Heartstopper

Calling all ‘Heartstopper’ fans!

Netflix has unveiled the first new cast member for the third season of the hit queer Netflix series ‘Heartstopper.’

Netflix announced the casting on November 28, Tuesday, on X (formerly Twitter) and revealed that British actor Darragh Hand will be joining season three as the character Michael Holden. 

“Excited to officially welcome Darragh Hand to the Heartstopper family for S3. Our Michael Holden has arrived,” the X post read.

The author of the ‘Heartstopper’ graphic novels and showrunner of the Netflix series Alice Oseman also shared the news on Instagram where she expressed how thrilled they are to cast Hand. Michael Holden is one of the main characters of their first-ever novel, ‘Solitaire’ and a character in the ‘Heartstopper’ graphic novels. He was described as “a quirky, eccentric optimist with a sunshine disposition.”

Oseman said in their post that it was a challenge to look for the actor that truly channeled Michael from the books but that Darragh warmed their hearts and made them laugh.

The two main leads of the show Joe Locke (Charlie) and Kit Connor (Nick) will be returning for season three. Most of their main group of friends will be coming back save for Ben who is played by Sebastian Croft. 

Oseman previously issued an official statement explaining that Ben’s arc concluded in season two. 

Production for the third season of the popular teen queer show reportedly started in October 2023. The upcoming season has no official release date as of this writing but season three is expected to premiere in 2024 on Netflix.
