The entire first season of Derry Girls has arrived on Netflix in Ireland

The entire first season of Derry Girls has officially arrived on Netflix.

A couple of months back, it was announced that Channel 4 show Derry Girls would soon be available on Netflix but unfortunately, the release was then delayed slightly.


Thankfully, it's here now - so that's the rest of our week sorted.

In case you're unfamiliar with the show, Derry Girls is the creation of acclaimed writer Lisa McGee who has mined her own experiences to create a candid, one-of-a-kind, family-centred comedy.

While series one saw the gang navigating their teens in 1990’s Derry against a backdrop of The Troubles, series two saw them navigating their parents, parties, love interests and school against the backdrop of a precarious peace process.

Following the news of Derry Girls' season three renewal earlier this year, Lisa McGee said:

“I love writing this show and I'm so thrilled to be able to continue the Derry Girls story, thank you Channel 4, Erin and the eejits live to fight another day!"


Derry Girls series two launched with a consolidated audience of 3.2m viewers for episode one, which makes it Channel 4’s biggest UK comedy launch episode for 15 years.

In Northern Ireland, the series two launch has been the most watched programme across all channels since series one.
