Derry Girls Season 3 Plot!

The plot for the upcoming season is under wraps. As the previous two seasons were super witty and heartwarming for their hilarious storyline and the side-splitting one-liners. Fans can expect the same expressions in Derry Girls season 3 as well. 

Nicola Coughlan’s other Twitter posts prove this point right, saying “the storylines in this series are the best we’ve ever done”.

Waiting for season 3 seems all worth it! 

We can expect some romance in the air for Erin and James as season 2 ended with Erin’s jealousy towards James’ love interests. 

How will the ceasefire affect the gang? This is definitely going to be a fun and thrilling part. 

Creator says ‘Derry Girls’ could get a movie

Since both the actors and the characters are getting older, season 3 will likely be the beloved show’s final season. Derry Girls creator and showrunner Lisa McGee told I News that after this upcoming season, she would be open to a movie and then end the show after this upcoming season.

When will Derry Girls season 3 be on Netflix US?

Derry Girls had, however, stuck to a yearly schedule (give or a take a few months) and we did originally expect it to arrive in either late 2020 or 2021. 

So what will happen is that the show will air first in the UK on Channel 4 and then come to Netflix in the US and most other territories soon after. Netflix UK will face another long wait.
