The Starz network is in the same wait-and-see boat when it comes to its recent series Dublin Murders, which featured a fine bunch of Irish talent – including best-selling Irish-American writer Tana French, on whose books the series was based.

Jeffrey Hirsch, president and CEO of Starz, told Deadline.com that the show’s ratings were impressive.

“The audience grew from the beginning to the end of the series, which for us is always a great indicator of success,” he said. “We’re currently in talks about more seasons. There’s a couple more [Tana French] books that we’re looking at right now; we’re trying to figure out what that looks like right now. We’ll hopefully continue to have good conversations.”

Dublin Murders, based on two separate French mystery novels, stars Irish actors Killian Scott and Sarah Greene as detectives struggling to solve a terrible crime, and come to terms with their feelings for each other.

Until then, Sarah Green will appear in Hulu’s highly anticipated adaptation of Sally Rooney’s Irish novel Normal People
