Goosebumps! BBC just released a teaser trailer for Normal People

The bestselling book (deservingly) became a staple in tote bags/Instagram feeds after its 2018 release, so appearing onscreen always felt like the logical next step. Connell is popular; Marianne is awkward and disliked by most of their peers.

Normal People will air on Hulu in the U.S. and BBC Three in the UK, Spring 2020. "The film and TV industry here is full of talented and committed people who can stand shoulder to shoulder with the best in the world".

Who plays Marianne in Normal People?

The 12-part series is made by Ireland's Element Pictures and centers on the sporadic and complicated relationship of two friends and lovers from a small town in the west of Ireland.

Normal People will premiere in the spring on BBC Three, the BBC's online youth channel. Lenny Abrahamson and Hettie McDonald directed the series, with Abrahamson directing the first six episodes and McDonald directing the final six. "It was a thrill to read it ahead of publication, and see how she has started to adapt this story of millennial angst for BBC Three".

Normal People follows the story of their relationship and them growing up as adults. She told EW past year as production on the series was gearing up, "I'm still fond of these characters, and that's a good thing, because I'm having to spend a lot of time with them again!" Abrahamson, who accompanied the executive producer Ed Guiney and actors Paul Mescal and Daisy Edgar-Jones Rooney on the podium, said the key to unlocking the novel's resonance on the screen is understanding how much you do can learn about someone from their movement, reactions and general demeanor - not everything has to be said.

"You meet anyone in the street and also you communicate to them for 30 seconds, and also you get a way of who they're", Abrahamson mentioned.

Normal People will air in 2020.
