Netflix renews 'Heartstopper' for two more seasons

It’s official: Netflix has renewed ‘Heartstopper’ for two bad seasons. The platform has announced it with a video of Alice Oseman, author of the comics, drawing Nick and Charlie along with the message “two more seasons”.

‘Heartstopper’ premiered on the streaming platform at the end of April and, despite the fact that it did not reach the top of the ranking of the most viewed series published by Netflix (it did sneak into the top ten in 54 countries), In social networks it has become a real phenomenon. You just have to go through Twitter, Instagram or TikTok, where the hashtag has more than 4 billion views, to verify that there is a sector of the public absolutely obsessed with the characters of this LGBTQ+ series..

A very important series

Critics and viewers have surrendered to this small British series that brought Charlie Spring and Nick Nelson to life, two students at an all-boys school who become very close friends. Soon, friendship gives way to love, and with it conversations that are so important to teen audiences. It has been applauded how wonderfully portrayed diversity is, without running away from the problems that LGBTQ+ youth have to face but prioritizing an optimistic look that gives them hope that they too can find acceptance and live love stories that do not end in tragedy. It has been said that it is one of the most important series in recent years, and we cannot agree more. It is appreciated that Netflix has decided to renew a series – which frankly should not be exactly expensive – putting above what it supposes and what it has achieved at the level of dialogue and representation and not the number of viewings.

Joe Locke and Kit Connor will return to lead the cast for the second and third seasons, which will continue to have Alice Oseman as creator and screenwriter.and See-Saw Films as producer. The first season spanned the first two volumes of the comics, but it has not been specified whether the two seasons will continue the story of the panels as faithfully as the first.
