Hulu Unveils “Normal People”, Sets Premiere Date

Daisy Edgar-Jones and Paul Mescal in "Normal People"

Hulu has unveiled the first trailer for its upcoming series, Normal People.

The series is based on the celebrated 2019 Sally Rooney novel of the same name. The clip is the first look at Marianne (Daisy Edgar-Jones) and Connell (Paul Mescal). 

Here’s the official synopsis from the streamer: “Normal People tracks the tender but complicated relationship of Marianne and Connell from the end of their school days in a small-town west of Ireland to their undergraduate years at Trinity College. At school, he’s well-liked and popular, while she’s lonely, proud and intimidating. But when Connell comes to pick up his mother from her cleaning job at Marianne’s house, a strange and indelible connection grows between the two teenagers — one they are determined to conceal. A year later, they’re both studying in Dublin and Marianne has found her feet in a new social world but Connell hangs at the side lines, shy and uncertain. Honest, smart and intoxicating, Normal People sees the pair weave in and out of each other’s lives and explores just how complicated intimacy and young love can be.”
