We made that stat up, but really, you’d be hard-pressed to find a single person who’s read Rooney’s award-winning novel and wasn’t immediately captivated by the searingly honest romance of Irish teenagers Connell and Marianne.
Now, Normal People the TV series is coming to the small screen and, like you, we have a lot of questions.
From where to watch Normal People in Australia to the cast and release date, here’s everything you need to know about the TV adaption of Normal People.
You can watch the trailer for Normal People below. Post continues after video.

For those who haven’t read Normal People, it’s the second novel from Irish author Sally Rooney, whose 2017 debut Conversations With Friends earned her the title of “the first great millennial novelist”.
Flitting between both main characters’ perspectives, Normal People tells the story of two Irish young people, Marianne and Connell, from completely different families, upbringings and social classes who can’t seem to stay away from one another, no matter how many years pass.
The recount of their on-again-off-again relationship is honest, gritty and romantic. And sexy.
Daisy Edgar-Jones as Marianne.
