With the pair revealing their relationship to the world the young couple can expect more trials and tribulations ahead. We can expect to see the developing relationship between Tao and Elle be explored further in season 2 along with the relationship between Tara and Darcy.

Following its renewal the series went instantly into active development. In late June 2022 we were among the first to report that the series would be eying a September 2022 filming start and were pleased to confirm that filming is now underway. According to some production listings filming will take place from September 13th through December 20th 2022 for season 2.
How many seasons of Heartstopper can we expect to see?
Alice Oseman the creator of Heartstopper the executive producer of the show revealed to the RadioTimes that it could take up to four seasons to cover the full story. I havent done any in-detail planning or anything but its quite easy to divide up the books into seasons so four I think would do it. Four seasons is arguably the perfect number of seasons for Netflix to commit to. If the popularity of the show grows or retains its audience from season 1 then theres no reason why Alice Osemans four-season vision cannot be fulfilled.
