In terms of its release date, The Young Offenders couldn't have picked a better time to come back because we all needed a good laugh following the events of 2020 but as soon as the show ended, fans were wondering about The Young Offenders Season 4?
Throughout the series, we got to see plenty of memorable moments as the gang enjoyed one hell of a Debs, Jock struggled to get to grips with being a parent, and as for Mairead, well, she just lost the plot completely - we loved that cursing montage when she just went mad!
Aside from this, there were also some heart-wrenching moments too, like Billy Murphy's entire story arc in the final episode, and Mairead being absolutely crushed after realising the truth about the lads stealing bikes.
After a hit film and three seasons of the beloved show, fans of The Young Offenders might be wondering if a fourth season is in the works?
While nothing official has been confirmed, during an interview with Off The Ball, Chris Walley (Jock) was enthusiastic when asked if there are plans for The Young Offenders Season 4.
"I think we all love spending time with each other and we all love working together. If there's a story to be told then maybe we shall tell it. At the moment, I just don't think we know that yet, but would I want to spend time with everyone again? Absolutely."
Walley isn't the only member of the cast that thinks there's potential for another season.
During a recent interview on Virgin Media's The Six O'Clock Show, Shane Casey (Billy Murphy) was coy when asked about the potential of The Young Offenders Season 4.
"I think the official line is that I can't say anything about that, you know the usual line. To be honest with you, I don't think there has been discussions about that as of yet. I don't know anything about that. I'm sure there's probably potential for that. At this stage, Billy Murphy is like a comfortable pair of shoes for me. I really enjoy doing it and I'd be sad to see it go, but who knows? Let's wait and see."
Aside from all the talk about The Young Offenders Season 4, lots of people also want Casey's beloved character to be given his own show.
When asked about the rumours of a Billy Murphy spin-off, Casey said that he has heard them and while it's unlikely to happen, he's not against the idea of a standalone show for Cork's most beloved psychopath.
"I have heard that rumour too and it's a beautiful rumour, but I think that's all it is. It's flattering but to be honest with you, we have a great team and if I was coming back, I'd want the whole team there. Peter (writer/creator) is off doing a show with Disney at the moment. Chris (Jock) and Alex (Conor) are young men and they want to go out and try new things, Hilary (Mairead) has a few projects going but I wouldn't be against the idea, I'll put it that way."
Truth be told, we'd love to see the gang back for The Young Offenders Season 4 if that ever happens.
