They've somehow got their hands on the hottest tickets in town and the chance to meet Fatboy Slim, but something tells us things aren't going to go exactly to plan. Lisa McGee's ragtag crew of sharp-witted rascals are in the crosshairs of something big, which promises to bring the series to a bittersweet conclusion.
Derry Girls season 3 episode 6, however, was quickly followed by The Agreement, a one-hour special set one year after the events of the finale. With Erin and Orla annoyed that the Good Friday Agreement referendum might overshadow their joint 18th birthday party, the prospect of adulthood begins to dawn, and it isn't pretty.

If you find yourself eager to watch the Derry Girls finale online while you're off on holiday or abroad for business, you’ll likely encounter annoying geo-restrictions that will prevent you from accessing your usual streaming service.

Where to watch Derry Girls season 3 around the world
As with the first two seasons, Derry Girls fans in the US, Canada and Australia will be able to watch the gang's latest antics on Netflix.
The only catch is that, at the time of writing, there's no word on when Derry Girls season 3 will come to Netflix.
It took the best part of a year for the first two seasons to make their way to the streaming service, and while we hope that's not the case for season 3, you might want to brace yourself for another lengthy wait to avoid disappointment.
In the meantime, you can refresh your memory with the previous two seasons, which are still available on Netflix for you to watch.
