‘Heartstopper’- An LGBTQ+ Drama For Teens

The LGBTQ+ love drama is based on Alice Oseman’s graphic book series of the same name, which follows two lads who meet at school and rapidly develop affections for each other. Before making the leap to the printed page, the graphic novel established a following as a Tumblr online comic.

Nick Nelson, a popular year 11 student, and Charlie Spring, a highly strung and openly homosexual over-thinker, are forced to sit next to one other one day, setting in motion a life-changing trip. Now we know when Heartstopper will be released on the streamer, and it’s not long away.

Heartstopper follows Nick Nelson and Charlie Spring, two schoolboys who meet for the first time after being forced to sit together in class. For openly homosexual Charlie, their relationship rapidly develops into something more, although he first doubts his chances with Nick – which is far from the case.

Release Date and Casts of the ‘Heartstopper’

The first season of Heartstopper has been announced for release on Netflix on Friday, April 22nd, 2022. The season will include a total of eight episodes, each lasting around 30 minutes.

Kit Connor, best known for portraying a young Elton John in the 2019 biopic Rocketman, will play Nick Nelson in Heartstopper, it was reported in April 2021. Fans of His Dark Materials will recognize him as Pan, the daemon of curious adolescent Lyra Belacqua, who appears in a variety of incarnations during the first two seasons.

Joe Locke, who was found by the production following an open casting call that received 10,000 auditions, will be Connor’s co-star in Heartstopper, portraying Charlie.
