Derry Girls creator Lisa McGee has commented on the possibility of a movie in the series' future. Derry Girls, which is loosely based on McGee's life experience, tells the tale of five teenagers living in Derry, Northern Ireland during the Troubles that took place in the 90s. Since its release in 2018, the comedy has struck a chord with viewers and very quickly gained a massive fanbase, earning a season 2 the following year. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, production on Derry Girls season 3 was delayed repeatedly, leaving nearly a three-year gap between seasons. Luckily for fans, after a long wait, Derry Girls season 3 will be premiering on April 12th, though it has been announced that this will be the show's final season.

With that said, Derry Girls season 3 may not be the end for its iconic characters. In a recent interview with Radio Times, series creator McGee was asked if she would ever consider doing a Derry Girls movie. McGee has made it clear that she is not opposed, stating "who knows?" However, McGee also pointed out that while she cannot see into the future, she does feel that she has taken the characters "where she wanted to take them" with the three seasons of Derry Girls. See her full quote below:

"Who knows! You never know what will happen in 10 years’ time, but as a writer, you just know when it’s complete. I’ll miss them, but I feel like I got to take those characters exactly where I wanted to take them."

While McGee certainly doesn't seem to have any concrete plans for a Derry Girls movie, she definitely isn't saying no, which will likely delight many fans. It will certainly be hard for many people to say goodbye to Erin, Orla, Claire, Michelle, and James in the Derry Girls series finale, but perhaps they will meet again. Perhaps with a bit of fan encouragement, McGee can be convinced to write a full Derry Girls movie.
