The Derry Girls finale aired last night.
We are gutted that another season has ended so quickly. The good news is that the girls will be returning for a third season.
Channel 4 announced the third season on their Twitter last night.
That might be the end for series 2 of #DerryGirls, but don’t worry it will be returning for series 3! @LisaMMcGee @SaoirseJackson @nicolacoughlan @louisa_harland @JamieLeeOD @Djllewellyn 🎉🎉🎉 pic.twitter.com/yhyOaCIIQh

"It's no surprise that Derry Girls continues to delight a growing legion of fans - a combination of magical writing and adorable characters make this show both timely and timeless. We're delighted to confirm a third series - don't tell Ma Mary, but I'm breaking open the Christmas cupboard in celebration."
