As fans know, Heartstopper Season 1 followed the burgeoning love story of high school students Charlie and Nick, who, according to Netflix, "meet at secondary school [and] quickly discover that their unlikely friendship is blossoming into an unexpected romance."

From there, the boys — and their circle of friends — embark on a journey of finding out who they are, as well as being accepted by others.

Fans sure want a 'Heartstopper' Season 3.

It seems that Alice's desire to make fans happy — and feel uplifted — with the show has been accomplished. As she told Tudum previously, “I hope that it just makes people smile and brightens their day — but I also hope that it inspires, particularly, young queer people to believe that they can find happiness and find romance and find friendship."

Executive producer Patrick Walters also enthused, "We put so much love into the making of Heartstopper so to reassemble the team for two more seasons is a dream come true."

He added, "I’m forever grateful to Alice Oseman for entrusting us with this beautiful, unique story that at its core seeks to uplift the next generation of young LGBTQ+ people. Stay tuned!”
