Alice Oseman reported ‘Heartstopper’ will continue with a two-season renewal on Netflix

According to Netflix Tudum, Oseman happily reported the Netflix series got a renewal, and fans are over the moon. The author announced Heartstopper Season 2 and Season 3 with a short, fast-forwarded reel of her illustrating Nick and Charlie on an iPad. The song “Bang Bang Bang” by Lauran Hibberd plays in the background. The lyrics could not be more appropriate as they say, “Bang Bang Bang I’ll be back again.”

Oseman finishes the illustration by writing “2 more seasons.” Fans can see the happiness in the author’s eyes as the series has gained so much love from global fans for its storyline and charming leading cast.

In another Tudum article, Oseman explains her hopes for the series. “I hope that it just makes people smile and brightens their day — but I also hope that it inspires, particularly, young queer people to believe that they can find happiness and find romance and find friendship,” said the author.

The plot for Heartstopper Season 2 has not been officially revealed, but fans have a general idea of what could occur. Oseman previously reported the first season encompassed more than one novel. She teased that if the series were renewed, fans would get to see a new possible romance.

She was implying to Charlie’s art teacher Mr. Ajayi (Fisayo Akinade). In the novels, he begins a budding romance with another teacher fans have yet to be introduced to. The following novels also have an important trip to Paris where Mr. Ajayi forms a friendship with the other teacher.

Oseman has also previously explained Heartstopper Season 2 would also explore more mental health themes. According to Digital Spy, it is an important aspect of the novels and for the main characters. “The challenge of writing Heartstopper is exploring those darker issues while keeping the tone so optimistic and hopeful. That has been, like, the struggle of writing it for me the whole way through,” explained Oseman.

Fans who kept a keen eye on Charlie in the series might have noticed his habit of not wanting to eat. It is a topic that is often discussed and becomes a big part of his story with Nick in the novels. The following seasons of Heartstopper have a lot to explore, but there is no set premiere date or plan.
