It's coming up on almost a year since we last had a new season of Derry Girls and although watching the show on repeat truly never gets old, we are quite keen (read: absolutely chomping at the bit) for a new series of the award-winning comedy show. Well, the good news is that a third season has not only been confirmed but is very much on it's way. Here's everything we know.

What do we know about Derry Girls S3?

Like many much-loved shows filming for Derry Girls season 3 was put delayed last year amid the coronavirus pandemic, which is why we've had such a huge gap between seasons. Previously there were only three months between series 1 and 2.

The good news is the Derry Girl's own Nicola Coughlan (who has recently been busy with a little project called Bridgerton) has not only confirmed that series 3 is in the pipeline, but also that the project is moving along with scripts and storylines already written.

Speaking to her.ie Coughlan said, "We can't do anything involving a crowd right now, so logistically, it's really tough. But I spoke to [show creator] Lisa McGee recently and she talked me through the storylines. They're so brilliant, she added. "Which doesn't surprise me - she's just incredible - but it made me want to do it right now. "

Who has been cast in Derry Girls S3?

The main cast is expected to remain the same, with Saoirse-Monica Jackson returning to play Erin Quinn, Nicola Coughlan as Clare Devlin, Jamie-Lee O’Donnell as Michelle Mallon, Louisa Harland as Orla McCool, and Dylan Llewellyn as James Maguire, alongside the characters' respective family members and supporting cast.

Meanwhile, show creator Lisa McGee told Radio Times during an interview in 2020 that she would love to cast comedian Dara O Briain to play a role in the third series.

Do we have a trailer for Derry Girls S3?

Since they haven't actually begun filming yet, we don't have a trailer. So please enjoy this trailer for series 2 in the meantime.

When is Derry Girls S3 being released?

Filming for series 3 was due to start around June 2020, but was put off at the time and has continued to be put off since, so as of yet we don't have a official release date. Fingers crossed for 2021.
