Normal People has secured a DVD release date, and you’ll be able to take home the acclaimed drama series for yourself from November 2.
The BBC and Hulu series was a massive hit when it first aired in April this year – and whether you loved it the first time round and want to be able to binge it whenever you want, or you’re yet to discover the love story, you can now pre-order the DVD in the UK and Ireland to help ease you into winter.
Normal People is based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Sally Rooney and tells the story of Marianne (Daisy Edgar-Jones) and Connell (Paul Mescal) as they navigate the intricacies of a romantic relationship.
Beginning with their late school days in a small Irish town and following them into their university years at Trinity College Dublin, the couple’s romance takes a number of twists and turns across 12 episodes and their love story reveals just how entwined two people’s lives can become.
The Emmy-nominated show is directed by Oscar-nominated director Lenny Abrahamson, who also directed Room, and Doctor Who director Hettie Macdonald. The DVD also contains additional treats in the form of previously unseen exclusive extras, including deleted scenes, a series featurette, an extended interview with the lead cast and Daisy and Paul’s audition tape.
You can pre-order the DVD now at retailers including Amazon, so it’ll be delivered to your home ready for the release date on November 2.
While many fans have called for a second season of the show actor Mescal has claimed that he doesn’t think it will continue, saying: “I do feel like the series that has finished is its own thing, and I’m totally comfortable with that.
“[Season two] is not on the cards at the moment, but if I got the opportunity to play him again, amazing.”
However the book’s author Rooney will be teaming up with the BBC again for another adaptation, this time of her first novel Conversations with Friends.
No release date has yet been confirmed for the new adaptation, but you can at least get in some more viewings of Normal People first.
