The Young Offenders Christmas Special With Robert Sheehan Finally Has An Air Date

Kiara Keane

People all over the country were delighted to find out that The Young Offenders would be back on their screens a lot sooner that expected with a Christmas special.

It was announced last month that the hit show had already finished filming the special episode with Robert Sheehan and that it would be airing some time this month on RTÉ and the BBC.

It’s now been confirmed that BBC Three will be showing it first this Friday evening (December 14), followed by BBC One on December 23.

RTÉ One will be airing the episode on Christmas day to really get you into the festive spirit.

The official synopsis reads, ‘It’s Christmas week, and the residents of the estate where Conor, Jock and Mairead live have been fighting off an eviction from the council for over a month.

‘The residents have created a barricade to show their determination that they won’t be moved to make way for the estate to be renovated.

‘While all this is happening, Mairead has been sick for weeks and has to be taken to the hospital. The situation proves to be more serious than thought and not knowing how to help, the lads ask Mairead if there’s anything they can get her.

‘The two friends set off on a chaotic adventure to try to make her wish come true and in the process find out something about themselves and the value of empathy.’

Sounds like it’s gonna be well worth staying in for this Friday.
