The second season of Derry Girls will premiere on Channel 4 on Tuesday March 5th at 9:15pm, it has been announced.
Derry Girls explores the lives of ordinary people living under the spectre of the Troubles, all seen through the eyes of a local teenager. Armed police in armoured Land Rovers, British Army check points and “peace” walls are all an everyday reality for 16-year old Erin and her friends. But, despite all that, Erin has other things to worry about, like the fact the boy she’s in love with, doesn’t know she exists.
The comedy series is produced by Hat Trick Productions and stars Saoirse Monica Jackson, Tara Lynne O’Neill, Tommy Tiernan, Ian McElhinney, Siobhan McSweeney, Louisa Harland, Kathy Kiera Clarke, Nicola Coughlan, Jamie-Lee O’Donnell, Dylan Llewellyn and Ardal O’Hanlon. In the opening episode of season two, Erin (Saoirse-Monica Jackson) and the rest of the gang are excited to attend an outdoor pursuits weekend which aims to bring Protestant and Catholic school kids together as part of a peace initiative. But peace is the last thing on Michelle’s (Jamie-Lee O’Donnell) mind once she finds out that there will be Protestant lads there!
