Attention Heartstopper fans! Netflix has released the first scene from the show’s second season.
On 17 June, the popular streamer hosted its global Tudum event – which features new previews from some of the platform’s biggest TV shows and movies.
During the entertainment extravaganza, Netflix shared the opening scene from Heartstopper’s second season with the help of Corinna Brown and Kizzy Edgell – who play Tara Jones and Darcy Olsson, respectively.
“We can’t wait for you to see season two, and just for you lucky lot at Tudum and for those streaming at home, we’ve got an exclusive look at the opening of episode one,” the two exclaimed.
Following Brown and Edgell’s enthusiastic introduction, the video switches over to Charlie Spring, played by Joe Locke, waking up for the day with an absolutely adorable text message from his newly minted boyfriend, Nick Nelson – played by Kit Connor.
“Does being boyfriends mean we do good morning texts now,” Charlie responds, which results in a witty message from Nick over what constitutes a “good morning” message.
As the sneak peek progresses, Charlie continues to smile at his phone while he does his morning routine and rides the bus alongside his sister Tory (Jenny Welser) – who rolls her eyes at their flirtatious conversation.
Paralleling season one’s opening scene, the teaser ends with various shots of Charlie walking into Truman Grammar School before Nick surprises him from behind with their signature greeting – “Hi.”
In addition to the heartwarming opening scene, the Tudum preview also dropped the titles of the forthcoming batch of episodes.
The titles of the eight episodes are as follows: Out, Family, Promise, Challenge, Heat, Truth/Dare, Sorry, and Perfect.
In response to the sneak peek, fans took to social media to express their excitement for season two.
One fan wrote: “I MAY BE CRYING AND MY FAMILY CAN VISIBLY SEE ME BUT IDC I’M SO EXCITED SJDFSH.”
Another fan tweeted: “I’m soooo excited but wondering if I should watch season 1 for the 7th time.”
Fans won’t have to wait too long for Heartstopper season two, which is set to premiere on 3 August.
The synopsis is as follows: “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. 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.”
In addition to Connor and Locke, and Walser reprising their roles, season two will see the return of William Gao as Tao, Yasmin Finney as Elle, Sebastian Croft as Ben Hope, Cormac Hyde-Corrin as Harry Greene, and Rhea Norwood as Imogen Heaney.
