'Heartstopper' Author Alice Oseman Announces End to Beloved Comic
Cherish these days at Truham Grammar High because they won't last forever — something Alice Oseman confirmed on Twitter.
The Heartstopper creator has announced that a fifth volume of the beloved Heartstopper comic — which the Netflix series is based on — will hit store shelves in the U.K., Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand on Nov. 9. Oseman said "more info" about the volume's release in other countries is "coming soon!"
In addition to Vol. 5, Oseman also revealed that the tale of Nick and Charlie's relationship will end with Vol. 6., which currently does not have a release date.
As Logo previously reported, Netflix's megahit YA LGBTQ series had our hearts melting back when it premiered last spring, but after only eight episodes fans were swooning for more. Thankfully, Netflix granted a two-season renewal order for Heartstopper, promising fans at least two additional seasons of Nick and Charlie's adorable rugby romance.
Oseman previously revealed that Season 2 would adapt storylines from the third volume of the Heartstopper graphic novels:
"That is when the teacher romance happens. So in the show, we've already got Mr. Ajayi, but in the books, there's also Mr. Farouk, who comes in, in volume three," Oseman explained. "And they have this kind of interesting friendship going on in the background that eventually becomes something more."
"I think that will be so much fun to write in the show, and I'm very excited to hopefully get to write it."
Netflix still has yet to announce a premiere date for Hearstopper Season 2, but until then we will keep listening to the Heartstopper mixtape on repeat.
