Recap: Derry Girls season three

Derry girls was one of the funniest TV sitcoms in years, said Hannah Jane Parkinson in The Observer. Inspired by writer Lisa McGee’s teenage years at a Catholic school in Northern Ireland in the mid-1990s, it has proved an amazingly effective combination of comedy and drama – indeed a masterpiece of ‘pathos, humor and double denim’.

The third and final season is upon us, and it picks up where the second left off. The gang – Erin, Clare, Orla, Michelle and cousin James, the “little Englishman” – await their GCSE results and decide to while the time away by making a short film about the troubles.

It’s not crucial to the plot, but the scene is “typical of how the show deals with its context,” said Nick Hilton The Independent. “Derry girls deals neither with nor with the problems. Instead, it’s about the resilience of human vanity and selfishness in the face of the greatest of challenges.” Just like in MASH US Army doctors “had the ability to be drunk and disobedient even under constant threat of shells, Derry girls is an electric display of adolescent monomania”.

There’s reason to be concerned that this series might feel like an afterthought, Ed Power said in The Irish Time. Since the sitcom first aired in 2018, various key players have moved on to other projects. McGee has written a drama for Channel 5 and Nicola Coughlan (Clare) was busy filming Bridgeton. But such fears proved unfounded. According to the evidence from the first episode, this will be “a victory lap to enjoy”. Recap: Derry Girls season three
