This upcoming season will see a lot of changes for Nick and Charlie, including several new cast members. Leila Khan has joined as Sahar Zahid, a Higgs school student, Jack Barton is on board as Nick's older brother David, Bradley Riches is playing Truham student James McEwan, and Nima Taleghani is playing Truham teacher Mr. Farouk.
Oseman has also said that this season she wants to explore themes of mental health in the series.
"The challenge of writing Heartstopper is exploring those darker issues while keeping the tone so optimistic and hopeful. That has been, like, the struggle of writing it for me the whole way through," she told Digital Spy.
Now that season 2 is done filming, we should expect a release date announcement coming soon. Heartstopper has also already been renewed for season 3. Season 1 is currently streaming on Netflix.
