Heartstopper Season 3 When Is It Coming To Netflix? Is It Cancelled?


Like a lot of hit shows, Heartstopper is based on a series of books. Written by Alice Oseman and adapted from her webcomic and graphic novel of the same name, the first season was released by Netflix in April 2022.

It is a coming of age story that has lit up Netflix with fans watching more than 24,000,000 hours of the show.

For those of you who have no idea what it is about, Heartstopper follows Truham Grammar High School student Charlie Spring who is assigned to sit next to Nick Nelson in his new form class.

Charlie quickly develops feelings for Nick and although they become friends, Charlie is unsure of Nick's sexuality. Plus Charlie is in a secret relationship with Ben Hope but when he sees Ben kissing a girl, Charlie ends things.

Then it all gets very complicated as teen love often does. Charlie vents to Nick about his relationship with Ben but Charlie's friend Tao Xu assumes that Nick is heterosexual and tells Charlie to abandon his feelings for Nick, but Charlie refuses.

He then tells him that Nick has a crush on a girl named Tara Jones, who is friends with Elle at Higgs (she transferred after coming out as transgender). But Tara is in a same-sex relationship with Darcy Olsson so wouldn't date Nick anyway.

Then Nick begins to question his own sexuality cos he kind of has feelings for Charlie. But he needs time to figure himself out so won't come out of the closet and instead goes on a date with a girl and the whole thing has to be explained before Nick publicly admits his feelings for Charlie.

As you can imagine, things do not go well with the school bully having a go at Charlie, ex Ben gets in on the action and, all in all, Charlie's life is a mess.

But all's well that ends well and the friends put their differences aside, love wins out, everybody comes out of their various closets and Charlie and Nick finally get together properly.

So now that you've been caught up on the origins Heartstopper, and probably already binged the second season, the big question is WHEN IS HEARTSTOPPER SEASON 3 COMING TO NETFLIX!!!

We wanted answers and Netflix gave them to us!

On May 20th 2022, Netflix confirmed Heartstopper season 3. They made the announcement before season 2 had even aired, which is incredibly rare! We also know that it is already in production so the good news is that we won't have to wait too much longer for new episodes.

And while we don't have an actual release date for Heartstopper Season 3, we are confident that it will air in the Summer of 2024.

The graphic novel author and illustrator Alice Oseman returns as writer and creator.

Fans love it so much that it featured in the top ten list of 67 different countries from around the world.

So if you can't wait for the new episodes, there are five books in the series. In fact, following the release of the show, volume one of Oseman's Heartstopper graphic novel became the top-selling children's bestseller in the UK.

How Successful Is Heartstopper?

We all know how amazing Heartstopper is but it's one thing to just love a show; it's another to impact the real world.

    As we all know, there are at least five books in the Heartstopper series so there is plenty of material to make another couple of seasons of the hit show.

    Netflix and Alice Oseman confirmed that there will be at least ONE more season as the love story between Charlie and Nick continues.


    A British drama, Heartstopper season one began filming in April 2021 mostly on location in Herne Bay, Kent, United Kingdom.

    Herne Bay High School was used for Truham Grammar School and Upton Court Grammar School in Slough was for filming Harvey Greene Grammar School (Higgs).

    The rugby scenes, as well as the Sports Day in the first season's finale, were filmed on the sports pitch at E-Act Burnham Park Academy.

    The railway station from where Nick and Charlie depart to the seaside is North Weald railway station in Essex, but the actual scene on the seaside is in Herne Bay.

    Season 2 saw the cast head to the city of romance when they visited Paris and we know that Heartstopper season 3 has even more travel plans.

    Scenes were filmed in both New York City and Singapore turning Nick and Charlie into quite the globetrotters!
