Plot Synopsis

Amidst the political conflict of Northern Ireland in the 1990s, five high school students square off with the universal challenges of being a teenager. The series opens with a bomb scare on a nearby bridge, but Erin, Clare, Michelle, Orla and James are facing something much more daunting: the first day of school. Unable to afford the upcoming school trip to Paris, the girls turn to the workforce to make some money. But will their efforts go up in smoke? It's the day of the big test, but an encounter with a dog detours the girls to a potentially divine apparition and a visit with a very godlike priest. The arrival of a Ukrainian refugee disrupts Erin's life but presents opportunity for James. Joe's romantic interest stokes the ire of his daughters. DERRY GIRLS had its U.S. premiere on Friday, December 21, 2018 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, as Netflix released all six episodes of this half-hour, scripted comedy series' first season.

Season 2 of DERRY GIRLS had its U.S. premiere on Friday, August 2, 2019 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, as Netflix released all six episodes of the new season. Change may finally be coming to Northern Ireland, but the high school hardships of Erin and her friends show no signs of letting up. The second season opens with the girls' attempting to connect with some Protestant boys, but hitting continuous snags. Ma Mary is very bothered by a big bowl. Then, a new teacher rocks the boat at Our Lady Immaculate, while a disrupted movie screening leaves Ma Mary haunted by many questions.
The entire seven-episode third season dropped on Netflix in the United States on Friday, October 7, 2022, marking the Season 3 U.S. debut of DERRY GIRLS. As Northern Ireland takes a big step into the future, so do the girls -- but not without hitting a few messy stumbling blocks along the way. Season 3 opens with the girls sneaking into school to see their GCSE results ahead of time and winding up in police custody. The new member of the Quinn family is out for blood.
