The entire lead cast will, of course, be returning for the new season, including Elle (played by Yasmin Finney), Tao (William Gao), Tara (Corinna Brown), Darcy (Kizzy Edgell) and Isaac (Tobie Donovan).

Olivia Coleman, the supportive mother of Nick, is likely to return for the second season, along with Fisayo Akinade as Mr. Ajayi.

Alice Oseman also confirmed with Digital Spy that the topic of mental health might also be tackled in the new season. It can be noted that Charlie had previously suggested how he struggled with his mental health when he came out.

“[I] definitely want to be bringing in the themes of mental health because that’s something that’s really important in the books,” Oseman said.

Heartstopper Season 2 release date

Unfortunately, no official announcement has been made regarding the release date of the new season. However, since production started in September, putting into account post-production and other stages, Season 2 may be released at the same time as the first season, which was on April 2022.

It’s no secret that Heartstopper took the hearts of many viewers who commended Netflix for putting into the screen a blossoming love of two LGBTQ+ characters in a coming-of-age drama that showed the complexities of sexuality. 

In addition, it allowed those who identify with the characters to be seen – an important concept for the media to explore in this day and age. – WhatALife!
