CONFIRMED: The Young Offenders To Return For Third Season

We haven't even seen the full second season yet but the third series of The Young Offenders has been confirmed.

RTE are playing out the new episodes every Monday but the full series has already aired on BBC Three. The second batch of episodes set a record week of viewing on the BBC Three iPlayer and therefore has earned Conor and Jock a third series of the Cork-based show.

The Young Offenders gained popularity first as a movie based around two Cork teenagers who travel to West Cork to find a missing bail of cocaine worth €7 million and subsequently was commissioned for a series by BBC and RTE following the adventures of the two bike thieves.

Series two has so fair earned an average viewership of 370,100 on RTE and is going down a storm with fans.
