Exciting posts from the cast of Derry Girls as the final season starts filming

It’s been seven hours and fifteen days since Derry Girls creator Lisa McGee announced this series would be the last.

It hasn’t been easy to come to terms with. Where will we turn to now for double denim style inspo, or to see Tommy Tiernan be ripped a new one by his father in law? It’ll be hard living in a world without the gals, but at least we have season 3 to look forward to.

This morning, Lisa McGee gave us a sneak peek of the very beginning of filming the final instalment of the beloved show:

Goosebumps, honestly.

Meanwhile, Jamie Lee O’Donnell (who plays our gal Michelle) gave us stationery envy with this sneaky shot of the latest script:

We love a good highlighter collection.

Over on Saoirse Monica Jackson’s (Erin’s) page, we saw a reunion of long time frenemies Gerry and Joe.

Welling up over here, tbh.

And if you’re wondering how Nicola Coughlan will juggle her duties as wee lesbian and Penelope Featherington, she confirmed recently via Twitter how everything will work:

It’s giving us Robin Williams in the restaurant scene of Mrs Doubtfire and we’re here for it.

Basically, we can’t wait for season 3 and will spend every moment between now and then lapping up any Insta hints and Twitter updates we catch sight of. How else does one pass the time, in fairness?
