This looks brilliant…
The first trailer for the second season of Derry Girls has been released, and it sees the Irish teens returning for a fresh dose of mischief.
The second season of Lisa McGee’s acclaimed sitcom is set to arrive on Channel 4 in the coming months, and the first trailer suggests the five friends are determined as ever to land themselves in a spot of bother.
In the brief glimpse, we see the Catholic schoolgirls (and Michelle’s cousin James) navigating the tricky prospect of meeting up with some Protestant schoolboys on a school trip.
“We heard you boys are having a party,” Michelle tells the gang of boys as she arrives at a bedroom door with her cohorts.
“Nope,” replies the slightly bewildered teenager.
“Well yous are now!” she replies undeterred.
Elsewhere in the clip, we see a series of distinctly ’90s scenarios – including a trip to see Take That and some seriously retro discos.
As the trailer comes to an end, we also hear the familiar sounds of The Cranberries’ Dreams once more, which opened every episode of the show’s first season.
Derry Girls debuted in January 2018 and immediately proved a huge hit – leading to its recommission after just one episode.
“Derry Girls is a blast of fresh air. It’s everything we want from Channel 4 comedy: young, warm, brimming with new talent and rooted in an underrepresented part of the country. And a hit to boot,” said Channel 4 boss Ian Katz at the time.
“I’m delighted that we’ve commissioned a second series and can’t wait to see what Lisa does next.”
An air date is yet to be announced.
