T he very popular Irish comedy on Channel 4 is back! Derry Girls season 2 premiered on Tuesday 5th March at 9.15 pm. But that does not mean that all the fans in America get to see it soon too. And that’s because Netflix has still not added season 2 to the streaming platform. When will that happen now?
When Can We Expect Derry Girls Season 2 on Netflix?
Derry Girls initially premiered on Channel 4 in January 2018. But it wasn’t until December 2018 that the series was added to Netflix. And that means that American fans did not get to see it for a full whole year. So, judging by the looks of last time, Derry Girls season 2 won’t be on Netflix any time soon. Or maybe, not even by the end of this year. And if things remain the same as last time, we should expect the show to be added to Netflix by January 2019. Even if that doesn’t work out, the show will be on Netflix hopefully by the same time around next year. However, there is no harm in hoping that Netflix decides to not make American fans wait that long!
Everything to Know about Derry Girls Season 2
There is already one episode of the season 2 out. But is that fulfilling what we were expecting? Season 2 was expected to take the show from the poignant end that it faced at the end of the first season. The show runner Lisa McGee had claimed that toying with the idea of covering the ceasefire and how it unsettled people in season 2. Plus, she is also going to include Bill Clinton’s 1995 visit to Derry. As for the characters, she wants to give one of the girls a boyfriend or Clare to get a girlfriend and James to join a band.
As for the cast, all the young characters have returned for their roles from season 1. And that means we get to see more of Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Louisa Harland, Nicola Coughlan, Jamie-Lee O’Donnell, Dylan Llewellyn and Siobhan McSweeney.
Derry Girls is the hilarious comedy based on the life of a 16-year old teenage girl in Northern Ireland. It follows the story of Erin and her friends who live in a world of armed police, peace walls and British check posts. For those who love Derry Girls, there is more excitement than the show being back for season 2. Well, it is hinted that Channel 4 might even order a third season if all goes well. But that won’t be happening any time soon. But we might already have season 3 in the works by the time season 2 reaches Netflix users.
