Heartstopper first dropped on Netflix in 2022, gaining instant popularity, and returned for a second season in August 2023. This heartwarming series follows Nick (Kit Connor) and Charlie (Joe Locke), two teenage boys navigating friendship, coming out, mental health, and love. Based on the comic series by Alice Oseman, who is also the Netflix series creator and writer, this wholesome love story has captured the hearts of many viewers around the world, and has been praised for its meaningful LGBTQ2S+ representation.
The show is already in production for a third season, and Oseman dropped some hints to Tudum about what fans can expect after the cliffhanger that closed out Season 2.
“I think [Season 2’s ending] just sets up that conversation for next season,” Oseman told Tudum. “We know that Charlie loves Nick, and I think we know that Nick loves Charlie as well. It’s just about when and how they’re going to say that to each other.”
We also know the first episode of Season 3 is titled “Love”… so there are plenty of feels in store for audiences eagerly awaiting new episodes.
