Heartstopper season 2 finale left things in a dramatic, bittersweet situation, and fans are left wondering how soon they’ll know what happens next. Despite some touching moments, including director Euros Lyn’s favorite sequence, things were left in quite a bittersweet spot!
On August 3rd, the uplifting LGBTQ+ series returned with eight brand-new episodes, and following the finale, viewers are clamoring for more. The season’s main themes were the Truman and Higgs group and Nick and Charlie’s developing romance. They may become closer in the next Season 3 as they deal with the challenges of being an openly gay couple in high school.
The good news is that Netflix has announced a double renewal for the popular series, which means it will return for a third season. The bad news is that it won’t arrive right away, so we’ll have to wait.
Wondering what the future holds for the Heartstopper couple and their friends? Here’s everything you need to know about Heartstopper season 3!
Is Heartstopper season 3 happening?
Netflix said on May 20, 2022 that Heartstopper would return for not one, but two more seasons! So yep, Heartstopper season 3 has been formally announced and will premiere very soon!
Season three will likely adapt Alice Oseman’s fourth book of their graphic novel series, which has Charlie and Nick attending college along with introducing new characters and topics, based on the plots in season two. Oh, we are so eager!
‘Heartstopper’ creator Alice Oseman confirms to Entertainment Weekly that she is “actively writing” season 3 of the Netflix show.

Heartstopper season 3 release date
If the show follows a similar timetable to season 2, season 3 production is expected to start in October 2023, placing Nick, Charlie, and the rest of the group back on our televisions in May or June 2024. All we can do is wait and see.
Given that Heartstopper is a UK production connected to British unions, it is doubtful that the current Screen Actors Guild (SAG) and Writers Guild of America (WGA) strikes would significantly impact season 3.
Who will be in the Heartstopper season three cast?
According to Hindustan Times, Heartstopper season 3’s cast has not yet been officially announced, however it is quite probable that all of your favourite actors, including Kit Connor and Joe Locke as girlfriends Nick Nelson and Charlie Spring, will be back.
The majority of the core characters should return for a third season based on Alice’s graphic books, including:
- Kit Connor as Nick Nelson
- Joe Locke as Charlie Spring
- William Gao as Tao Xu
- Yasmin Finney as Elle Argent
- Rhea Norwood as Imogen Heaney
- Kizzy Edgell as Darcy Olssen
- Corinna Brown as Tara Jones
- Tobie Donovan as Isaac Henderson
What to expect from the season 3 plot of Heartstopper?
A heartwarming encounter between Nick and Charlie occurs in the second season’s final episode. After coming out, Charlie talks about the horrific bullying he experienced, and Nick almost declares his love for Charlie.
We can speculate about what might occur in Heartstopper’s third season based on Oseman’s books. The first season of Oseman’s series covered the first two books, while the second season featured the students’ journey to Paris from the third volume.
As a result, the third season will likely come after Oseman’s fourth book, in which Charlie and Nick enrol in college.
Where to watch Heartstopper season 3?
You can watch all the last season’s episodes of Heartstopper on Netflix. The third edition will also premiere on the same streaming platform.
Will there be a season 4 of Heartstopper?
