With the third and final season of Derry Girls now in full swing, fans are hoping that the iconic schoolgirls won’t be disappearing from our screens for too long.

Show creator Lisa McGee recently hinted at a potential future big screen debut for the hit comedy series, which has people guessing who would make an appearance.

Following the shock guest appearance of Hollywood royalty Liam Neeson in the final season’s premiere episode, fans have also been speculating on potential stars to be cast in a future Derry Girls Movie.

Belfast movie heartthrob and county Down native Jamie Dornan leads the charge, while Line of Duty’s Adrian Dunbar is also tipped to appear in a future film.

Other Northern Irish actors in the mix include Ciaran Hinds and James Nesbitt.

Girls Aloud songstress and Derry native Nadine Coyle has been chalked up to make an appearance, but only if she can find her passport of course.

Did we ever find out what her date of birth is, we know it makes her a Gemini.

Speaking on the bets people are placing, Nicola McGeady of Ladbrokes said;

“Fans can’t get enough of Derry Girls since the final season hit our screens last week, and if this recent run of money is anything to go by, we could be seeing the Derry Girls alongside Hollywood and Pop Royalty on the big screen not before long!”

As well as Northern Ireland natives, bookmakers have also seen some interest in Dubliner’s Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson making an appearance in a future Derry Girls Movie.

Gleeson is currently at 6/1 and Farrell is at 16/1.

What do you think? Could a Derry Girls movie be on the cards and if so who do you think will star in it?
