Since Sally Rooney’s Ordinary People was made for TV, we have been waiting for a new series that has the same vibe. We can’t help but wonder what we can say. It seems that we love to make ourselves miserable.
One of Rooney’s novels is now available for streaming on Amazon Prime. Conversations with Friends: Everything you need to know
What’s Conversations with Friends all about?
Conversations with Friends is similar to Normal People. It takes place in Ireland and follows the lives and struggles of complicated, but often very annoying, young women aged 20 and over.
The series and novel follow Frances (Alison Oliver), 21-year-old college student, and her ex-girlfriend and best friend Bobbi (Sasha Lane). The two were inseparable years before their split and they continue to perform spoken word poetry in Dublin, despite having been apart for many years.
Melissa (Jemima Krke), an older writer, meets them at one of their shows. Frances and Bobbi start to spend time together with Melissa (Joe Alwyn), who is a reserved but handsome actor.
As you can see, just like every other Sally Rooney moment in which the characters make mistakes and miscommunications, we want to cringe. We love following them like Marianne and Connell in Normal People.
When will Conversations With Friends premier?
Conversations with Friends has ended all its episodes since May 16, 2022. We probably didn’t like dropping it all on Monday, but the episodes only last about 30 minutes so you’ll be able to binge it as soon as possible.
Where can I watch Conversations With Friends?
Hulu Original and BBC Three series, Conversations with Friends, was acquired by Amazon Prime Video, a local Australian provider.
