The bell rang for the last time and the school life of Erin, Orla, Clare, Michelle and James came to an end. Even as the characters in the show progress in their lives, the fans are unwilling to move on and are desperately waiting for Derry Girls season 4. But will there ever be a fourth season? Let’s discuss what we know about it.
Derry Girls, created by Lisa McGee, is a British teen comedy-drama series that debuted on Channel 4 in January 2018. The show revolves around the lives of a group of Irish city teenagers who navigate teenage life against the backdrop of ‘The Troubles’ in Ireland.
Will there be Derry Girls season 4?
The third season of the comedic drama Derry Girls premiered on Channel 4 on April 12, 2022. And the season came to a close, with the finale on May 18, 2022. Speaking of the future of the series, alas, this is the end of the road for our favorite characters, as the show will not return for Derry Girls season 4. However, fans can take solace in the thought that the series was always meant to end with the third season.
Lisa McGee, the series creator, also spoke about the show’s ending. She said, “You never know what will happen in 10 years, but as a writer, you just know when it’s done. I’ll miss them, but I feel like I need to get those characters exactly where I wanted them.” She also added, “I’m going to write something else, another comedy, which I’ve been putting off for a while. It’s really exciting but a little scary.”
What do we know about season 4 of Derry Girls?
The show spent two seasons featuring the school life of Erin, Orla, Clare, Michelle and James. But like all good things, their school life must come to an end. In the series’ third season, As they get closer to adulthood, the problems of our favorite Derry Girls may take center stage. As The Troubles draw to a close, Northern Ireland is also modernizing.
However, this is as far as we will ever know about Derry Girls as the series comes to an end after the third season. This is because Lisa McGee, the show’s creator, always intended that Derry Girls would be finished after three seasons, the end of The Troubles in Northern Ireland and the end of their academic careers.
In the cast of the British teen comedy-drama series, Saoirse-Monica Jackson plays Erin Quinn, while Nicola Coughlan plays Clare Devlin. The show also stars Louisa Harland as Orla McCool, Jamie-Lee O’Donnell as Michelle Mallon and Dylan Llewellyn as James Maguire. We also have Tara Lynne O’Neill as Mary Quinn, Ian McElhinney as Granda Joe and Kathy Kiera Clarke as Aunt Sarah.
Additionally, Siobhán McSweeney stars as Sister Michael and Tommy Tiernan can be seen as Gerry Quinn, among a few others. If the show returns with Derry Girls season 4, we’re sure the majority of the main protagonists will return in their respective roles. At the same time, the fourth season could also introduce some new characters to the story.
