Normal People producer Ed Guiney spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about the possibility of a second season of the show.

He told them, "We're not thinking about a second season at the moment.

"Maybe in the future at some point in time. What we are doing is the same team are adapting Conversations with Friends, which is Sally's first book. Obviously it is a cousin of Normal People in a way, but it's also quite different.

"It feels like we tell a very complete story about these characters' lives, and so it's not something we're moving to do. Maybe there's a version of it down the line."

Kourtney Kardashian was just one of the fans of the show calling for a second season. The reality star shared an Instagram story with her mammoth following of 92 million which shows her watching an episode of the show along with the words 'need a series two of Normal People' as well as the 'mind-blown' and 'heartbreak' emojis.

Meanwhile, director Lenny Abrahamson said in an interview he did with Radio Times, "I have a fantasy of doing a kind of ten year seeing where they are in ten years time sort of thing, if I’m not too decrepit at that point."

While Paul Mescal said in an interview with NME, "Series one is the book. But we don’t know what’s on the other side. The great thing about these two characters is that their lives continue."

The TV adaption of the Sally Rooney novel has taken the country by storm and has garnered fans from all over the world.

Some behind-the-scenes photos of this weeks episode, due to air on RTÉ One on Tuesday night, reveals details of the heartbreaking developments in the penultimate episode of the series.
