Sally Rooney fans, get ready, because Hulu's second limited-series adaptation of the Irish author's work is here. The creative minds behind the critically acclaimed Normal People reunited to bring Rooney's debut novel, Conversations With Friends, to the small screen. Told over 12 episodes, Conversations With Friends is now streaming in its entirety on Hulu.
Set in Dublin, Conversations With Friends follows 21-year-old college student Frances and her former girlfriend and current best friend, Bobbi, as they navigate a complex new relationship with a married couple.
Like Sally Rooney’s other works, Conversations With Friends is an intimate character study of complicated individuals, and the ways in which they communicate with one another. Alison Oliver, Joe Alwyn, Sasha Lane and Jemima Kirke star in this new Hulu original series.
Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch Conversations With Friends online.

How to Watch Conversations With Friends for Free on Hulu
If you're a new user, you can try any tier of Hulu free for 30 days. This means you can watch each episode of Conversations With Friends ad-free during that month-long trial before your subscription fee begins.
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.
