Derry Girls came to and end because the show is about teenage girls, and by the end of season 3 they are adults and heading off in different paths.

The show's creator, Lisa McGee announced back in 2021 that the third season will be the final one.

Posting on Twitter, she said: "It was always the plan to say goodbye after three series.

“Derry Girls is a coming-of-age story; following five ridiculous teenagers as they slowly… very slowly… start to become adults, while around them the place they call home starts to change too and Northern Ireland enters a new more hopeful phrase – which was a small, magical window of time.

"Derry Girls is a love letter to the place I come from and the people who shaped me.

"It has been an honour to write it and I will forever be proud of everything it’s achieved."

Will there be a Derry Girls spin-off?

Creator Lisa has confirmed that, although fans would absolutely love one, there won't be a spin off of Derry Girls.

Speaking to DigitalSpy, she said: "I wouldn’t do a spin-off now, and I have no plans to do a spin-off."

She added: "I have all this stuff that's been put to one side because I wanted to finish Derry Girls properly, and put all my focus on that and do it justice, but those things have to sort of move up the queue.
