The Hulu/BBC follow-up to 'Normal People' has dropped a handful of pictures from set.
Sally Rooney's 'Conversations With Friends' will be released this spring, and for the first time we've been given a glimpse of what to expect from the young adult drama series.
Based on Rooney's acclaimed first novel of the same name, the story is about the intricate relationships between four people: Frances, the main character, played by Alison Oliver; Bobbi, her best friend and also former girlfriend, played by Sasha Lane; and married couple Melissa and Nick, played by Jemima Kirke and Joe Alwyn.
Vanity Fair had an exclusive first-look at the series, releasing a handful of new pictures from the set of the series.
Director Lenny Abrahamson, who helmed the first half of 'Normal People' (which catapulted Paul Mescal and Daisy Edgar-Jones into the spotlight) is back once again for this 12-episode follow-up series. Abrahamson said to the publication: "What we’ve ended up with is something that has a kind of aesthetic family resemblance to the other series but is definitely its own thing.
"I don’t think anybody could have predicted, in our world of streamers, that it would’ve gone quite as brilliantly as it did in terms of people’s response, and it was really gratifying."
'Conversations With Friends' began filming in April last year and was filmed in various locations around Ireland, Northern Ireland and other currently unknown locations - in the book, the characters go on a holiday together to France.
Executive producer for Element Pictures, Ed Guiney, said that this show will have a different feel to what's come before it: "There’ll be a different response to 'Conversations With Friends', because it’s a different kind of show."
Will there be another Liveline controversy? Let's hope so.
'Conversations With Friends' will begin in BBC Three and Hulu this spring. RTÉ will also air the drama series.
