The hit comedy will return to Irish TV screens on Friday July 24th on RTÉ One and also on BBC One.
The Young Offenders creator, Peter Foott, said: “We are so happy that series 3 is getting to screens a little earlier than we thought it might.
Given that it has been a very difficult time for so many over the last few months, we hope that series 3 will bring a smile to our audiences faces when it’s most needed.
The whole team are really excited to have everyone see the new series, it was a labour of love for all our amazing cast and crew.
We’re also delighted that it will be moving to RTÉ 1 at 9.35pm on Fridays. We really hope viewers enjoy this third series which we are very proud of.”
The Young Offenders tells the coming of age adventures of Conor (Alex Murphy) & Jock (Chris Walley) and their mother/guardian Mairéad (Hilary Rose) as she tries to keep them on the straight and narrow.
Set in Cork, Season 3 sees the best friends continue to navigate their awkward teenage years as they hatch plans to help distract from their tough home lives, work on sustaining their relationships and try to care for the newest family member, baby Star.
The Young Offenders was one of the top overall shows for BBC Three last year with the first two series plus last year’s Christmas special now amassing over 25 million requests on iPlayer.
We can’t wait boi!
