The Young Offenders will return for a fourth series with a release date now confirmed.

Created by Peter Foott, The Young Offenders tells the coming-of-age adventures of loveable rogues Conor and Jock and their mother/guardian Mairéad as she tries to keep them on the straight and narrow.

Originally starting as a feature film in 2016, the TV show last aired new episodes in 2020.

Now it’s been officially confirmed that a fourth series will start on Friday, 10 May at 9:30PM on BBC One.

All six episodes of the new series will also be released to stream the same date via BBC iPlayer.

Ben Caudell, Commissioning Editor for BBC Comedy said: “We’re so happy to have The Young Offenders back on BBC One and BBC iPlayer, so that viewers once again enjoy the adventures, and misadventures, of all these brilliant comic characters – they may not be quite so young, but they’re still very much offenders.”

Peter Foott, creator of The Young Offenders added: “We’re over the moon to have been commissioned for Series 4 of the show on BBC One, and of course always grateful for the ongoing support of RTÉ.

“Audiences have been asking for more of the journeys of these characters and we’re very excited to take the show in new directions for Series 4 and can’t wait to bring it back to TV screens.”

For now, past series of The Young Offenders are available to stream on BBC iPlayer here.
