The Young Offenders has already been commissioned for a second series by BBC Three.

The popular movie-turned-TV series follows Conor (Alex Murphy) and Jock (Chris Walley) as they navigate their awkward teenage years, hatching plans to help distract from their tough lives at home, and their inability to stay out of trouble at school.

The show’s creator Peter Foott told RTÉ Entertainment, “The response already to the show has been phenomenal, myself and the whole team have been blown away by it.

“To have BBC Three commission a second series so quickly is a dream come true, their support for the project has been unwavering from the start.”

“This level of commitment is incredibly reassuring, and we’re keen to continue telling stories involving these characters. We’re very grateful to the BBC for allowing us to do so.”

A spokesperson for RTÉ also said, “RTÉ is happy to have the opportunity of working with Vico and BBC Three again on a second series of The Young Offenders.”

The show will premiere tonight, Thursday 8 February, at 9.30pm on RTÉ2.
