Derry Girls creator Lisa McGee has suggested that a film could be in the works for the series.
The Channel 4 show, which has had the filming of its third series disrupted due to the coronavirus, has proved a critical hit with its first two seasons.
“For a while, I was kind of like, I dunno, will it work?" McGee told Ray D'Arcy on his RTÉ show. "But now an idea is starting to vaguely form in my head.
“After series three I’ll think about that a bit more I’d like to do it, and I think the girls would like to do it. The cast even, some of them are men and boys.
“I think that would sort of be the long term plan. We should have been shooting it now but it has been pushed back and we are trying to wait until it is safe.”
The show attracted attention recently when series two of the hit comedy was made available on Netflix, only to be taken down a few days later due to a licensing issue.
"It looks like we were a bit early with this one so have had to take season two down for now,” the streaming service shared on Twitter.
UPDATE: it looks like we were a bit early with this one so have had to take season two down for now. We'll let you know when it's coming back as soon as we can. In the meantime, it's available now on All 4. https://t.co/UQR5dZvqeb— Netflix UK & Ireland (@NetflixUK) July 14, 2020
Derry Girls was nominated at last year's BAFTA TV Awards for Best Scripted Comedy, with the gong eventually going to Sally4Ever.
Erin star Saoirse-Monica Jackson picked up the accolade for Best Comedy Performance at the 2020 Royal Television Society Awards while its other awards include McGee collecting the prize for Best Comedy Writing on Television at the British Screenwriters' Awards in 2018.
