Derry Girls | Series 3 Preview (Channel 4)

The critically acclaimed, award-winning Derry Girls is back as Lisa McGee's candid, family-centred comedy returns for the third and final series.

While Northern Ireland is growing up, this gang of eejits certainly aren't any time soon. There's hope in the air that The Troubles may finally be over, but our gang's troubles only seem to get worse as they get ever closer to 'adulthood'.

Derry Girls once again follows Erin (Saoirse-Monica Jackson), her cousin Orla (Louisa Harland) and their friends Clare (Nicola Coughlan), Michelle (Jamie-Lee O'Donnell) and Michelle's tag-along English cousin, aka 'The Wee English Fella', James (Dylan Llewellyn).

The series also stars Tommy Tiernan as Erin's long-suffering father Da Gerry, Tara Lynne O'Neill as Erin's mother Ma Mary, Ian McElhinney as Granda Joe, Kathy Kiera Clarke as Aunt Sarah, and Siobhán McSweeney as Sister Michael, the straight-talking headmistress of Our Lady Immaculate College.

It's the first episode and the gang are back! Tomorrow is GCSE results day and while passions run high, confidence is at rock bottom. If things go badly, how will they face their mammies again? They definitely need a plan... Back home, a new member of the Quinn household is causing chaos in the neighbourhood.

Derry Girls returns Tuesday 12th April at 9:15pm on Channel 4.
