Next month, on 3 August, Heartstopper will come back to us — with more romance, queerness and yearning! The gang is going to Paris and we are truly so excited because after all the emotions season one of the TV series gave us, seeing our faves in the city of love is bound to be amazing. So, gather your queer friendship group, get comfortable with some blankets and prepare for all the cuteness that we have coming our way in season two.
Let’s start by sobbing over the first look stills from Netflix…

I mean look at the expressions on Nick and Charlie’s faces, and the way that Tara looks at Darcy! Is there anything sweeter than young love?
We’re so glad to know that the much loved cast of Joe Locke (Charlie), Kit Connor (Nick), Yasmin Finney (Elle), William Gao (Tao), Tobie Donovan (Isaac), Sebastian Croft (Ben), Corinna Brown (Tara), Kizzy Edgell (Darcy), Rhea Norward (Imogen) and Jenny Walser (Tori), will all be returning.
There are also a few new faces that we’ll be seeing: Leila Khan will play Sahar Zahid, a classmate of Elle, Tara and Darcy, Bradley Riches will play James McEwan, a new student at Truman and Nima Taleghani has the role of Mr Farouk, a Truman school teacher.
The Heartstopper cast actually had a float at Pride In London on 1 July, and they had a great time partying and unapologetically expressing themselves.
Here’s some of the content we got…

I would say that we’re in desperate need of more clips but we only have one short month to wait so I can be patient — especially since I will probably be devouring the whole season in one day. Yes, I’ll probably regret doing a binge… but I know myself and I will not be able to stop after one episode so it’s best to have realistic expectations.
