The first season of The Young Offenders television series was a massive success. Co-produced by the BBC with RTÉ, it carried on the acclaim that was lavished on the 2016 eponymous film that debuted the two beloved characters Conor and Jock.
If you're a fan of the show and have thought while watching "I could blend into the background of that scene", here's your opportunity. It's not every day you get the chance to star in one of your favourite Irish television series but thanks to the masterminds behind The Young Offenders you're getting that chance. They are currently seeking submissions from Cork locals as extras for the new series for several weeks from the end of May 2019 in Cork.
