Is Conversations With Friends a sequel to Normal People?

While the two limited series are based on works by the same author, and both concern undergrads in Ireland, the storylines and characters of Normal People and Conversations With Friends do not overlap.

"Obviously [it] is a cousin of Normal People in a way, but it's also quite different." Ed Guiney, who served as an executive producer on both projects, told The Hollywood Reporter.

At least Sally Rooney fans will have this sort-of crossover to enjoy: Conversations With Friends features a new song by Phoebe Bridgers, long-time girlfriend to Normal People star Paul Mescal.
