New episodes of Derry Girls have been added to Netflix

FRIDAY NIGHT viewing sorted!

Since its addition to Netflix last year, Derry Girls has amassed thousands of new fans as people across the world binge-watched the first series (although some had to watch with subtitles in order to understand the Northern Ireland accents!).

If you are among the army of fans eagerly awaiting season 3 of the hit show, you may have noticed that Netflix has a 'New Episodes!' banner stamped across the show on their website.

Unfortunately, the entertainment gods have not suddenly dropped season 3 as a very welcome surprise during the pandemic, but the entirety of season 2 has finally been added to the popular streaming site.

Arguably even funnier than the first season, series 2 of the hit show includes Bill Clinton's historic visit to Derry, the girls making a sneaky road trip to catch Take That perform in Belfast, and the instant classic 'Blackboard scene'.

Nicola Coughlan, who plays Clare, took to Twitter to share the good news with a video captioned ' Happy Derry Girls Series 2 on Netflix Ireland and the UK Day Everyone!', and while the name is a bit too long to really catch on, we appreciate the sentiment.

In the video, she said "People have been waiting a long time for it and I hope it brings you some joy during these strange times.

"And I hope you enjoy me hanging off a cliff! ...which I did not personally enjoy, but if it makes you laugh that would make me very very happy."
