There is some exciting news for fans of the heartwarming coming-of-age series Heartstopper.
Netflix officially confirmed the renewal of Heartstopper season three and season two in May 2022. Loved for its LGBTQ+ stories and adorable characters, Heartstopper is a winner for the streaming platform.
The official Netflix Twitter account delighted fans with a cryptic message: “Heartstopper season 3. Episode 1. Love. That’s all we can tell you for now – but we’ll be back, as will Nick and Charlie.”
Accompanying this message was a sneak peek of the front page of a script, which revealed that the first episode of the new season is titled ‘Love’ and written by the series creator, Alice Oseman. This is indicative of the cliffhanger moment season two ended where we see Charlie ready to text “I love you” to Nick.
Heartstopper has captured hearts worldwide with its endearing portrayal of the love story between Nick and Charlie, two high school students navigating the complexities of their feelings and identities. The series has been praised for its sensitive and authentic depiction of LGBTQ+ experiences, making it a standout addition to Netflix’s lineup.
With the ongoing SAGAFTRA and WGA strikes, most Netflix US shows are on indefinite hiatus, making viewers divert their attention in higher amounts to shows from other countries. The release of new seasons of two big hits targeting the same age demographic as Heartstopper—Stranger Things and Wednesday—has been pushed back till 2025 or perhaps even further.
As fans eagerly await more details about the upcoming season, one thing is certain: Heartstopper season three promises to have more love in the air.
