Derry Girls Season 3 Review
What a fantastic way to end the show. In someways I don’t want it to end because it’s so enjoyable, but watching through this season and how things were so different and other characters got their time in the spotlight, it was really impressive how it all came to an end and how much hope and happiness it left you with.
In the last season we are leading up to the Good Friday agreement which sees the girls divided in whether they want to vote yes to this agreement or no, especially as they’re all becoming 18 in this season. We also get to see the girls start to become young women and growing up, especially with the romance blossoming between Erin and James, but we also got a really interesting episode that focuses on the mums and what they were like at the girls age which I really enjoyed because it gave them more character development too and was a nice refreshing difference from just following the same characters every episode.
In this season we see the girls go to what they think is a haunted house, birthday parties, characters unfortunately passing away – which was a big shock for the audience – as well as slightly less exciting episodes including the one on a train when they are meant to be going to the beach, which in my opinion was the worst of the bunch but did not ruin the overall story of the season.
I really enjoyed this season, I think it was a really good ending, of course as the girls grew up and were leaving the school you couldn’t keep it going forever and I think having the last episode being an extra long one really helped to tidy up all the loose ends and add a bit of conflict to the show as well. I am sad to see it go as it was really enjoyable but this show has so much rewatch-ability in it that I think I will happily watch it again and again and not get bored. I will also relish in the fact that it wasn’t overplayed, didn’t go on for too long, and didn’t lose that magic that we have loved since season one episode one.
If you haven’t watched Derry Girls for whatever reason I highly recommend it, it is a brilliant comedy show with a great cast of characters and it’s very different to anything that I have watched before in this sort of genre. I find British comedy really knocks it out of the park with these sorts of shows and even though it has ended now I feel you can easily still watch it because it is just so enjoyable.
What do you think of the final season of Derry Girls?
Until next time.
