‘Heartstopper‘ is a British coming of age rom-com-drama series streaming on Netflix. It is written and created by Alice Oseman, and is based on her webcomic and graphic novel of the same name. Season 1 was released on Netflix April 2022, and fans will be happy to know that season 2 is now available too.
‘Heartstopper’ Season 2 brings us another 8 episodes following the good “old” characters: Charlie, Nick, Elle and Tao. Together, or apart (no spoilers here), they are still confronting the challenges ahead of them as they are growing up.
Season 1 was received with critical acclaim, particularly for its tone and pacing, as well as its portrayal of LGBT people. It was nominated nine times and won innumerable awards, among them 3 Children’s and Family Emmy Awards; 1 for Best Musical Moment at the 2022 MTV Movie & TV Awards. The soundtrack deserves a mention, as it became rather popular.
‘Heartstopper‘ tells a heartwarming story in down to earth, yet entertaining way. It covers topics that are relevant to the young folks, such as bullying, young love, LGBTQ+ challenges, and friendships, and all the ups and downs teen years entail.
For those seeking a human, sweet and entertaining series, ‘Heartstopper’ is it. In the same way the first season was a success among young audiences, we are betting season 2 will be so too.
