The show has proved hugely popular with Irish audiences.
After having previously been teased over the past couple of weeks, it has today been confirmed that The Young Offenders will be returning to TV screens this December for a one-off Christmas special.
Following on from the hugely successful BBC series and IFTA-winning feature film of the same name, the special was filmed in Cork in October and will air on both BBC Three and RTÉ.
The show is set to feature a guest-starring role from celebrated Irish actor Robert Sheehan, as well as the returning characters of Conor (Alex Murphy), Jock (Chris Walley) and Mairead (Hilary Rose), and will see the trio get up to hospital-based bedlam.
