Heartstopper season 1 debuted at #7 in Netflix’s global top 10 during the weekend of its release, prompting the streaming giant to greenlight Heartstopper season 2 and beyond.

The coming-of-age drama centers on 10th grader Charlie Spring (Joe Locke), his friends at Truham Grammar School, and his crush-turned-boyfriend Nick Nelson (Kit Connor).

The new series garnered an impressive 14,550,000 viewing hours according to data released the Tuesday following Heartstopper season 1’s release, and fans started straight away to ask for its renewal.

Heartstopper season 1 followed Charlie and his friends Tao and Isaac as they coped with their friend Elle moving to another school, especially as they were often tormented by the school bully Harry.

This big change happened simultaneously with Charlie being assigned a new homeroom deskmate, Nick, towards whom he started to develop romantic feelings.

Netflix’s Heartstopper is based on Alice Oseman’s webcomic turned graphic novels series of the same name.

It's unknown when Heartstopper season 2 will be released. Filming for season 1 started in April 2021 and took three months to shoot in the UK

With Heartstopper season 2 likely being more of a priority for Netflix than season 1, given its relative success, it's possible fans could see a release before the end of 2023.
