Normal People is an Irish romantic series that beautifully depicts the complexities of teenage relationships. The show is set small Irish coastal town where the two main high school protagonists overcome their personal problems and failed hopes in the relationship.
The show has a huge fan base with only one season in hand, it has also received 8.5 IMDb which makes this show worth watching for everyone. After the show’s first season, fans are now asking questions about the show’s second season. The series is actually based on the novel of the same name written by Sally Rooney.
However, we have received overwhelming response from the lead actors regarding their anticipation of returning to work as Marianne and Connell. The show’s creators have also hinted at us that there could be a second season for the show, but it will take a long time to develop a well-written script to do the first season justice. So, we still have hope for a series update but we will definitely have to wait a long time for it.
Normal People Season 1 Recap
The show mainly starts with Connell and Marianne’s final high school years where they slowly become close and end up having a secret relationship with each other. However, Marianne’s social status has started to affect the relationship, even though they are trying their best to resolve it.
Teen love seems quite difficult for both of them. Soon we see a breaking point for both of them. Connell’s popular and successful social status did not help Marianne as she was constantly bullied and eventually withdrew from school due to the emotional turmoil she was going through.
After entering college, they had their own personal struggles regarding their family along with social circles, and with more efforts needed on Connell’s part, it became difficult for him to adjust again.
Soon they again grew apart due to their personal issues and Marianne moved overseas, making it difficult for both of them. But, through all the struggles they ended up sticking to each other trying to be a constant support towards the end of the season. We see these two united in a trinity but there is always a chance for them to grow apart and end things like the previous years. Though we all wish they were together because they sure look super cute and fashionable together throughout the series.
