Show creator, Lisa McGee revealed in September of this year that a third season was coming. However alongside this good news was the bad news that it would also be the final season of the Channel 4 comedy.

Since it first aired Derry Girls has won the hearts of people all over Ireland, and the world. The first two seasons were heartwarming, hilarious and even heartbreaking at times too.

Lisa explained that “it was always the plan to say goodbye” after three seasons.

“Derry Girls is a love letter to the place I come from and the people who shaped me,” she added.

She went on to say that perhaps the characters would return in some capacity so here’s hoping we get a movie in the near future.

“Who knows if Erin, Clare, Orla, Michelle and James will return in some other guises someday, but for now this is it for us and we’re excited to start filming this series with our incredible cast and crew to hopefully take our loyal fans on one last adventure.”

For now it’s believed we’ll get to see the third and final season by mid-2022, so we’ll be holding off on our goodbyes until then!
