Here’s When And Where You Can Watch Sally Rooney’s Normal People TV Series
It couldn't have come at a better time
We’ve been waiting for what feels like an eternity for it to come, but alas, the highly anticipated on-screen adaption of Sally Rooney’s ‘Normal People’ has finally landed, and it couldn’t have come at a better time.
The 12-part series has been in the making for quite some time, with it being first announced last summer that a show was on the way.
But, the time has finally come, with the first two episodes landing on BBC next Monday, the 27th of April at 9pm. Irish channel, RTE will also be showing the series, with the pilot episode airing the following night, on Tuesday the 28th of April, they will also follow suit with the BBC and show a double episode.
If you do miss the initial screening, don’t worry, you can catch up on both the BBC and RTE player afterward.
If you’re familiar with the book but not with the series, the show has been adapted to stay true to the book, with it being comprised of 12 thirty-minute episodes.
Filming took place in both Dublin, Sligo and abroad, meaning viewers can see one of their favourite books come to life, exactly as is in the novel.
While Sally Rooney wrote the script, it was directed by Lenny Abraham (also responsible for Room, and Frank) so, Sally herself has said that she is confident in the series.
The character of Connell will be played by Irish actor Paul Mescal, and on-off love interest will be played by Cold Feet actress Daisy Edgar-Jones.
Having had a sneak peek at the trailer, it seems as though we’re in for a real treat. T minus 6 days to go!
