Jonathan Bailey Joins ‘Heartstopper’ in a Heart-throbbing New Role

Everyone say “hi” to Jack Maddox (AKA our forever crush Jonathan Bailey).

It’s real! Jonathan Bailey, the Bridgerton star and upcoming Wicked heartthrob, has joined the cast of Heartstopper for season 3. According to Netflix, Bailey is joining for a cameo appearance as Jack Maddox, Charlie’s Instagram-famous crush.

The Heartstopper Family Keeps on Growing

Though fans had pieced together clues about Bailey’s involvement, Netflix finally confirmed it, ending the speculation. However, the dreamy actor is not the only one joining the Heartstopper fam.

‘I am incredibly excited to be welcoming three new cast members to the Heartstopper family,” shared author Alice Oseman.

In addition to Bailey, Eddie Marsan (Back to Black, Ray Donovan) and Hayley Atwell (Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One and Captain America: The First Avenger) will be guest starring.

“Hayley Atwell joins the Nelson family as Nick’s Aunt Diane, who takes Nick on a summer holiday to Menorca and has some tough advice to impart about his relationship. Eddie Marsan will be portraying a beloved character from the graphic novels: Geoff, Charlie’s wise and straight-talking therapist.”

Atwell’s entrance is bittersweet, as fans mourn Olivia Colman’s exit as Nick’s mom. Fortunately, Nick won’t be alone this season! His aunt will be there to help navigate him through tough times in his relationship with Charlie.

It was an absolute joy to see Hayley, Eddie, and Jonathan’s talent alongside our existing cast, and I can’t wait for the Heartstopper fans to meet these new characters,” Oseman concluded.

About S3

“Charlie would like to tell Nick that he loves him. Nick also has something important to say to Charlie. As the summer holiday ends and the months race on, the friends begin to realise that the school year will come with both its joys and its challenges. As they learn more about each other and their relationships, plan social events and parties and start thinking about university choices, everyone must learn to lean on those they love when life doesn’t go to plan.”

Heartstopper season 3 will arrive on Netflix this October.
