The second season of The Young Offenders hasn't even ended yet but we already know that there's going to be plenty more Conor and Jock in our lives.

It was confirmed on Friday morning that The Young Offenders would be returning for a third season.

The second season of the hit show, which is primarily filmed in Cork, hit our screens earlier this month - first on BBC Three and then on RTÉ 2.

And after teasing some "emotional" news on social media, the producers of The Young Offenders confirmed the rumours that there would indeed be another season to look forward to.

The current season is focusing on Jock's preparation for fatherhood while Conor attempts to come to grips with young love.

The reception to the new episodes of the hilarious comedy have been overwhelmingly positive, with some suggesting that it is already on par with iconic Irish comedy Father Ted.

Conor and Jock, played by Alex Murphy and Chris Walley respectively, first appeared on our screens all the way back in 2016, when the Young Offenders movie was released to critical acclaim and commercial success, before a six-part television season was commissioned. Episodes of the first season also appeared on BBC Three and RTÉ 2.
