Girls is a love letter to where I come from and to the people who have shaped me. It has been an honor to write it and I will always be proud of everything I have achieved ”.

“I would like to thank the people of Derry and Northern Ireland for supporting us. Thanks also to the team, the amazing Hat Trick Productions, and a special thanks to Channel 4, the channel I thought I was watching; the channel that made me want to write comedy, and the only one that could have done our show. ” The third season of Derry Girls will begin filming soon, without Netflix having yet teased a release date. “Who knows if Erin, Clare, Orla, Michelle, and James will come back one day, but for now this is it for us.”
Starring Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Louisa Harland, Nicola Coughlan, Jamie-Lee O’Donnell, and Dylan Llewellyn, Derry Girls is one of Netflix’s series with the hottest following.
