Where is ‘Conversations with Friends’ filmed? All the locations revealed

Written by Travel Adventures

There were many TV hits during lockdown, but Normal People – the adaptation of Irish writer Sally Rooney’s coming-of-age novel – was one of the biggest. With all 12 episodes released in a single, binge-worthy box-set, it was streamed more than 62 million times and became BBC iPlayer’s most popular series of 2020 – launching the careers of actors Paul Mescal and Daisy Edgar-Jones.

Now Rooney’s debut novel, Conversations with Friends, is being adapted for the small screen, and is set to be shown on BBC3 and BBC1 early next year across 12 half-hour episodes. The drama, about two students’ relationship with an older married couple, will star Jemima Kirke (Girls, Sex Education), Sasha Lane (The Miseducation of Cameron Post, American Honey, Utopia) and Joe Alwyn (The Favourite, Mary Queen of Scots, also known as Taylor Swift’s current squeeze), along with newcomer Alison Oliver.

Like Normal People, Conversations with Friends has an Irish setting, with the narrative told from the point of view of Frances, a 21-year-old student at Trinity College Dublin. The story revolves around her friendship with her ex-girlfriend Bobbi, and their evolving relationship with Nick, an actor, and his wife Melissa, a journalist. Filming locations will include Dublin and Belfast, along with some international locations – in the book, the characters go on holiday amid the lakes and green pastures of northern France.

We’ll update this when we know more. In the meantime, Sally Rooney’s third novel, Beautiful World, Where Are You – following the interwoven sex lives and friendships (sounds familiar?) of four young people – will be released on 7 September, thus paving the way for a potential third TV drama based on the novelist’s work.
