If you loved the book 'Normal People' by Irish author Sally Rooney, you would have been excited to watch Hulu's and BBC's joint adaptation of the same name that released for streaming toward the end of April. Now, the show is finding a new set of fans after it was revealed that one of the Kardashian sisters is potentially a big fan.

Kourtney Kardashian was caught possibly binge-watching the Irish drama about two teenagers -- Connell Waldron (Paul Mescal) and Marianne Sheridan (Daisy Edgar-Jones) -- falling in love. The show follows the two of them as they graduate high school and move to Dublin to go to Trinity College in the city.

Kourtney took to Instagram and shared a clip from the show in her stories, featuring Connell’s arm around Marianne. In another, she wrote “This show,” followed by a love heart and a sad face emoji.

Featuring profound and heartbreaking scenes, 'Normal People' explores what millennial love feels like and best of all, it gives it the importance it deserves. Of course, fans can't believe that the reality star is just like them and binge-watching the show. 

One fan tweeted, "Like Is it not so weird that Kourtney Kardashian that is chilling watching normal people. LIKE WHAT," while another wrote, "How must @mescal_paul
and @DaisyEdgarJones feel now that Kourtney Kardashian is watching Normal People and aware of who they are I can't cope like whaaat."

One fan joked, "I think it’s the best thing ever that Kourtney Kardashian is watching Normal People along with the rest of us like .. she really is a normal person ha ha." Another shared, "Can't believe Kourtney Kardashian is watching Normal People and potentially believing that lads from Sligo are actually like Connell." 

One fan wrote, "The actual thought of a Kardashian watching Normal People is bizarre to me, like Kourtney Kardashian is watching a show about a GAA lad named Connell and his gal Marianne from SLIGO, and has Trinity in it.. my brain can’t comprehend it hahaha."

With Kourtney's stamp of approval, 'Normal People' is set to find a whole new set of fans. One user tweeted, "Kourtney kardashian is literally watching normal people wtf STREAM." Another shared, "Okay if Kourtney Kardashian is watching normal people I’m going to give it another chance and watch one more episode even though it is SOSOSOOOOOOO boring."

The full season of 'Normal People' is available to stream on Hulu if you are in the US, and on BBC iPlayer if you are in the UK.
