Sally Rooney's 'Conversations With Friends' to Also Be Adapted For TV Show

Building on the success of BBC’s adaptation of ‘Normal People.’

Long before BBC‘s TV adaptation of Sally Rooney novel Normal People hit Hulu and ignited a firestorm of buzz, news broke that Rooney’s debut book, Conversations With Friends, would also receive a screen-ready treatment. Helmed by the same team behind Normal People – Executive Producer Ed Guiney, Director Lenny Abrahamson and Series Co-Writer Rooney herself — the upcoming adaptation is in the works, even amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

Speaking with Hollywood Reporter, Guiney confirmed the TV show is in development. “Obviously [it] is a cousin of Normal People in a way, but it’s also quite different…Lenny’s going to direct the opening episodes of that again, and that’s very exciting and a lovely thing to be working on during the lockdown,” he said. Though Conversations With Friends differs in many ways from Normal People, the plot also revolves around two romantically involved college students, this time in Frances and Bobbi.

It remains to be seen when exactly the adaptation will hit screens. In the meantime though, Guiney has squashed rumors surrounding a second season of Normal People. “We’re not thinking about a second season at the moment,” he said. “Maybe in the future at some point in time.”
