Fans are already asking about series two of Heartstopper on Netflix - here are the exciting details we know so far including the release date, the storyline and all the latest news.
Heartstopper dropped on Netflix on April 22, and 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 a season 2 is on the way!
With a fabulous cast, which includes Joe Locke who plays Charlie Spring and Kit Connor as Nick Nelson, and some of the best storylines, it's no wonder viewers are already looking forward to a second series.
The LGBTQ+ teen drama has taken the platform and social media by storm, meaning another series would be a guaranteed hit.
Here is everything we know about the next chapter of Charlie and Nick's love story and whether Heartstopper series two has been confirmed...
We're very happy to write that the mega-hit series is officially getting a series two and a series three!
On May 20, it was announced that Heartstopper was getting the eagerly-anticipated green light, the official Netflix Instagram account shared the amazing news by posting a carousel of their talented young cast holding up two fingers each.
Fans have had #RenewHeartstopper trending on Twitter multiple times since the show dropped and now they have multiple seasons to look forward to – talk about a result!
The first season adapted volumes one and two of the Heartstopper novels, so series two would likely explore the third volume.
Looks like we have plenty more to look forward to from Charlie and Nick's love story...
Heartstopper's author and illustrator Alice Oseman will return 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.
Netflix announced that Heartstopper has just wrapped filming on season 2, which means a 2023 release date is likely!
"That’s a wrap on Heartstopper Season 2” Netflix tweeted, along with a photo of co-stars Kit Connor and Joe Locke with writer and creator Alice Oseman.
With the story already written, it would save the production team a lot of time, but most of the season would need to be shot in Paris, France, as the city of love plays a huge part in the third volume.
