Netflix’s uber-popular LGBTQ teen romance series Heartstopper is back for its second season, guys, and they just recently dropped the first trailer!
Heartstopper is an LGBTQ+ coming-of-age drama set at an all-boys British grammar school. It follows the budding romance of Charlie Spring (played by out actor Joe Locke) and Kit Connor (who plays the role of Nick) as they both navigate their high school life along with their friends.
Here is the series’ official blurb straight from Netflix:
Nick and Charlie navigate their new relationship, Tara and Darcy face unforeseen challenges and Tao and Elle work out if they can ever be more than just friends. With exams on the horizon, a school trip to Paris and a prom to plan, the gang has a lot to juggle as they journey through the next stages of life, love, and friendship.
Heartstopper is based on Alice Oseman’s bestselling graphic novel of the same name. Oseman serves as the show’s creator and scriptwriter as well while Euros Lyn serves as its director. The latter is well-known for her popular British shows, the likes of Doctor Who, Sherlock, and Black Mirror.
