Derry Girls — Lisa McGee's masterpiece offering a rare glimpse into the day-to-day life of a group of savagely sassy teenage girls (and one teenage boy) in Northern Ireland during the Troubles — first premiered on Channel 4 in January 2018. The comedy immediately garnered a loyal following.

Season 1 and 2 of Derry Girls chronicle the coming-of-age of Erin (Saoirse-Monica Jackson), Clare (Nicola Coughlan), Orla (Louisa Harland), Michelle (Jamie-Lee O'Donnell), and the "wee English fella," James (Dylan Llewellyn).

Though the first two seasons received considerable critical and fan acclaim, Lisa confirmed that the series would conclude with a third and final season. The last season of Derry Girls premiered in Europe in the spring of 2022, but US-based viewers weren't able to stream it immediately on Netflix.

Season 3 of 'Derry Girls' kicked off on Channel 4 with brand new episodes in April of 2022.

Set in Derry in the 1990s, Derry Girls offers a colorful take on everyday life during the Troubles. Over the past two seasons, the show has explored the ethno-nationalist conflict with a great deal of lightheartedness and humor, showing how life unfolded despite the atrocity.

Season 3 premiered on Channel 4, a British network, on April 12, 2022. Loyal viewers waited almost three years for the new episodes to drop, and the final season did not disappoint.

Comprised of six episodes, Season 3 of Derry Girls casts light on the latest complications the hilarious group has to face. Audiences in Ireland and in the U.K. have seen how it all ends, but when will stateside-based viewers find out?

'Derry Girls' helped stars like Nicola Coughlan garner international fame.

A mightily talented actress, Nicola Coughlan attended the Oxford School of Drama and the Birmingham School of Acting. As she told the Guardian, she struggled to lock in acting gigs after graduation, moving to London three times in four years. Derry Girls propelled her to international stardom — and new roles in Bridgerton and Seize Them!, Curtis Vowell's comedy starring Aimee Lou Wood, Lolly Adefope, and James Acaster, soon followed.

The first two seasons of Derry Girls are available to stream on Netflix now.
