The Young Offenders season 3 release date and cast from BBC series

Season 3 of The Young Offenders arrives on the BBC this month (July)


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.

Set in Cork, Ireland, 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.

With Conor and Jock now expelled from school, they must find their way as young adults and learn to support their unconventional family unit.
