Oseman previously told Metro.UK that ideally there will be four seasons. "It would probably be four seasons to cover the full story. I haven't done any in-detail planning or anything, but it's quite easy to divide up the books into seasons, so four I think would do it."
Heartstopper creator and writer Alice Oseman recently made a special announcement: "We were overjoyed with the global reaction to Heartstopper and can't wait to continue the story with two more seasons. Watch this space!"
Alice Oseman said in Tudum: "I hope that it just makes people smile and brightens their day — but I also hope that it inspires, particularly, young queer people to believe that they can find happiness and find romance and find friendship."
Heartstopper Season 1 covers Nick and Charlie's friendship blossoms into the most wholesome relationship, as they make snow angels and kiss in the rain. Viewers are also introduced to their friends Elle (Yasmin Finney) and Tao (William Gao), and school lesbian icons Tara (Corinna Brown) and Darcy (Kizzy Edgell).
