The Young Offenders Christmas Special Confirmed for RTÉ
26 Nov 2018 : News Desk
RTÉ & BBC Three have confirmed that a one-off Christmas special for ‘The Young Offenders’ will air this December.

It was revealed that filming for ‘The Young Offenders Christmas Special’ wrapped in Cork back in October and will feature a guest appearance from Robert Sheehan (‘Love/Hate’, ‘Mortal Engines’).

Produced by Vico Films, the special is written, directed and executive produced by creator Peter Foott (‘Republic of Telly’) and produced by Martina Niland (‘Once’, ‘Sing Street’). 

The special will follow on from the hugely successful TV series, which features Alex Murphy and Chris Walley as loveable rogues Conor and Jock, and Hilary Rose as Conor’s mam Mairead. The show averaged an audience of 401,000 during its TX run on RTÉ, and proved hugely popular with younger viewers: 36% of 15-34 year olds tuned in every Thursday night on RTÉ2.

‘The Young Offenders’ originally came to prominence back in 2016 when it earned €1.3 million at the Irish box office along with eight IFTA nominations including an award for ‘Best Script – Film’ at the 2017 IFTA Film & Drama Awards. The debut TV series also earned critical acclaim winning two IFTA Television Awards and earning a further four nominations at the ceremony back in May.

‘The Young Offenders’ is commissioned for BBC Three and BBC Comedy in association with RTÉ.

An exact December TX date for the special has not yet been announced.
