THE FIRST trailer for the second season of Derry Girls has arrived and it’s already shaping up nicely.
One of the funniest TV comedies of 2018, the series focuses on the comedic misadventures of a group of young schoolgirls growing up in Derry back in the 1990s during the time of the Troubles.
Created by Northern Irish stage and screen writer Lisa McGee, the show proved a hit with audiences and critics alike when it debuted back in January of last year.
The new trailer takes up where the last series left off, with the girls on fine form and on the lookout for male companionship.
Not that that idea goes down particularly well with their parents, of course.
“No funny business with these protestant lads,” I don’t want any of yous coming back pregnant” Tara Lynne O'Neill’s Ma Mary warns in the one-minute clip.
Father Peter is back too, having evidently had a change of heart about leaving the priesthood.
Full of visual gags like the sight of a nun reading The Exorcist, the show’s soundtrack doesn’t disappoint either with plenty of 90s classics on offer, including The Cranberries of course.
There’s also a wonderful reference to Australian soap Home and Away too as part of a slick preview that’s guaranteed to get you excited for the series ahead.
Derry Girls season 2 has yet to be given an official release date though, with the trailer promising that the series will be “coming soon”.
There could be even more to come from the Derry Girls too, with rumours of plans for a third series and even a film.
