The first image from The Young Offenders Christmas special has been released.
Alex Murphy, Chris Walley and Hilary Rose will all return for the episode, and will be joined by special guest Robert Sheehan.
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 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 make her wish come true and in the process find out something about themselves and the value of empathy.
An exact air date has yet to be announced but the Christmas Special will premiere in December and follows on from hugely successful BBC series and smash hit feature film of the same name.
