From the first episodeWe were conquered. After 3 seasons We’re still here to follow the adventures of Erin (Savorse-Monica Jackson), Claire (Nicola Coughlan as Penelope Bridgerton), Michelle (Jamie-Lee O’Donnell), Orla (Louisa Harland) and James (Dylan Llewellyn).

It’s always a pleasure to catch up with the Quinn-McCool family and their friends! This season of 7 episodes (ie 1 bonus episode to close the series) delights us yet again with short stories far-reaching and witty dialogues. An accent that makes us want to travel And extraordinary guests like Liam Neeson or Chelsea Clinton! In short, a delight.

Special mention as usual to Sister Michael (Siobhan McSweeney), the most interesting and iconic character in the entire series.

Unfortunately, all things come to an end and we feel the anxiety building as the episodes progress. Of course we see funny characters who have become our favorites like Uncle Com (Kevin McAleer) or Father Peter (Peter Campion.) But we feel over time.

Heroines grow up, Sister Michael’s faith wanes and her job is threatened. Derry’s daughters (including James) face the joys and sorrows of adolescence: first loves, first kisses, but also the first arguments and bereavement. The series reminds us that all is not rosy, especially 1990s IrelandAnd that our loved ones are not immune.

Claire’s move, the time jump, and the end of high school mark the end of an era and kick us in the stomach.

So we say between laughing and crying Farewell to Derry and its people Ireland’s future was decided in a referendum (the Good Friday Agreement) as we know it now. That was the beauty Derry Girls : Mix humor, contentment, and sweetness Political and historical events. The final scenes grab us by the throat, and with Erin’s words, our hearts fill with a little hope. What will the group think about today’s world? Are they still in touch? Friends? in a relationship?

Although we understand the end of these schoolgirls’ comedic adventures (after all, most of the cast is in their 30s or past), it’s not painful to say goodbye to them. Derry Girls From a time when we thought anything was possible, it’s a bubble of naivety and carelessness. The good news is that on days when we don’t want to grow, we can always start the series from scratch.

As of writing, we regret not having a Season 4 in the works On Netflix. We’re still hoping for a sequel in a few years…why not in our time? Although that would tarnish the real magic Derry Girls. This season 3 is like the entire series: funny, moving and perfect across the line. A flawless one.
