Netflix has revealed via X (formerly Twitter) that filming has begun on Heartstopper series three.
Alice Oseman’s hugely successful LGBTQ+ graphic novels gained instant popularity as a television series when released by Netflix back in 2020, with its portrayal of gay, lesbian and transgender teenagers resonating around the globe.
Main characters Nick (Kit Connor) and Charlie (Joe Locke) have gone from on-again-off-again flirtations and Nick’s coming out the closet, to going public with their relationship and almost saying those all-important three words in series two’s finale.
If the third series is to follow the novels, it will feature the students of ‘Heartstopper-High’ going to college. One character is already confirmed to not make a reappearance, as Sebastian Croft’s Ben Hope apologised for his behaviour to Charlie and revealed he would not be returning to school at the end of series two.
Netflix previously revealed on X that the first episode will be titled 'Love', before teasing: "but that's all we can tell you for now."
Kit Connor won the Leading Actor – Male Award at the RTS Programme Awards 2023, describing Heartstopper as “a big honour in [his] life”, continuing, “there’s really something for everyone, it’s just simple, human, emotion.”
Series one and two of Heartstopper are available to stream on Netflix.
