Ardal O’Hanlon to join the Derry Girls for Series 2
The Derry Girls have a new fella joining the family - celebrated Irish comedian and actor Ardal O’Hanlon (Father Ted) is set to appear in Series 2. O’Hanlon will make a special guest appearance as Eamonn; the awkward, middle-aged mummy’s boy of the Quinn/McCool extended family.
Series 2 of the hit Channel 4 comedy has wrapped filming and will return to screens with 6x30’ new episodes in March 2019.
Fans will have to wait and see what shenanigans the gang get up to, but rest assured, Erin Quinn (Saoirse Monica Jackson), her cousin Orla McCool (Louisa Harland) and friends Clare Devlin (Nicola Coughlan), Michelle Mallon (Jamie-Lee O'Donnell) and Michelle’s tag along English cousin, aka The Wee English Fella, James Maguire (Dylan Llewellyn) will be back, navigating their teens in 1990’s Derry in their hilarious, unique, yet all too familiar fashion.
Derry Girls is the creation of acclaimed writer Lisa McGee who has mined her own experiences to create a candid, one-of-a-kind, family-centred comedy set against the backdrop of The Troubles.
