Curious about what lies ahead for the lovebirds and their pals? Here’s all you need to know about Heartstopper season three.
Heartstopper Season 3 Release Date: New beginning or sad goodbye?
When Netflix announced the renewal of Heartstopper for season two, they also confirmed Heartstopper Season 3 would follow, adapting Alice Oseman’s graphic novel series. However, the exact release date for season three remains uncertain. There are rumors suggesting that filming might start in October 2023, but no official confirmation has been given.
Thankfully, the production of the show, being a UK-based show, is not expected to be affected by the ongoing strike action in Hollywood. Assuming filming proceeds smoothly and follows the release pattern of the second season, fans could possibly expect to see Nick and Charlie’s story continue in late 2024.

In the finale of Heartstopper’s second season, Nick and Charlie share a touching moment where Charlie opens up about the homophobic bullying he endured after coming out.
