  • Charlie’s struggle with an eating disorder and his mental health.
  • The school’s reaction to Nick and Charlie’s relationship.
  • A school trip to Paris, the city of love.

Nick and Charlie have already dealt with homophobia, notably from Charlie’s closeted, abusive ex-boyfriend Ben and rich kid Harry. With the couple revealing their relationship to the world, the young couple can expect more trials and tribulations.

When will Heartstopper season 2 premiere on Netflix?

Officially, only a wide window of 2023 has been announced for the release of stopshearts season 2 so far.

how many seasons of stopshearts can we wait to see

Alice Oseman, the creator of stopsheartsthe show’s executive producer, revealed to RadioTimes that it could take up to four seasons to cover the «whole story.»

I haven’t done any detailed planning or anything, but it’s pretty easy to divide books into seasons, so four would be enough I think.

Arguably four seasons is the perfect number of seasons for Netflix to commit to. If the show’s popularity grows or retains its viewership since Season 1, then there’s no reason Alice Oseman’s four-season vision couldn’t be fulfilled.
