The Young Offenders
Hit Irish comedy The Young Offenders from Vico Films has been recommissioned by the BBC for broadcast on BBC One, in association with RTÉ for broadcast on RTÉ One.

This series, which will also be available on the BBC & RTE Players, follows on from the hugely successful TV series, the 2018 Christmas special, which aired for the first time on BBC One, and the box office hit feature film from 2016.

“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,” said Young Offenders creator, Peter Foott. “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.” 

Series 2 and 3 filmed back-to-back in 2019 and proved massive draws for audiences, not only in Ireland and the UK, but across the world, with the show garnered critical acclaim for its sensitive yet hilarious story-telling and performances.

Ben Caudell, Commissioning Editor for BBC Comedy, added: “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.”

Head of RTÉ Comedy, Justin Healy said: “The Young Offenders is a firm favourite with RTÉ audiences and we are delighted to be bringing it back to screen. It’s exciting to be working with the BBC once again to bring Irish talent to an international audience.”

The Young Offenders has been commissioned for the BBC by Jon Petrie, Director of Comedy Commissioning and the Commissioning Editor for the BBC is Ben Caudell.  The Series Producers for Vico Films are Peter Foott and Cormac Fox, alongside Executive Producers Lotte Beasley, Abby Singer, and Michael Doherty.  Commissioning Editor for RTÉ Comedy is Justin Healy. The Director for series 4 is Jamie Jay Johnson.
