Creator and showrunner Peter Foott says “We’re so excited to be bringing all of the team back for the new series of The Young Offenders.  We’ve been able to change things up a little bit this time around, but the show is still true to its roots, we wanted to give the fans the same mix of funny storylines that are also heartfelt, so it’s very much the same show with all cast returning.  Everyone involved is delighted with series four, and we can’t wait for people to see it and be back in the world of The Young Offenders.”

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