The teaser for the upcoming season of Netflix’s most popular LGBTQ-friendly series ‘Heartstopper’ has been released, and fans are falling in love with this innocent same sex romance all over again.
The second season of ‘Heartstopper,’ based on a book written by Alice Oseman, will be released on August 3. The season will be based on volume three of Oseman’s original graphic-novel series, however, “there’s not enough in the book to take a whole season of TV, so there had to be a lot of creation of new stuff,” according to Oseman.
The 2-minute 44-second trailer depicts Truham students dealing with additional obstacles in both relationship and friendship, with Nick (Kit Connor) figuring out how to tell his loved ones about hid bf Charlie (Joe Locke), Elle (Yasmin Finney) and Tao (William Gao) afraid of ruining their long-time friendship because of their developing emotions, and Darcy (Kizzy Edgell) and Tara (Corinna Brown) confronting their love for each other.
The trailer opens with the commencement of a new term, with Charlie entering the classroom and shocking his boyfriend Nick. Before turning to the scene of Charlie yelling his heart out “I have a boyfriend” as he was leaving for school with his buddies Isaac and Tao, we see them smiling and enjoying their private time. While Nick and Charlie’s pals are aware of the new relationship, it appears Nick hasn’t told his family about his new lover. Meanwhile, viewers witness Elle’s friends urging her to confide with Tao about how she feels. The feelings are undeniably mutual, but Tao is concerned about ruining their bond. “If this doesn’t work out, then I lose my best friend in the world,” he confesses to his friends.
Tara has addressed her love for her girlfriend Darcy, but Darcy is having difficulty expressing her feelings to Tara. “I adore you.” “I’m not asking you to say it back or anything,” Tara replies. “Yeah,” Darcy says nonchalantly.
The romance and adventure don’t end there; it continues to tease the coming school trip to Paris, the city of romance. Charlie struggles to deal with what looks to be a hickey, while Elle finally admits her affection for her friend Tao.
Oseman also hinted that the second season will be “darker” than the first.
“Season two’s… aim was to capture the joy and magic of season one while also feeling like the characters have grown up and matured a little bit, so we’re exploring some things that are maybe a little darker than season one,” they explained.
“The romances are getting a little bit more mature… it’s like an elevation, I like to think, of season one.”
