The critically acclaimed Derry Girls is set to return for a second season and this afternoon Channel 4 released the trailer for the show’s eagerly anticipated return.
The Northern Irish-based sitcom follows the lives of teenagers during the Troubles and is set to return to our screens next month.
Over three million people watched the pilot episode of the series which had its second series commissioned after the first episode was broadcast.
