Netflix Pulls ‘Derry Girls’ Season 2 From U.K. Service Following Rights Mix-Up
Netflix has pulled the second season of Channel 4’s hit comedy “Derry Girls” from its service in the U.K. and Ireland, noting it was too early in rolling out the show.

On Tuesday, the SVOD issued a rare statement on Twitter, highlighting that it was “a bit early” in launching season two on July 9.

Variety has confirmed with a spokesperson for Hat Trick that the streaming giant removed the show because it does not have rights to the program in the U.K. until season three premieres. Given season three’s planned spring/summer shoot has been halted due to Covid-19, it could be at least another year before the second season returns to Netflix.

It’s understood, however, that both seasons of the show are still available in their entirety to global audiences outside of the U.K.

Update: it looks like we were a bit early
