Does this mean we will finally get to see Charlie and Nick be boyfriends?
Netflix has released images from the highly anticipated second season of the tooth-achingly sweet queer series Heartstopper, and we will need a defibrillator. Get it? To restart our hearts. Because they stopped.
“Continuing the story of Nick, Charlie, and the rest of the Hearstopper gang for Season 2 has been an absolute privilege,” executive producer Patrick Walkers said in a statement. “Alice Oseman and I have been able to watch the actors evolve their performances in every way, and this season is so emotional because of their amazing work. Get ready!”
The series – led by young stars Kit Connor, Joe Locke, Yasmin Finney and William Gao – is based on the popular Heartstopper webcomics written by Oseman. Season one premiered in April 2022 and immediately shattered records for the streaming service. Fans fell in love with Nick (Connor), Charlie (Locke), and their friends at Truham and Higgs. The audience will discover how time has treated their favorite couples in season two.
“Nick and Charlie navigate their new relationship; Tara and Darcy face unforeseen challenges, and Tao and Elle work out if they can ever be more than just friends. With exams on the horizon, a school trip to Paris, and a prom to plan, the gang has a lot to juggle as they journey through the next stages of life, love, and friendship.”
Also returning this season are Corinna Brown, Kizzy Edgell, Sebastian Croft, Tobie Donovan, and Rhea Norwood. Jenny Walser, Cormac Hyde-Corrin, and Olivia Colman will also star.
The eight-episode season will premiere on Netflix on August 3rd! For now, stream season one of Heartstopper here.
