Derry Girls Season 3: When is the final season coming to Netflix?
While the season aired this spring in the UK, US viewers will have the opportunity to watch all the new episodes when the series arrives on Netflix on October 7, 2022. Season 3 has seven episodes, including the 45-minute finale.
Season 2 ends in late 1995, when President Clinton was visiting Derry to deliver a hopeful speech to the people in Northern Ireland. Meanwhile, in Season 3, there are more episodes revolving around pop culture icons of the 90’s such as the Spice Girls and Fatboy Slim.
Series creator Lisa McGee has also explained that the timeline of the finale, which includes the Good Friday Agreement of 1998, doesn’t necessarily add up if you examine it. However, to her it needed “to make sense of it in my head or I couldn’t write it. So I like to think of it as Erin looking back on her life and it’s a wee bit blurry," she explain to the LA Times.
