6 TV Shows To Binge Watch If You're Missing The Derry Girls Gang

6 TV Shows To Binge Watch If You're Missing The Derry Girls Gang

It's only been two months since the first series of Derry Girl's ended and we're already missing those wee girls.  To keep us going we've already binged watched some of the best TV shows available now so, in good faith, we're sharing them with you so you don't have to go through this difficult period alone:

1. The Young Offenders (RTÉ Player)

After the success of the movie, Conor and Jack are back in Limerick and the series has all the same magic and charm that its predecessor has. The show is receiving rave reviews from fans of the movie and critics and you can catch up on all the episodes you've missed so far on the RTÉ Player now.

2. Crazyheads (Netflix)

A modern day Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Crazyheads is full of quirky bad ass characters and comedy horror. If you're obsessed with shows about female friendships and demons then you'll love this.


3. Queer Eye (Netflix)

A group of a different kind, Netflix's new Queer Eye brings together the Fab 5 - five super talented gay men who help transform men who've found themselves stuck in a bit of a rut. The show was a hit back in the early noughties and Netflix has brought it back with an all-new cast of fab men. Not only is it hilarious but you'll be reaching for the tissues by the end of each episode which is exactly what Derry Girls does for us.


4. Moone Boy (Sky Boxsets)

Another coming of age comedy that you might have missed, Moone Boy, is a comedy series full of heart. It's all about Martin and his imaginary older friend Sean, played by Irish favourite and writer of the series Chris O'Dowd. You can watch all three seasons of the show back to back now and it's worth it for the laughs and standout cast.

5. Chewing Gum (Netflix and All4 Player)

Chewing Gum managed to slip under a lot of peoples radars and it's without a doubt one of the funniest shows of the last 10 years. Set in London, 24-year-old Beyoncé obsessed Tracey tries to navigate life as a virgin with a super religious family. The show only has two seasons, with the possibility of more in the future (we're looking at you Netflix), and at 20 minutes an episode take your time enjoying this one.


6. Can't Cope, Won't Cope (Netflix)

Can't Cope, Won't Cope is a new Irish classic that's got a second series due to be released later this year. Two Cork women in their mid-twenties are trying to navigate life in Dublin and in Coppers but the ups and downs of life prove too much to handle for the characters. Full of charm, relatability and laughs, the story of Aisling and Danielle is one all twenty-somethings can all relate to and it's the perfect thing to sit down and watch with your BFF.

Have you any recommendations for us while we wait for season two of Derry Girls?
