Derry Girls has everything that you’d expect a typical comedy-drama show portraying high school girls to have. Its first season was broadcast in January and February 2018, and it was renewed for another season which was aired on March and April of 2019. It was loved immensely by a huge fan base, but it became the most-watched show in Ireland for the most part of it. The Channel 4 sitcom effortlessly made it to the top hits back in 2018.
There was a lot of buzzing and hot debating about the show’s first two seasons, and Season 3 undeniably would be a blast. It was renewed for the third season, but it was delayed because of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
About the Show
For the children of the 90s, Derry Girls is a perfect watch. It is a great sitcom for anybody who loves carefully proportioned humor in comedy-dramas based in Northern Ireland. The series fits perfectly in the must-watch bracket with an unforgettable script, schooldays nostalgia, and an awesome sense of character and plot development. The first two seasons of the series were an astounding success, and the same was expected out of its third season.
The pandemic has caused great damage to the entertainment media industry, and the repercussions haven’t faded away yet. The production of the series is being constantly delayed due to the same. Naturally, since the production hasn’t kick-started with the same zeal yet, the show is likely to be delayed for a long time. Moreover, it has been announced that Season 3 of Derry Girls would be it’s last.
Why is Season 3 being Delayed?
The long-awaited Season 3 of Derry Girls is being abruptly delayed and postponed due to the pandemic. Unexpected disturbances are being caused in the production, and keeping the safety of the crew members in mind, the show is likely to be released not before 2022. It is disheartening since the return of the show was announced back in 2019 itself.
The cast and crew are expected to get back to work soon enough, and once the production has had a head-start, it would become easier to anticipate the potential release date of the season. Till then, no updates are expected to come from the officials. The buzz has it that season 3 of Derry Girls will be all set to be premiered on Channel 4 in 2022, though much can’t be said about the exact release date. Until then, previous episodes are present on-demand via All4 or Netflix.
The first two seasons of the series are available to watch on Netflix until the third, and sadly, the show’s final season comes out. Since the production team is all set to work on it more vigorously now, the official date of its release, that’ll be in 2022, can be announced anytime. Till then, the first two seasons of the sitcom are still as fresh as ever and will make you laugh no matter how many times you watch them.
