*Warning: Minor season 2 spoilers ahead*
PSA: Nick and Charlie are making a comeback in Heartstopper season three—although we can't say we're too surprised.
The Netflix rom-com, which is based on Alice Oseman's graphic novels and webcomic of the same name, has been praised by critics for its charming cast and positive representation of trans and queer teens. (Just check out the rave reviews on Rotten Tomatoes.) Plus, several cast members have spoken out about why it's such a major hit.
Yasmin Finney, who plays Elle on the series, told Independent, “I think Heartstopper has struck a chord because of the simple fact that trans people didn’t have representation growing up. And even if you’re not queer, it’s just nice to be able to see some positive, youthful, wholesome content. Whether you’re queer or not, it’s a world of positivity and escapism, which I think a lot of people need—especially with the tough time that we’re in.”
