Netflix has delayed Derry Girls’ release date and we’re devastated

Fans of Derry Girls, we’ve got some bad news for you. The Irish comedy was due to be released on Netflix on May 8, but it looks like fans will have to wait longer than expected.

A spokesperson confirmed that the show won’t be joining the streaming service until later in the summer.

There’s been a Derry Girls-shaped hole in our hearts since the last episode of series two aired in April so we are pretty gutted about this news.

The second instalment of the hilarious Irish series went by in the blink of an eye but we adored every minute.

The second series had many iconic moments including Gerry making sambos at the funeral and the gangs frantic journey to Belfast for the Take That concert.

We’ll just have to wait patiently for Netflix to add the hilarious Irish show and re-watch episodes of Friends for the time being.
