Derry Girls creator Lisa McGee hints at what is in store in season three
Since it launched in 2018, the sitcom has become one of the most popular shows on Channel 4 – and has captured the hearts of people across the globe.
And following the end of season two earlier this year (and the announcement that yes, season three is on the way), it’s safe to say that fans are eager for more.
Now, the series’ creator Lisa McGee has hinted what is in store when Derry Girls returns for season three.
Speaking to Her at the recent Virgin Media Television new season launch, she teased:
“[There’s] not really [much I can share], except they’ll definitely just be getting into more trouble.
“They haven’t grown up or wised up any, so there will be more shenanigans really.”
In case you’re unfamiliar with the show, Derry Girls is a candid, one-of-a-kind, family-centred comedy.
While series one saw the gang navigating their teens in 1990’s Derry against a backdrop of The Troubles, series two saw them navigating their parents, parties, love interests and school against the backdrop of a precarious peace process.
Following the news of Derry Girls’ season three renewal earlier this year, Lisa McGee said:
“I love writing this show and I’m so thrilled to be able to continue the Derry Girls story, thank you Channel 4, Erin and the eejits live to fight another day!”
Derry Girls series two launched with a consolidated audience of 3.2m viewers for episode one, which makes it Channel 4’s biggest UK comedy launch episode for 15 years.
In Northern Ireland, the series two launch has been the most watched programme across all channels since series one.
