At the risk of reigniting the Sally Rooney Discourse—today, Hulu and BBC Three released a few early images from their upcoming adaptation of Sally Rooney’s bestselling first novel Conversations With Friends, which will premiere sometime this spring. (If you somehow don’t know what this novel is about—hi Jon—you can read an excerpt here.) The 12 episode series stars Alison Oliver, Sasha Lane, Joe Alwyn, and Jemima Kirke, whom you can see in all their moody, overthinking-it glory here:

Conversations with Friends — “Episode 2” — At Melissa’s birthday party, Frances finds herself alone with Nick. They can’t resist the attraction between them and kiss. The next day Frances visits her parents in the country and agonizes over what this turn of events might mean. Frances (Alison Oliver), shown.

Having not seen or spoken to Nick in a few weeks, Frances learns that he has had a tough time recently and they both realize that they are still attracted to each other.
