When is Heartstopper Season 2 Coming Out on Netflix?
The second season of Heartstopper will premiere on Netflix on August 3, 2023. In September 2022, Netflix announced that production on Heartstopper season 2 had commenced, and only seven months later, series stars Joe Locke and Kit Connor disclosed the official premiere date for season 2.
“What do you think is new in season 2, and what can fans expect?” Kit questions Joe. Cue a montage of behind-the-scenes footage from the production of the second season, as well as tantalizing teases from so many of your beloved actors and actresses.
Rhea Norwood, an actress, remarked, “We might anticipate Imogen to start taking care of herself a bit more and prioritize herself over boys.”
Yasmin Finney hinted, “There are so many things that happen to Elle this season that you are not prepared for.” “I would say Elle is distinct in that she is more self-assured. She surrounds herself with uplifting individuals.
“Charlie embarks on a longer voyage this season. “His narrative is somewhat more mature,” reveals Joe. Kit adds, referring to Heartstopper originator Alice Oseman, “Alice has given us some incredible scripts.” “It also feels cool and new, but with a different vibe than the first season.” Watch the announcement of the release date for yourself above!

Kit Connor (who portrays Nick), Joe Locke (Charlie), William Gao (Tao), Tobie Donovan (Isaac), Corinna Brown (Tara), Kizzy Edgell (Darcy), Sebastian Croft (Ben), Rhea Norwood (Imogen), and Jenny Walser (Tori) are among the cast members.
Following the announcement of Yasmin Finney’s casting in the iconic BBC science fiction series Doctor Who, there was some speculation as to whether she would return for season 2, but Netflix has verified that she will reprise her role as fan-favorite Elle. The preview hinted at the possibility of a blossoming romance between Elle and Tao.
Additionally, Netflix announced the addition of seven (!) new cast members. Jack Barton will portray David Nelson, Nick’s older brother; Nima Taleghani will play Mr. Farouk, a schoolteacher at Truham; Bradley Riches, who first appeared in S1 as a Truham student, will now return in a named role as James McEwan; Bel Priestley and Ash Self will portray Naomi and Felix, respectively, who are “new friends of Elle”; and Thibault de Montalembert will portray Stephane, Nick’s father.
Heartstopper issued an open casting call in July for the role of Sahar Zahid, a student from the original webcomic who attends Higgs. While acting experience was not required, the program specified that they were seeking plus-size British and South Asian actors who identify as female or nonbinary.
Netflix revealed that the seventh new cast member would be Leila Khan, who earned the role of Sahar “after a nationwide search” — this will be Khan’s first professional acting role. View more about the Season 2 ensemble of Heartstopper above.
What Will Heartstopper Season 2 Be About?
Season 1 of Heartstopper covered the events of Volumes One and Two of the 2019 graphic novel series Heartstopper, written by Alice Oseman. Oseman has affirmed that the plot of season 2 is based on Heartstopper Volume Three, in which Nick and Charlie encounter their first significant relationship problems and go on a school trip to Paris.
The third and fourth volumes of the graphic novel series were published in 2020 and 2021, respectively, and the fifth volume is scheduled for release in December 2023. A sixth and final volume has been announced, but no release date has been specified.
The official plot summary for the second season of Heartstopper was released by Netflix on April 24, 2023. “Nick and Charlie navigate their new relationship, while Tara and Darcy confront unanticipated obstacles and Tao and Elle determine if they can ever be more than just friends.
With upcoming exams, a school trip to Paris, and a prom to organize, the group has a lot to juggle as they navigate the next phases of life, love, and friendship.” It appears that the hunches were correct — we’re going to Paris!
