WATCH: The official Derry Girls season 3 trailer is here just in time for Paddy’s Day

Katy Brennan


The official trailer for the final season of Derry Girls has been released just in time for Paddy’s Day.

And, no surprise, it looks absolutely unreal.

Erin, Orla, Michelle, Clare, and the wee English fella are back for one last hooray – and they’re definitely ready to cause even more mischief and get into more trouble than ever.

As well as that, season three looks set to see the crew growing up, ready to get their GSCE, finish school and prepare to take on the real world. We’re not sure if we’re ready, though.

Things look like they might get a little spicy for Aunt Sarah, as the trailer shows a very attractive new plumber shows up on the family’s doorstep.

“If you’re gonna be that hot, you should at least have the common decency to be a bit thick” we hear her say to him.

Unfortunately, there is still no exact air date for the final season yet.

However, we know filming has wrapped – so fingers crossed it will arrive sooner rather than later.

Season three was first announced back in April 2019, but it was delayed due to Covid. Given the delays and the fact that filming’s done, we’d place our bets on a Summer or Autumn release.

Nicola Coughlan perviously said the show’s emotional ending had her balling her eyes out.

“It’s really magical. I cried and cried and cried when I finished reading the scripts,” she said. “Because, you know, it’s our last one.

“It’s bittersweet, but I think we’re sending it off in style.”

You heard her, have some tissues at the ready!

While you’re waiting for season three, Derry Girls seasons one and two are available to stream on Netflix now.
