Heartstopper Season 2 is now available to stream on Netflix in multiple regions, after its initial premiere on the service on August 3. The next installment picks up right where the first one left off, following Nick, Charlie, and their friends as they navigate the trials and tribulations of high school, romance, and family drama.
Heartstopper Season 2 continues the plot lines of our favorite teens from the first season, while also adding in some new cast members, including Leila Khan as Sahar Zahid (a Higgs school student) and Jack Barton as David Nelson (Nick’s older brother). Where the first season encapsulates the first two volumes of Alice Oseman’s graphic novel series of the same name, the second one follows the next volumes while also expanding the world a bit. Charlie and Nick are getting settled into being a couple, though Nick is having trouble deciding how public he wants to be about their relationship and his sexuality. Meanwhile, Tao and Ellie are finally making their own romantic headway, though Tao struggles under the pressure he puts on himself which complicates matters. They’re not the only ones, as Tara and Darcy are facing relationship challenges.
Beyond their relationships, the cast also have to contend with upcoming exams, a big class trip to Paris, and planning their prom. There’s plenty to dig into this season, and will be even more to come, as the show was renewed for an additional two seasons after the success of the first. We’ll see at least one more season of the show, though beyond that is anyone’s guess.
