BBC Three’s long-awaited adaptation of Sally Rooney’s novel Normal People now has a confirmed release date.
All 12 episodes of the upcoming drama will be available to watch on BBC Three from Sunday 26th April.
Daisy Edgar-Jones (War Of The Worlds) and newcomer Paul Mescal star as Marianne and Connell, two young lovers who have a complicated on-off relationship spanning across their teenage years in a small town west of Ireland through their student years at Trinity College, Dublin.
The pair begin a secret romance when Connell arrives at Marianne’s house to pick up his mother from her cleaning job there. They are determined to keep their connection concealed, since at school Marianne is an intimidatingly smart loner, while Connell is well-liked and popular.
At Trinity, the tables turn as Marianne thrives in her new social world while Connell falls by the wayside, shy and uncertain.
The series tracks their constantly interweaving lives, exploring the complicated nature of intimacy and young love.
Normal People will be available on BBC Three from 26th April and will air on BBC One at a later date.
