Everyone's favourite Irish comedy series is set to land on the telly in a matter of weeks.

So let the countdown commence!

It's been nearly three years since the Derry girls were on our screens, but the final season is bound to be worth the wait.

If you've been living under a rock and haven't a clue what the show is about let us help you out.

Derry Girls follows a group of teenagers growing up in Northern Ireland towards the end of the Troubles.

The show is full of charm, wit, and nostalgia and it's exactly what we need after two years of living through a pandemic.


But we're certainly not ready to say goodbye.

Speaking about the end of the show that made her a star, Nicola Coughlan said she sobbed reading the final script.

She told Radio Times that the final episode is just brilliant.

"There's so much detail in every single character in those scripts."

The Bridgerton actress continued, "It's really magical. I cried and cried and cried when I finished reading the scripts. Because, you know, it's our last one.

"It's bittersweet, but I think we're sending it off in style," she said.

Series creator Lisa McGee confirmed the show would end after series 3.

She said it is a "love letter to the place I come from and the people who shaped me. It’s been an honour to write it and I will be forever proud of everything it’s achieved".

Derry Girls returns to Channel 4 on April 12th.
