The Young Offenders follows the coming of age adventures of lovable rogues Conor and Jock as they navigate their awkward teenage years, hatching plans and adventures to help distract from their tough home lives and their inability to stay out of trouble at school.

The show is based on the 2016 film of the same name, with Alex Murphy and Chris Walley reprising their roles.

Conor's long suffering mother Mairead tries to keep both her son and his best friend on the straight and narrow, with varying degrees of success. Friendship, loyalty, laughter and lots of mischief bring best pals Conor and Jock into conflict with their headmaster, leaving Conor's mum to pick up the pieces. To add fuel to the fire, the lads strike up friendships with the headmaster's daughters.
