Heartstopper is a Netflix teen romance show based on the graphic novel series of the same name by Alice Oseman. The heartwarming story about Charlie and Nick took everyone’s breath away, but after what happened with Inside Job, people might fear the fate of their favorite shows. Is Heartsropper safe?

Is Heartstopper Season 2 Cancelled?

You’ll be glad to know that Heartstopper hasn’t been cancelled. Two more seasons were confirmed shortly after the first season’s release, and the filming for season two has already wrapped. Alice Oseman shared pictures with the whole cast on her Instagram and told us the scripts are full of surprises for both fans of the show and readers of the comic.

Post-production has already started, and we will soon see the cast back at Truman Academy having fun and stealing our hearts again. The second season will explore how the rest of the school will react to Charlie and Nick’s relationship, not to mention the whole gang on a trip to Paris. They sure have a big year ahead of them! Alice Oseman also confirmed that season two will adapt the third volume of the comic, which dives deeper into mental health issues.

The new character’s roles, how Ben, Charlie’s kind-of ex, will deal with the situation, and what the gang will do in Paris still remain to be seen. But we probably won’t have to wait long.

Heartstopper Season 2 Release Date

The second season has been officially confirmed for 2023. While we still don’t know the specific date, we can make a few assumptions. Alice Oseman stated in early 2022 that the filming was wrapped and the crew was ready for post-production, so the next season will probably reach our screens soon.

Season one was released roughly a year after it wrapped production, so if season two takes the same amount of time, we might expect a release in October. However, COVID-19 was still a big issue in 2021, something the crew doesn’t have to worry much about now, meaning the season can come a bit earlier than expected, for example, in July.
