What will Heartstopper Season 2 be about?
While there is no official synopsis for what will unfold in the second season of Heartstopper, by looking at the end of the first season, we can see that they have laid the foundation to explore new situations in the upcoming episodes.
Heartstopper concluded its first season with a relatively closed ending, with Nick opening up to his mother about his relationship with Charlie and taking a significant step forward by coming out. This has been a powerful and season-long journey for him… but it’s not the end.
Nick still has to face what will happen at school when everyone finds out about his relationship with Charlie. It’s clear that the bully Harry won’t make it easy, and it remains to be seen how the couple themselves will handle these new pressures they’ll face.
