Netflix has revealed the official trailer and photos for Heartstopper Season 2, premiering on the streaming service on August 3, 2023. Scroll down to watch the trailer and view all the photos.
In the first season of the popular series, boy meets boy. Boys become friends. Boys fall in love. When gentle Charlie and rugby-loving Nick meet at secondary school, they quickly discover that their unlikely friendship is blossoming into an unexpected romance.
Charlie, Nick and their circle of friends must navigate the ever-relatable journey of self discovery and acceptance, supporting each other as they learn to find their most authentic selves.
In the eight-episode Heartstopper Season 2, Nick and Charlie navigate their new relationship; Tara and Darcy face unforeseen challenges and Tao and Elle work out if they can ever be more than just friends.
With exams on the horizon, a school trip to Paris and a prom to plan, the gang has a lot to juggle as they journey through the next stages of life, love and friendship.
Heartstopper stars Kit Connor, Joe Locke, Yasmin Finney, William Gao, Corinna Brown, Kizzy Edgell, Sebastian Croft, Tobie Donovan, Rhea Norwood, Jenny Walser, Cormac Hyde-Corrin and Olivia Colman.
From See-Saw Films, the series is written and created by Alice Oseman and directed by Euros Lyn. The executive producers include Patrick Walters, Iain Canning, Emile Sherman, Alice Oseman, and Euros Lyn.
The show, which will return for a third season as well, is based on the webcomic and graphic novels by Alice Oseman (buy now at Amazon).
“Season 2 is based on Volume 3,” Oseman told Netflix’s Tudum. “So we had a good foundation. But there’s not enough in the book to take a whole season of TV, so there had to be a lot of creation of new stuff.”
Oseman added that Heartstopper is about “exploring real, serious issues that can be dark, but trying to balance that with that feeling of hope that things can and will get better. From a writing perspective, that can be really difficult to achieve without making it too dark or without skimming over the darker elements of the story. But striving for that balance is the point of Heartstopper.”
