What Will Heartstopper Season 2 Be About?
According to BBC News, the creator of the Heartstopper graphic novel, Alice Oseman, spoke about the second season at the Hay Festival. “The goal of Season 2 was to capture the joy and magic of Season 1 while also feeling like the characters had grown up and matured a little bit, so we’re exploring some things that are perhaps a little darker than Season 1.”
Isaac (Tobie Donovan), who does not appear in the novels but is a buddy of both Charlie and Nick in the series, appears to play a larger part in Season 2. At the festival, Oseman stated, “I’m really excited there’s going to be ase*ual and aromantic representation with Isaac.” You may also enjoy our coverage of various excellent TV series and movies on our website The Current Online.
