The official teaser trailer for BBC Three series Conversations With Friends has dropped and we couldn't be more excited.

From the makers of Normal People and written by Sally Rooney, the drama series has been hotly anticipated ever since production was first announced.

Watch the trailer below:

The series will star emerging Irish talent Alison Oliver, alongside Sasha Lane (American HoneyThe Miseducation Of Cameron Post), Joe Alwyn (The FavouriteBilly Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk) and Jemima Kirke (Sex EducationGirls) and will be one of the first dramas to launch on BBC Three as it goes back on air.

Conversations with Friends follows Frances (Oliver), a 21-year-old college student, who tries to navigate a series of relationships that force her to confront her own vulnerabilities for the first time.

BBC explain: "Frances (Oliver) is observant, cerebral and sharp. Her ex-girlfriend, now best friend, Bobbi (Lane) is self-assured, outspoken and compelling.

"Though they broke up three years ago, Frances and Bobbi are virtually inseparable and perform spoken word poetry together in Dublin. It’s at one of their shows that they meet Melissa (Kirke), an older writer, who is fascinated by the pair.

"Bobbi and Frances start to spend time with Melissa and her husband, Nick (Alwyn), a handsome but reserved actor.

"While Melissa and Bobbi flirt with each other openly, Nick and Frances embark on an intense, secret affair that is surprising to them both. Soon the affair begins to test the bond between Frances and Bobbi, forcing Frances to reconsider her sense of self, and the friendship she holds so dear."

The 12-episode drama series, directed by Lenny Abrahamson (Room, Frank, Normal People) and Leanne Welham (Pili, His Dark Materials) is adapted from Sally Rooney’s debut novel of the same name.

If it's anything like the wildly successful, Emmy-winning adaption of Sally's Normal People back in 2020, then Conversations With Friends is definitely one to watch!

Conversations with Friends will premiere this May on BBC Three in the UK, Hulu in the US, and RTÉ in Ireland.
