Netflix series Heartstopper has been renewed for seasons two and three.

On Friday (20 May), Netflix announced that the show had been renewed, with seasons two and three set for the future.

“To those who have fallen in love with Nick & Charlie, cried watching Alice Oseman’s magical story brought to life, or felt represented for the first time on-screen, I am elated to announce… Heartstopper has been renewed for TWO MORE SEASONS!” reads a message from the streamer’s official Twitter account.

In response, fans and cast members enthusiastically reacted on social media.
