There are so many great and wonderful TV series releasing this year (2022), from dramas such as Roku Original Swimming with Sharks, to comedies like recently released Netflix show Hard Cell. Netflix has a few things landing on its platform, Heartstopper being one of them. 

Heartstopper is an all-new Netflix Original series set to release this month (April, 2022), and is set to make a huge impact upon release due to its interesting and inclusive narrative.

Much like Netflix’s Sex Education, Heartstopper will also be exploring how teenagers deal with learning who they really are, and their exploration of their sexual identities. 

The series follows reserved Charlie (Joe Locke) and rugby-lover Nick (Kit Connor) who meet in secondary school. They realise, somewhat quickly, that their friendship may be turning into something more... 

Charlie, Nick, and their always-supportive group of friends must traverse the difficulties of growing up, especially when not everyone around them is as accepting as their friends.

We will see characters go through situations that many viewers may be able to relate to, such as finding out who you really are in the midst of hard times. 

The boys and their friends will go through a journey of self-discovery, which can be difficult at the best of times, but it seems that none of them are ever alone as they support one another through every twist and turn. 

Joining Locke and Connor in Heartstopper, is William Gao as Tao Xu, Yasmin Finney as Elle Argent, Corinna Brown as Tara Jones, Kizzy Edgell as Darcy Olsson, and Sebastian Croft as Ben Hope.

The new trailer for Heartstopper is a wonderful look at what the forthcoming series will hold. It seems to be an uplifting and memorable story that will be a big hit upon its Netflix debut. 

We see Nick and Charlie constantly swap glances, always say “hi” to one another, and look at each other with adoration and excitement, which is always a wonderful thing. 

Of course, the trailer also shows the downsides, as Nick is teased by his so-called friends for being gay (or so it seems), and Charlie appears to be struggling with his feelings. 

Heartstopper will land exclusively on Netflix on April 22nd, 2022, and will consist of eight 30-minute episodes.
