“Conversations with Friends ss 2”: release date, announcement
The continuation of the drama TV show “Conversations with Friends” has not been officially announced. Despite the fact that the picture was announced as a mini-series even before its premiere, the success of the season 1 may well influence the decision of the producers to extend the project for the season 2. In this case, the premiere of new episodes will most likely take place closer to the spring of 2023. It remains only to settle the issue with the author of the novel, which became the basis for the TV series.
Recall that the picture is the eponymous adaptation of the book by Sally Rooney, released in 2017. The novel is Sally’s writing debut and became an instant best-seller, making 26-year-old Rooney famous in an instant. Perhaps the writer is already working on the next part of the story, but at present there is no reliable information about the 2nd season. We continue to follow the news.
While still schoolgirls, Bobbi and Frances entered into a sexual relationship. Time passed, the girls cooled off to each other, but still spent time together. By enrolling in Trinity College Dublin, they had a chance to start a life without parental care, and they took advantage of it. Recently, Frances was offered a boring job, but she did not despair, because the girl had another way to earn money.
Frances wrote the lyrics, which she and Bobbi successfully presented on stage. At one of the local parties, they happened to meet a married couple, Melissa and Nick. They were incredibly happy with new acquaintances and their communication quickly grew into a friendly one. Melissa was known as a successful writer, which was only a gift for young girls. But soon the situation was confused by Nick.
The guy started showing signs of attention to Frances. Hoping to taste the forbidden fruit, she began to reciprocate. The girl never entered into physical intimacy with a man and considered this experience necessary, even with a married man. Soon Frances becomes aware that Bobbi decided to make Melissa fall in love with her and made every effort for this — a friend herself told about it.
Throughout the 12 episodes of the season 1, viewers watch relationships that have no end or beginning. A thousand times they converge with each other and diverge. When the moment comes to correct her sins and apologize to Bobbi, who has been in limbo all this time, Frances shows her worst side, and the relationship between the two friends is broken.
Only sincere despair and the revival of former feelings make the friends reconcile and become loved for each other again. But at the last moment, Frances receives a call from Nick, who wants to meet her again. To the surprise of the viewer, who has already decided that the girl has realized her mistakes, Frances again agrees to a meeting. Obviously, the season 2 will appear very soon and Frances may lose her only and beloved friend forever…
Actors and their roles
- Frances — a young girl, confused in feelings; had an affair with a married man and could not stop until the closest people turned away from her; loves her parents, but because of her secrecy, she cannot be completely honest with them; is bisexual; her first sexual experience was with her friend Bobb — Alison Oliver.
- Bobbi — a charming, brave, daring girl; not afraid to look stupid; defends her interests with confidence and always stands up for friends; turns out to be betrayed by a loved one — Sasha Lane.
- Melissa — a famous writer who, at the end of season 1, finds out about her husband’s infidelities; at first, she helps the girls, believing that she is dealing with naive students; Melissa reciprocates Bobbi and, blinded by new emotions, for some time does not understand that her husband started an affair on the side — Jemima Kirke.
- Nick — an actor, a boring and depressed guy; for him, the world changes when Frances appears nearby, but everything quickly collapses when he tells her about his intimate relationship with his wife at the moment when he began a relationship with Frances — Joe Alwyn.
- The filmmakers paid attention to the first novel called “Conversations with Friends” by the young writer Sally Rooney only after the release of the TV series “Normal People” — an adaptation of her second book of the same name. As a result, the same creative team took over the shooting of the 12-episode film “Conversations with Friends”: director Lenny Abrahamson and screenwriter Alice Birch.
- On May 15, 2022, under the direction of Lenny Abrahamson and Alice Birch, the first episode appeared, from which the audience expected colossal emotions. As a result, critics gave the TV show a description of the “teenage soap opera”, and on IMDB received a mark of 6.8 points. However, there are persistent rumors about season 2, as the season 1 finale made it clear that Frances’ relationship was not over yet.
- For Alison Oliver, the project became a debut — she had never had to act in sex scenes before, but the dream of becoming an actress allowed her to liberate herself in the frame. Not a single understudy was invited to participate in explicit scenes, since all the actors skillfully showed their talent, were not shy of the camera and felt free in front of their colleagues.
