Normal People Season 2 Release Date
Nothing much can be said about the Normal People Season 2 release date. There has been no official announcement regarding the series renewal for season 2 by the producers. Both Hulu and BBC three are quiet on this issue.
Moreover, it has also been said that season 1 has almost covered the novel arc, so what can season 2 bring for us? But as is evident from history, many such declared limited series often got an expansion later, so this can be the case here. If that happens, then Normal People Season 2 can happen, maybe in 2023.

Normal People Season 2 Trailer

Normal People Season 2 Storyline
The Irish series Normal People deals with the complicated relationship of a young girl named ‘Marianne’ and her schoolmate ‘Connell.’ Connell is a brilliant student and a popular athlete at school.
