Derry Girls fans have been eagerly awaiting the return of the comedy series and they don’t have to wait much longer, because it will be back on our screens in the next few weeks.
The return of the Channel 4 show, created and written by Lisa McGee, has been teased in recent weeks, though a start date for the third season has yet to be revealed.
However, it has now been confirmed that the new season – which will be its last – will begin on April 12, so fans don’t have to wait long until it returns.
As a result, it’s less than two weeks away from the upcoming final season, which was announced by the broadcaster and its creator on social media yesterday amid expectations.

Channel 4 has revealed the kickoff date on its Twitter account, along with a first look teasing the funnier antics of the five teenagers at the heart of the show.
The characters have become beloved by viewers who have watched the adventures of Erin Quinn (played by Saoirse-Monica Jackson, 28) and her friends since 2018.
Her team includes Orla McCool (Louisa Harland), Clare Devlin (Nicola Coughlan), Michelle Mallon (Jamie-Lee O’Donnell) and James Maguire (Dylan Llewellyn).
The show, set in Derry in the mid-1990s, debuted in 2018 and has become one of Channel 4’s most popular comedy shows over the years since its premiere.
Teasing the upcoming third season, creator McGee warned viewers to “fasten their seat belts,” with many fans disappointed that the new season would be the show’s last.

She told Radio Times recently, as it was filmed during the pandemic and was “really stressful”, she wasn’t sure if the cast would “really handle” that it was the end.
Coughlan added: “It’s kind of weird. I think it’s a show where it really feels like it belongs in the fans now, if that makes any sense.” She said the experience was a bit “murky”.
Derry Girls returns for the third and final season on April 12 on Channel 4. You can catch up through All4 right now.
