Daisy Edgar Jones enjoyed a Normal People reunion with fellow cast members including Paul Mescal, prompting speculation amongst fans that a second season could be happening.

The 23-year-old actress shared a series of black and white photo booth pictures of herself posing with co-stars Mescal, Fionn O'Shea and India Mullen on Instagram, and added the caption: "Chaos."

Daisy was inundated with comments from fans asking whether their reunion meant another series was about to be confirmed, while others couldn't resist pointing out Paul's new look moustache.

"Love you guys... Season 2?" one commented.

Another added: "Mescal moustache... Say what?"

Adapted from Sally Rooney's bestselling novel of the same title, Normal People followed lovers Marianne and Connell (Daisy and Paul) as they navigated the travails of adolescence and young adulthood. Finn O'Shea played Marianne's entitled boyfriend Jamie, while India Mullen starred as Marianne's Trinity College friend Peggy.

Sadly, it seems that a second series of the BBC One drama is unlikely, with co-producer Ed Guiney recently telling press that their focus is now on adapting Rooney's debut novel, Conversations with Friends.

"Not in the short term," he explained. "We've turned our attention – we're adapting Conversations with Friends [Rooney's debut novel] as a television series."

Paul added: "At the moment, there's nothing at all in the pipeline so I don't want to be quoted on 'maybe there's going to be a [Normal People] season 2'. There's nothing at the moment."

Conversations with Friends follows two college students Frances and Bobbi, whose lives become entangled with that of an older, successful couple, Melissa and Nick. Alison Oliver - who graduated from the same acting school as Normal People's Paul Mescal - takes the lead as Irish student Frances, while Sasha Lane, who has starred in movies Honey and The Miseducation of Cameron Post, will play best friend Bobbi.

Girls star Jemima Kirke will play Melissa, and The Favourite's Joe Alwyn will play Nick.

Meanwhile, Daisy takes the lead in the anticipated film adaptation of Delia Owens' debut novel Where the Crawdads Sing, made by Reese Witherspoon's production company Hello Sunshine.

Set in the 1950s and '60s, the coming-of-age story-turned murder mystery follows a girl named Kya (Daisy), born near the intoxicating marshes of North Carolina who learns to become self-sufficient when she's abandoned by her family as a child. Some years later, when a young local man is suddenly found dead, Kya immediately becomes a suspect and is thrust into public life after decades of solitude.

The film will be released in cinemas on July 22nd.

Fans of Paul Mescal can look forward to seeing him in sci-fi thriller Foe with Saoirse Ronan, a modern-day reimagining of classical opera Carmen, directed by Benjamin Millepied (husband of Natalie Portman), and World War 1 gay romance The History of Sound. The actor will also star opposite Maid's Margaret Qualley in The End of Getting Lost, and feature in Irish drama Bring Them Down.
