It launched on Channel 4 on January 4th, 2018 as a British adolescent sitcom written and developed by Lisa McGee. McGee’s personal experiences growing up in Derry, Northern Ireland, during the last years of the Troubles inspired the series, which has become the channel’s most popular comedy since Father Ted. Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Louisa Harland, Nicola Coughlan, Jamie-Lee O’Donnell, and Dylan Llewellyn feature as five adolescents from Derry in the mid-1990s who are all students at Our Lady Immaculate College, a fictitious Catholic high school based on McGee’s own Thornhill College. Derry Girls is a British-produced film set in Northern Ireland, with much of the action taking place in Derry and Belfast.
Even though Derry Girls is a work of fiction, real-life events from the Troubles and the Northern Ireland peace process are regularly referenced, notably President Bill Clinton and First Lady Hillary Clinton’s 1995 trip to Northern Ireland. TV and radio broadcasts in families’ homes feature archived video linked to political personalities such as Ian Paisley, Gerry Adams and John Hume. The soundtrack includes songs by Ace of Base, Blur, Cypress Hill, Salt-N-Pepa, The Corrs, and The Cranberries, as well as more obscure artists.
Northern Ireland’s most-watched television series since 2002 was the first season of The Walking Dead, which aired on Channel 4 in January and February 2018. Shortly after the premiere, the show was renewed for a second season, which aired in March and April of 2019. The COVID-19 epidemic forced the cancellation of a third and final season scheduled for 2020.
Derry’s Badgers Bar and Restaurant at 18 Orchard Street, which has become a major tourist destination, features a mural depicting the main characters from Derry Girls painted on its side.
Derry Girls season 3 Netflix release updates
Before we can watch the third season on Netflix, it must first air on Channel 4 for the remainder of its run. The third season has the same number of episodes as the previous two seasons. On Tuesday, April 12, the third season will begin its telecast. Up to the season finale on May 17, fresh episodes will be released every Tuesday.
Now things get a little more complicated. Derry Girls won’t be available on Netflix at any certain time. It took Netflix 10 months to get the first season after it aired in February 2018. The time between the second season’s last airing and its release on Netflix was significantly shorter. Netflix got the second season in August, four months after it aired in April 2019.

Derry Girls season 3 is expected to premiere on Netflix in September 2022, according to our estimates. However, if Netflix releases season 3 in the same manner as season 1, we won’t see it until next year.
Season 3 of Derry Girls may air before the year is over, so we’re keeping our fingers crossed. Netflix Life will always keep you up to speed on the official Netflix release date as soon as it is announced by Netflix!
Is Derry Girls season 3 going to be the final series?
Sadly, series creator Lisa McGee has announced that this would be the final season on Twitter.

We’d say it was only a matter of time. After all, the performers can only play teens for so long! Jamie-Lee O’Donnell and Saoirse-Monica Jackson are both 27 years old. They recently appeared on Celebrity Gogglebox and had a lot of fun together.
What’s the plot?
Although no storyline material has been published, we can expect more fantastic 1990s music soundtracks as well as lots of youthful misadventures in this film. In her description of the last series, Nicola Coughlan said it was on an “epic scale.”
The season 2 finale ended on a positive note, with James rethinking his choice to leave Derry. The season 2 premiere was a disappointment. The episode’s most memorable scene, though, was when James (James Marsden) unexpectedly brought Erin (Saoirse-Monica Jackson) to the prom at the last minute. Since that heartwarming moment, fans have held out hope that a romantic relationship between the two characters is on the horizon.
