While the first two seasons of Derry Girls are currently streaming on Netflix UK, it’s not yet known when new episodes will be available on the streaming giant.
The original cast will return, along with some ‘main’ guests. However, Nicola Coughlan, who plays the much-loved character Clare Devlin, says she is ‘depressed’ about her role reduction in the final installment of the series.
The star had to sacrifice a lot of filming time for Derry Girls when she was first cast for season two of Bridgerton.
“There’s got to be a compromise,” Coughlan recently told the press, “And you know, they had to cut my part a bit, which was hard. Really, very hard. But I thought, you know, the fans of the show will be happy.”
