Normal People is coming back, we repeat Normal People is coming back!!
We loved Sally Rooney’s Normal People, and whilst Season 2 is yet to be confirmed, we will be seeing Connell and Marianne again soon.
Here’s What We Know So Far
Yep, Normal People will return for 2 specials as part of the RTÉ Does Comic Relief. The episodes will be set a few years ahead of where we last left Connell and Marianne.
Richard Curtis, the co-founder of Comic Relief recently confirmed the news. Richard added that Paul Mescal and Daisy Edgar-Jones will be reprising their roles as Connell and Marianne! Curtis told RTÉ Radio 1:
“There’s a beautiful piece called Normal Older People, which is imagining what would have happened to Marianne and Connell 40 years from now. I promise you, these are two very special bits. It’s so much better than anything we’ve ever made. I mean I can’t even say all about it because there’s a guest star in it. But it’s really, it’s really beautiful. One of the things about Comic Relief is it just gives opportunities for things to happen that would never happen. I can’t imagine any context in which they would have allowed this little sort of extra-special into the world of Normal People.”
We’re super excited for the return of Normal People, and all for a great cause!
RTÉ Does Comic Relief airs on RTÉ One on Friday, June 26th, from 8pm to 11.30pm
