Netflix will release Heartstopper season 2 this summer. The adolescent drama was a tremendous hit when it debuted on the streaming service back in April 2022. Fans praised the show for its positive portrayal of the LGBTQ+ community, which led to a multi-season renewal in May, less than a month after season 1’s debut.
The whole Heartstopper core cast, including returning Kit Connor and Joe Locke, will return for the second season, and they’ll be joined by a multitude of new faces, including Thibault De Montalembert, Bel Priestley, and Ash Self.
Elle’s “new friends” are Naomi Priestley and Felix Self, while Nick (Connor)’s father is Stephane Montalembert.
We may anticipate some drama between Sarah Nelson and her ex, Stephane, since Chetna Pandya, Fisayo Akinade, Alan Turkington, and Olivia Colman will all be returning as Coach Singh, Mr. Ajayi, Mr. Lange, and Mrs. Nelson.
Heartstopper season 2 release date
