When is Derry Girls season 3 release date? 

It’s a party for the Derry girls fans! The network renewed this Northern Irish comedy for a third season. The production was interrupted by the pandemic, and hence it will take some time for the girls and the “wee English fella” to bless our screens again.

Derry Girls cast on season 3

Cast members shared their views on pandemic and shooting. “We’ve been pushed [filming] now a couple of times, and I think we are going to push again,” Erin actress Saoirse-Monica Jackson recently said in an interview. “It’s essential to us that we keep the authenticity of the show and that we don’t deliver any show that’s in any way a limited version. We need to shoot it at home [in Ireland].’

Is season 3 the last one?

Cast member Tommy Tiernan (who plays Erin’s long-suffering dad Gerry) has also suggested that the third season could be the show’s “last” ever. On the other hand, writer Lisa McGee, who compares the Derry Girls to her childhood, says fans need not worry. She is still “plotting” for potential further installments, as well as a Derry Girls film!! Till we are blessed with this movie, we still have a whole new season to catch up on.

 

“For a while, I didn’t know if it would work, but now an idea is starting to form in my head vaguely, so after series three, I’ll think about that a bit more,” McGee said. “I’d like to do it, and I think the cast would too, so that would be the long-term plan.

When is Derry Girls season 3 on TV?

Channel 4 renewed Derry Girls for a third series back in April 2020, starting in June. However, COVID-19 ruins the plans. “We were meant to start filming around now,” she said on Angela Scanlon’s Thanks A Million podcast in June 2020. “It was mad because when this all started, I think your brain makes assumptions to make you feel better, like ‘it’ll just be a month, it’ll be fine’.” “But filming has been put on hold for now which sucks, and we’re all really excited to go back and start again and see the scripts because we actually haven’t,” she added. 

In an interview, Saoirse-Monica Jackson recently said that filming would be postponed until the cast can reunite in Ireland. 

To watch seasons one and two, you’ll need to go onto Channel 4’s All 4, following Netflix’s announcement on 14th July 2020 that the arrival of season two on their platform had been delayed.
