Will there be another series of Normal People?

It is unknown whether a Normal People season 2 is in the works.

However, the stars of the show certainly haven’t ruled out a second series, with Connell actor Paul Mescal telling NME: “Series one is the book.

“But we don’t know what’s on the other side. The great thing about these two characters is that their lives continue.”

Daisy Edgar-Jones - who plays Marianne - added: “That’s what’s so wonderful about the book. At the end, they’re very much alive and you’re left not knowing where they’re gonna go. It’s upsetting to read, but it’s also quite thrilling and realistic.

“We’ve left the series in a similar way. I think it’s quite interesting to leave it open.”

There is some good news, as another 12-part Sally Rooney BBC adaptation was given the go ahead earlier this year based on her debut novel Conversations with Friends.
