Normal People team to adapt more Sally Rooney

Conversations with Friends will be the team's next adaptation.

The production team that worked on Normal People has announced that it will continue to adapt Sally Rooney’s work.

In a recent interview, co-producer Ed Guiney said that Rooney’s other novel, Conversations with Friends would also be adapted into a series.

"Not in the short term. We've turned our attention – we're adapting Conversations with Friends as a television series.

"It's the same basic team," added Guiney. "Lenny's [Abrahamson] going to direct it and is across it as an EP [executive producer]. And Alice Birch and all of us at Element [Pictures]. So, in a way, that's what we'll be turning our attention to next.

"But maybe down the line we'll come back to Connell and Marianne."

Fans have wondered whether Normal People will return for a second season, despite the series being based on a singular novel.

Lenny Abrahamson directed 6 episodes of the series and received an Oscar nomination for 2015’s Room, starring Brie Larson.

Normal People follows two Irish teenagers as they grow up and navigate love and life together.

The series has been a big hit for the BBC, being one of its first big shows to be largely broadcast via streaming.

You can watch all of Normal People now on BBC iPlayer.
