The last episode of Normal People didn’t give viewers the clear conclusion they were hoping for. Fans of the show came to terms with that because the book ended the same way, but it turns out that the director, Lenny Abrahamson, isn’t opposed to continuing Connell and Marianne’s story.
Abrahamson recently discussed Normal People with Deadline alongside the show’s stars Daisy Edgar-Jones and Paul Mescal. He said there weren’t any concrete discussions about the future of the show, but he wouldn’t mind revisiting this story a few years down the road.
“The book stops where it stops because it feels right. But, I have a sneaking thing in the back of my head that if everybody was willing, and if the stars aligned, I’d love to revisit them in five years and find out what happened, where they are,” explained the Oscar-nominated filmmaker.
We won’t be getting a new season of Normal People anytime soon, but Abrahamson is already on its spiritual successor. He’s set to direct Hulu’s new series Conversations with Friends, based on the novel by Sally Rooney, who also wrote Normal People.
