The second season will feature eight episodes in total, and all of which will be available to stream on Netflix from August 3.

In a four-star review of season 2, NME wrote: “There is literally nothing in Heartstopper that would offend anyone, while it still acts as a Trojan Horse for representation. It’s the kind of show you know will make people feel less alone; pure bottled joy and a restorative tonic in these turbulent times.”

A third season of Heartstopper has already been greenlit by Netflix.
