Added to the platform’s catalogue barely a month ago, Heartstopper is already guaranteed to last until season 3. This is an obvious decision given the popularity of the series, which centres on a gay teenage love story.
The new teen series Heartstopper has just been officially renewed by Netflix not only for a second season but also for a third! The announcement, made on Twitter on Friday 20 May, reassures fans and shows that the streaming giant believes in Nick and Charlie’s touching story. It is also Alice Oseman, creator of the graphic novels that inspired the series, who is over the moon: witness the adorable drawing she made to share the news on social networks.
“To those who have fallen in love with Nick & Charlie, cried watching Alice Oseman’s magical story brought to life, or felt represented for the first time on-screen, I am elated to announce… Heartstopper has been renewed for TWO MORE SEASONS!” Netflix tweeted.
Heartstopper, which hit the screens only a month ago, on 22 April, tells the story of the budding love between two British schoolboys: Charlie, an introverted young man who comes to terms with his homosexuality despite being teased by some of his classmates, and Nick, an aspiring rugby player who takes him under his wing. The eight-episode first season also includes other LGBTQI+ characters, such as the lesbian couple Tara and Darcy and a trans teenager named Elle.
