FIRST LOOK Derry Girls 3

Channel 4 has released the first look still and trailer for the long awaited third and final series of Derry Girls.

Ahead of the third and (sadly) final series of Derry Girls, Channel 4 has released more about what we can expect from Lisa McGee's hit comedy, which saw the writer mine her own experiences to create a candid, one-of-a-kind, family-centred comedy.

While series one observed the gang navigating their teens in 1990’s Derry against a backdrop of The Troubles, series two charted them navigating their parents, parties, love interests and school against the backdrop of a precarious peace process.

In series three, viewers will see that while Northern Ireland is growing up this gang of eejits certainly aren't anytime soon – while there’s hope in the air that The Troubles may finally be over their troubles are only just getting started as they get ever closer to “adulthood” …

Derry Girls will once again follow Erin played by Saoirse-Monica Jackson, her cousin Orla played by Louisa Harland and friends Clare and Michelle played by Nicola Coughlan and Jamie-Lee O'Donnell as well as Michelle’s tag along English cousin, aka The Wee English Fella, James, played by Dylan Llewellyn.

The series also stars Tommy Tiernan as Erin’s long-suffering father Gerry, Tara Lynne O’Neill as Erin’s mother Mary, Ian McElhinney as Granda Joe, Kathy Kiera Clarke as Aunt Sarah and Siobhan McSweeney as Sister Michael, the straight-talking Headmistress of Lady Immaculate College, which the group attend.

Derry Girls returns soon to Channel 4
