Will there be a season two of Heartstopper?

Netflix is yet to announce an official second season for their latest mega-hit series, understandable as the show only dropped in late April.

However, with the incredible success, the teen drama has seen in its first week of streaming, fans believe it's very likely to receive the green light for a follow-up! There's also more for fans to see of Charlie and Nick's love story.

The first season adapted volumes one and two of the Heartstopper novels, so series two would likely explore the third volume.

In May, fans even got #RenewHeartstopper trending as the conversation surrounding a potential second season continues.

What will happen in series two of Heartstopper?

Heartstopper's creator Alice Oseman seems hopeful for the Netflix show's future as she hinted towards further series of the drama when speaking to Digital Spy, revealing the angle she'd like to take with series two.

When speaking on how the story could develop, Alice told the publication: "If we do get future seasons, I'll definitely want to be bringing in the themes of mental health, because that's something that's really important in the books."

Heartstopper is based on the graphic novel series of the same name, therefore it's likely that the second season would follow the story illustrated in the original books.

Season one explored the storylines from volumes one and two of the graphic novels, meaning a second series could potentially pick up from volume three.

When will series 2 of Heartstopper come out?

If Heartstopper were to be confirmed for series two, it could have a release date of 2023.

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.
