Conversations with Friends stars share pictures from set

We're getting excited now.

It seems like every single person on the island of Ireland is obsessed with Sally Rooney, and if you're not, you were at least hooked on Normal People.

With the huge success of the show, it's no surprise that her other novel Conversations With Friends is also being adapted for the small screen.

With another 12 part BBC series on the way, filming is set to get underway in Dublin, Belfast and other international locations.

Co-producer Ed Guiney revealed that the series was being created back in May of 2020, after the success of Normal People and while he didn't say if there will be a second season of the hit show, he gave a lot away about Conversations with Friends.

And following in his footsteps, the cast has given us even more of a glimpse into what we can expect from the new series, posting snaps from the set.

Joe Alwyn, who's playing Nick, shared our first glimpse from set this week. He simply wrote "cwf" along with a series of photos from the set and some camera emojis.

She wrote, "Bye bye Belfast. You are unapologetic and resilient. Bold belly laughs through brutally grey days."

Speaking about the new adaptation, Ed Guiney said: "I love Conversations with Friends, its depth, humour and freshness, and it’s an honour to be involved in bringing it to the screen."

Newcomer Alison Oliver is set to play Frances, while American Honey star Sasha Lane is playing Bobbi.

While no release date has been given yet, it can't be too far away as filming has so clearly already kicked off.
