We're all in desperate need of a laugh right now (the third lockdown is really starting to get to us) - and luckily, there may well be some good news on the horizon.
Speaking to her.ie, the 34-year-old explained that while they cannot currently film the next chapter of the schoolgirls' exploits, there's plenty to look forward to.
"We can't do anything involving a crowd right now, so logistically, it's really tough. But I spoke to Lisa McGee recently and she talked me through the storylines," she said.
"They're so brilliant, which doesn't surprise me - she's just incredible - but it made me want to do it right now. "
Eek, we're so excited to find out what Erin, Orla, Clare, Michelle and James have been up to.

The hilarious sitcom follows Erin (Saoirse-Monica Jackson), her cousin Orla (Louisa Harland), their friends Michelle (Jamie-Lee O'Donnell) and Clare (Nicola Coughlan), and Michelle's English cousin James (Dylan Llewellyn) as they navigate their teenage years during the end of the early 1990s 'Troubles' in Derry
And a new season might not be the only Derry Girls on the horizon, either. Last summer, creator Lisa McGee revealed they could be starting work on a movie pretty soon, too.
Speaking to The Irish Mirror she said: "For a while, I was kind of like, I dunno, will it work?
"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 [series 3] now but it has been pushed back and we are trying to wait until it is safe.
"But now an idea is starting to vaguely form in my head."
This is so exciting. Derry Girls fans, it seems there's lots to look forward to!
