Heartstopper season 2’s premiere date on Netflix has been confirmed, with the long wait to see what becomes of Nick and Charlie’s relationship set to end in the summer.

The second season of the hit show, based on the graphic novel by Alice Oseman, will land on August 3. As with the first season, it will consist of eight episodes, and will follow the story of Nick (Kit Connor) and Charlie (Joe Locke) as they began navigating the transition from friends to something more against a background of exams, school trips and a prom.

“Nick and Charlie navigate their new relationship; Tara and Darcy face unforeseen challenges and Tao and Elle work out if they can ever be more than just friends,” reads the season logline. “With exams on the horizon, a school trip to Paris and a prom to plan, the gang has a lot to juggle as they journey through the next stages of life, love and friendship.”

Netflix announced the show’s return date in a video that captures the cast on set and asks them what fans can expect from its second instalment.

“There are so many things that happen to Elle this season that you’re not ready for,” suggested Yasmin Finney. “I would say Elle’s different in the sense that she’s more confident and is surrounding herself with people that elevate her.”

“Charlie goes on more of a journey this season,” added Locke. “He’s a bit more mature.”

Meanwhile, Rhea Norwood, who plays Imogen, said: “You might expect Imogen to start taking care of herself a bit more and put herself above boys,”

Alongside Locke, Connor, Finney and Norwood, the show will be welcoming back returning cast members William Gao, Corinna Brown, Kizzy Edgel and Olivia Colman. Meanwhile, Jack Barton (Netflix’s The Letter And The King) is set to join the cast as Nick’s older brother David. Other new additions include Nima Taleghani (Cyrano de Bergerac) as a teacher at Nick and Charlie’s school, newcomer Leila Khan as Sahar Zahid from a local girls’ school and Bradley Riches as new character James McEwan.

Oseman has returned to write the script while Euros Lyn returns to direct. A third season has already been greenlit by Netflix.
