One of Netflix’s hottest sitcoms at the moment is the Lisa McGee import from the United Kingdom, Derry Girls. The series just returned to Netflix around the world for season 2. If you’re wondering if and when Derry Girls is coming back for season 3, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s when season 3 will be on Netflix. 

Derry Girls is a sitcom based in Northern Ireland and follows four teen girls in high school getting up to shenanigans. It’s classed as a Netflix Original but is, in fact, produced by Channel 4 in the UK and internationally distributed by Netflix. There have been multiple Channel 4 shows that’ve come to Netflix exclusively over the past few years.

Season 2 is now on Netflix across the world as of August 2nd, 2019. With that said, those in the United Kingdom will likely still have roughly a years wait before streaming it there.

Has Derry Girls been renewed for season 3?

Derry Girls Official Renewal Status: Renewed (as of April 2019)

Yes, you’ve read that correctly you won’t have to wait at all when it comes to learning the fate of season 3 as it has already been confirmed.

Thanks to the show’s success on Channel 4 and how its performed internationally via Netflix, it was given an instant renewal when season 2 wrapped up in April 2019.


On the renewal, Lisa McGee who serves as the showrunner and creator said the following: “I love writing this show and I’m so thrilled to be able to continue the Derry Girls story, thank you Channel 4, Erin and the eejits live to fight another day!”

When will Derry Girls season 3 be on Netflix US?

As you may know with British shows, they often don’t stick to a consistent release schedule. Derry Girls has, however, stuck to a yearly schedule (give or a take a few months) and we suspect it’ll happen again for season 3.

The only confirmed date so far is that the series will definitely be returning to the air in 2020.

Without official dates, we’re left to speculate a bit but here’s when we’re expecting season 3 to come to Netflix. we’re expecting season 3 to arrive on Channel 4 in the UK in early-to-mid 2020. That would mean season 3 would then come to Netflix several months later in either late Summer or Fall 2020.

For Brits, that will mean it won’t be until 2021 before it hits Netflix in your region. 4oD hosts all episodes, however.
