Heartstopper dropped on Netflix over a year ago and it didn't take long for audiences to stream through the eight episodes of the first season leaving a square-shaped hole in their lives - but thankfully season 2 is on the way!

The LGBTQ+ teen drama has taken the platform and social media by storm, meaning another series would be a guaranteed hit.

What's the plot of Heartstopper series two?

Heartstopper's author and illustrator Alice Oseman returns as writer for the show, following the graphic novel volumes that inspired the TV adaptation.

When speaking to Digital Spy about a second season, she said: "I'll definitely want to be bringing in the themes of mental health, because that's something that's really important in the books."

It's likely that the second season won't stray too far from the story illustrated in the original books; volume three delves deeper into Charlie and Nick's relationship as they continue to navigate school, friends and family.
