Heartstopper Netflix Adaptation (2022): Everything We Know So Far About The Sweet New Series

The Heartstopper Netflix adaptation is a really cool project where the original source material started as a web comic by Alice Oseman. It has since been published as graphic novel issues as another way to read the story but fans can’t wait to see it on screen.

About The Book: Charlie Spring is in Year 10 at Truham Grammar School for Boys. The past year hasn’t been too great, but at least he’s not being bullied anymore. Nick Nelson is in Year 11 and on the school rugby team. He’s heard a little about Charlie – the kid who was outed last year and bullied for a few months – but he’s never had the opportunity to talk to him until one day they are made to sit together in class.
 
They quickly become friends, and soon Charlie is falling hard for Nick, even though he doesn’t think he has a chance. But love works in surprising ways, and Nick is more interested in Charlie than either of them realized. Heartstopper is about love, friendship, loyalty, and mental illness. It encompasses all the small stories of Nick and Charlie’s lives that together make something larger.
