Heartstopper Season 2

‘Heartstopper creator’ Alice Oseman has teased that mental health will be a “big element” in season three of the hit queer Netflix show. 

Following the success and praises that season two received for its representation of queer teachers, asexuality, and discussion around mental health, Oseman revealed that she is currently writing the third season of the show, much to the delight of fans.

 

SPOILER ALERT!

 

Season two saw Charlie (Joe Locke) revealing to Nick (Kit Connor) that he suffers from an eating disorder, and opens up in the finale about how he used to self-harm. Addressing what’s to come in the third season, Oseman stressed that mental health will be a focal point in the future.

Oseman said in an interview with Metro UK that the show has started to explore mental health in a big way” and that “I think it’s pretty obvious from the way we leave the season that is going to be a big element of season three.”

The creator added that the viewers will continue to look at mental health in a “big way” and will explore how that will affect Nick and Charlie’s relationship, as well as the other friendships in the show.

 

Alongside exploring these sensitive topics, season three will supposedly follow the supporting characters following the acknowledgment of Tao and Elle’s feelings for each other, Darcy opening up to Tara about her distressed relationship with her mother, and Isaac discovering asexuality.

There is currently no release date for season three. Season two is streaming on Netflix now.
