Will the Brooklyn sequel be made into a movie? What we know so far

Kat O'Connor

‘Brooklyn’ is one of our favourite movies, but is it getting a sequel?

‘Brooklyn’ was nominated for multiple Oscars after it was adapted for screen in 2015, but will we be getting a sequel?

Colm Tóibín has penned a sequel to the best-selling novel and we cannot wait to read it.

His novel ‘Long Island’ will be published later this year and as excited as we are to read it, we can’t help but wonder will Saoirse Ronan reprise her role as Eilis.

No official news has been shared on whether the book will be adapted for the screen, but we’re feeling hopeful about it.

There’s no doubt the book will soar to the top of the charts, so let’s hope it follows in its predecessor’s footsteps.

‘Long Island’ will be published on May 23rd, 2024.

You can read the synopsis below:

“A man with an Irish accent knocks on Eilis Fiorello’s door on Long Island and in that moment everything changes. Eilis and Tony have built a secure, happy life here since leaving Brooklyn,” the synopsis reads.

“Perhaps a little stifled by the in-laws so close, but twenty years married and with two children looking towards a good future.

“And yet this stranger will reveal something that will make Eilis question the life she has created. For the first time in years, she suddenly feels very far from home.

“The revelation will see her turn towards Ireland once again. Back to her mother. Back to the town and the people she had chosen to leave behind. Did she make the wrong choice marrying Tony all those years ago? Is it too late now to take a different path?”
