Why We’re VERY Excited For The Return Of Derry Girls
We’ve been counting down the days since Season One concluded, but the waiting is almost over – Derry Girls is back! The cracking comedy returns to our screens on Channel 4 (Virgin TV 111) at 9.15pm on Tuesday, and we can’t wait to catch up with the crew!
So why is it one of the most anticipated comebacks of the year? Well, if you need to ask you probably didn’t watch the first go-round – so get on All4 and set that right! But if you still need convincing, here’s why we’re already gearing up for Tuesday night…
THERE’S NEW TREATS ON THE WAY
While details on the whole series have been kept under lock and key, we do know one exciting factoid; sitcom legend and all-round hero Ardal O’Hanlon is joining the show!

THERE’S LOADS MORE STORIES TO TELL

That means we can expect the same blend of wicked wit and daring dialogue that we fell in love with first time around – and that’s music to our ears!
THE TRAILER ALONE HAS US FREAKING OUT!
From an inspirational new teacher to Sister Michael getting her karate on, there’s we’ve already got a ton of teasers as to what’s coming our way. Will they get to see This and That – sorry, Take That?! What’s going to with the Protestant boys? And could Orla possibly manage to make a snow suit cool?! There’s only one way to discover the answers to those questions – and we’re going to be glued to our TVs to find out!
