Sally Rooney’s Conversations with Friends is coming to TV
Joined in on the latest TV sensation, Normal People, and are desperate for some more Irish drama? Well get ready, Sally Rooney's Conversations with Friends is being adapted into a TV show. 

Hot off the success of the TV adaptation of Rooney’s Normal People, it was announced her debut novel, Conversations with Friends will be made into a new TV series.

Fans will be happy to hear Normal People’s director Lenny Abrahamson will be taking on the new TV series, with British screenwriter Alice Birch and Rooney herself handling the script.

Conversations with Friends will follow suit with 12 episodes on BBC Three and expected to be released on streaming services.

If you haven’t read Rooney’s debut novel, it follows 21-year-old Frances, an aspiring writer in Dublin. After performing at a spoken word night, she befriends journalist Melissa and her actor-husband Nick. Frances gets drawn into the couple’s glamourous world of elegant dinner parties and holidays in France. When Frances and Nick spark a connection, she is forced to confront a shifting dynamic and her own vulnerabilities.

In a statement on Tatler, Rooney shared her excitement for the project. “I’m confident we’re going to find fresh and interesting ways of dramatising the novel’s dynamics, and I’m excited to watch the process take shape‎.”

Release dates are yet to be announced, though we can expect the show won’t be coming out anytime soon due to COVID-19 delays. In the meantime, you can catch Normal People on TVNZ in New Zealand and Stan in Australia.
