We haven’t seen the last of the Derry Girls, because Channel 4’s hit coming-of-age comedy will be back for a second series.
Written by Being Human screenwriter Lisa McGee and based on McGee’s own experiences as a teenager, the show follows 16-year-old Erin and her friends who live in a world of armed police, British Army check points and ‘peace’ walls.
Here’s everything you need to know about the return of the series set against the backdrop of the Northern Ireland conflict in 1990s Derry…
When is Derry Girls series two on TV?
Channel 4 has confirmed that Derry Girls series two will begin airing on Tuesday 5th March at 9.15pm.
Channel 4 commissioned a second series of Derry Girls after just one episode. The gang have already filmed and creator Lisa McGee had hinted that the comedy would return in March – and that there will be more to come afterwards…
“They’re talking about March, early March,” she told The Nolan Show. “See, that’s all Channel 4. That’s when I think it will be released and we’re talking about doing a third series. Hopefully, if the second one goes well and everything goes according to plan, we’ll do a third series.”
“I would say there’s no second album fare.” she said.
Who will star in series two of Derry Girls?
The young stars are all expected to reprise their roles in series two. This means we’ll probably be seeing more of Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Louisa Harland, Nicola Coughlan, Jamie-Lee O’Donnell, Dylan Llewellyn and Siobhan McSweeney.
