Derry Girls Season 1 Is Now Available To Watch On Netflix

One of the most acclaimed comedies of the past number of years has finally made its way to Netflix.

From the mind of writer Lisa McGee, Derry Girls is a hilarious, family-centred series set against the backdrop of the Troubles in Northern Ireland.

The series stars the likes of Nicola Coughlan and Tommy Tiernan, and this year became Channel 4's most successful comedy series since another Irish-led creation, Father Ted.

For those that haven't seen the critically acclaimed show, envision the juxtaposition of armed police to the soundtrack of Take That, with comedy that meshes Father Ted with The Inbetweeners.

The first season was broadcast on Channel 4 at the beginning of 2018, with the second season airing in March 2019. Immediately after the second season's finale, Channel 4 announced that there will be a third season.

In case you need more persuasion, here's the trailer:
