BBC Three has announced The Young Offenders will return for a third series.
The Young Offenders tells the story of loveable tearaways Conor (Alex Murphy) and Jock (Chris Walley) growing up in Cork, Ireland, under the watchful eye of their mother Mairéad (Hilary Rose), who tries to keep them in line.
Created by Peter Foott, Conor and Jock are best friends trying to survive their awkward teenage years and find their place in the world when they are expelled from school.
Jock has recently become a father, introducing baby Star into the unconventional family, and the pair are both excited yet underprepared to support a newborn.
“Jock almost has a new best friend in his baby girl Star,” remarked Alex Murphy. “I think there could be a bit of rivalry between Conor and Star for the love of Jock!”
Chris Walley said: I think we’ll look back at this year and just remember it so well - it’s definitely the weirdest year of my life anyway, in terms of what's going on.
“So it's really nice to have something coming out at this time and (I’m) hoping it’ll bring some sort of joy to households.”
The Young Offenders will be available on BBC Three from Sunday 19th July and will air on BBC One on Fridays at 9:30pm from Friday 24th July.
