Heartstopper Season 2: What to expect in the new season?
While most of the information about the next season has been kept secret, fans may get a preview of what’s to come by reading Volume 3 of Alice Oseman’s acclaimed graphic novel series. The second season of Heartstopper is based on Volume 3, which builds a solid base for new viewers to get an idea about the plot. We would like to mention that there would be a lot of additional material created because there isn’t enough in the book to fill an entire television season.
Fortunately, the network has also released a short synopsis, which gives a glimpse into the second season and follows: “Nick and Charlie navigate their new relationship, Tara and Darcy face unforeseen challenges, and Tao and Elle work out if they can ever be more than just friends. With exams on the horizon, a school trip to Paris, and a prom to plan, the gang has a lot to juggle as they journey through the next stages of life, love, and friendship.”
The main cast members are as follows Kit Connor as Nick Nelson, Joe Locke as Charlie Spring, William Gao as Tao Xu, Yasmin Finney as Elle Argent, Tobie Donovan as Isaac Henderson, Jenny Walser as Tori Spring, Sebastian Croft as Ben Hope, Corinna Brown as Tara Jones, Kizzy Edgell as Darcy Olsson, Cormac Hyde-Corrin as Harry Greene, Rhea Norwood as Imogen Heaney, Stephen Fry as the voice of Headmaster Barnes, Fisayo Akinade as Mr. Ajayi, Chetna Pandya as Coach Singh, and Olivia Colman as Sarah Nelson.
The recurring cast members which include some new members for the second season are as follows Leila Khan as Sahar Zahid, Bradley Riches as James McEwan, Jack Barton as David Nelson, Bel Priestly as Naomi, Ash Self as Felix, and Thibault de Montalembert as Stephane Nelson. On the other hand, the show is developed and produced out of the U.K along with Top of the Lake producer See-Saw Films is the producer.
