Critic Reviews for Derry Girls Series 2

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (5)

Moving effortlessly between pitch-perfect depictions of teenage female experience, brazen sexual humour, knowing political references and shrewd observations... this mature, deft comedy is just as wonderful the second time around.

Derry Girls is for the most part closer in spirit to hormones 'n humiliation larks such as Inbetweeners.

Mar 6, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The absolutely must-see comedy of 2019 - even if you aren't Irish.

Aug 15, 2019 | Full Review…

At its best, Derry Girls hits the emotional intersection of cringe, earnestness, and slapstick.

Aug 14, 2019 | Full Review…

It made me laugh like few things in recent years....I wanted to savor the second serving, but it was all I could do to spread the three hours over three nights. That's serious self-control, folks.

Derry Girls' central message of finding resilience in laughter, therefore, is more valid than ever.

Aug 9, 2019 | Full Review…

If it does nothing else, the second season of Derry Girls reminds viewers that no one wants to go back to the militarized borders, checkpoints, and simmering violence of the nineties.

Aug 9, 2019 | Full Review…

Amusing and worthy example of the driest British humor one can find, Derry Girls continues to use nostalgia to tell a funny and moving story. [Full Review in Spanish]

Aug 9, 2019 | Full Review…

Some topical shows explore events that hit maybe too close to home to feel enjoyable now. But being a period piece, Derry Girls doesn't have to stand in for current news cycle trauma -- its placement in history stands on its own.

Aug 7, 2019 | Full Review…

As a whole, Derry Girls is still the hidden comedy gem of 2019, coming from the most unlikely place and delivering the most unlikely laughs.

    Still one of the best shows on Netflix! A must see! The characters and the settings are amazing! Makes me want to take a trip to Northern Ireland to check out the locations! Can not wait until season 3 comes out!

    Love Derry Girls, so original and fun to watch! The girls are such a hilariously convincing group of high school friends with ridiculous dramas. It's a delightfully witty, charming, and authentic show - that's easy to enjoy.

    As good as Season 1.

    Across two seasons, I was able to spot twenty-seven redheads. Five stars.

    The funniest thing I have seen in a while!

    A stronger (and certainly more uplifting) sophomore year.
