This summer, Channel 4 in the UK finished airing Derry Girls’ third and final season. The show will eventually be available on Netflix globally (including the UK) starting in October 2022.
A gang of girls (and James) grow up during the Northern Ireland problems in the comic series created by Lisa McGee, which has gained popularity over the years.
In January 2018, more than four years ago, the show made its debut on our televisions. Late in 2018, Netflix purchased the exclusive rights for the rest of the world, where it now hosts the program as a Netflix Original.
For those who don’t know, Derry Girls season 3 is the show’s final season, and while the writers left up the possibility of the characters returning, it’s definitely the end for the foreseeable future.
The Release Date for Derry Girls Season 3
On Tuesday, April 12, at 9:15 p.m., Channel 4 debuted the final season of Derry Girls. All4 now offers episodes for on-demand viewing.
The cherished series will be accessible to US viewers on Friday, October 7, according to Netflix.

Sarah McCool, the mother of Orla, is portrayed by Kathy Kiera Clarke, while Gerry’s beloved Joe McCool is back and is harassing him at every chance by Ian McElhinney.
The appearances of Damien Molony (Brassic, Being Human) and Emmet J. Scanlan (Peaky Blinders, Hollyoaks) in the season’s finale has also been confirmed.
Guest stars have also reportedly been mentioned. Despite being in touch with Lisa McGee, the show’s creator, Jamie Dornan recently told Vulture that he would love to be engaged in the project. However, schedule conflicts have in the past presented challenges.
“I know Lisa McGee, who created it; we actually had an email exchange today about something,” he remarked. We had discussed trying to get me to do something, but because of the locations, the timing of the shoots, and the fact that I’m constantly traveling, it never really worked out. I think it’s brilliant and it makes me feel so pleased that I got to appear on that show.
Following the comedian’s tweet about how much he enjoyed the show, McGee also told the Radio Times that Dara Briain would be fantastic in the series.
“Comedy performers are always around me. I adore Dara Briain. I’m not sure if he performs in plays or not! said she.
What’s the storyline for Derry Girls’ third season episodes?
Each episode of season three will have a subject and genre, “like a small movie,” according to the show’s writer and creator Lisa McGee. Below you’ll see her episode previews.
Initial episode: The Night Before
“Goodfellas serves as a source of tone inspiration. The episode is titled The Night Before and takes place over the course of one evening. We first meet the gang the night before they receive their GCSE results. The girls are concerned that they may have to flee from their house because they will act out so badly and end up in jail.
“A stray cat has been adopted by Grandpa Joe in the interim. Although he genuinely enjoys it, it is killing all the animals in the neighborhood, and he and Gerry must dispose of a pet rabbit’s body. In that sense, it resembles a very funny thriller and is dark and almost noir.
“The family hires a hot plumber who, to everyone’s surprise, Ma Mary appears to be having an affair with. It’s entertaining to try to figure out what’s really going on. The gang will also take the stage for the school’s Stars in Their Eyes concert in support of Children in Need, and those two stories collide.
A Stranger on A Train, the Third Installment
“The entire episode takes place on a train, and two different stories cross over since the children and adults are sitting in two different compartments,” says the author.
It’s sort of a horror movie where the girls wind up visiting a spooky home in Donegal and a lot of strange things take place. To try and communicate with their deceased mother, the family visits a psychic in the interim. One of my favorites, it’s a really wonderful episode.
“For us, something totally different. Sarah and Ma Mary are attending their class of 1977 reunion at their old school. We find out that not much actually transpired at that old school reunion; it was more like I Know What You Did Last Summer!
Halloween in episode six
Halloween in Derry is huge in and of itself, but the girls are headed to see Fatboy Slim, they don’t get tickets, so Michelle makes this elaborate deception on national TV to acquire some VIP passes. Of course, they are discovered, and that has a lot of repercussions. It’s a genuinely happy and delightful episode. Clare runs into a girl.
The narratives “are the greatest we’ve ever done,” Nicola Coughlan tweeted to her followers.
Yes, a trailer has been released, and it gives us a preview of what the third and last installment will include. We’ll follow the crew as they attempt to navigate their GCSEs and leave school, which will completely alter their world as they know it, with all of our old favorites back in tow!
