The Netflix series Heartstopper are based on Alice Oseman‘s series of books with the same name.
I was searching my local library online directory just for fun of it, to check what they had to offer in the category of LGBTQ books and then I stumbled on Alice Oseman’s Heartstopper book series and I decided there and then this is a book series definitely I want to read. Then few days later I discovered that Netflix was making a TV series about these books and I was very excited. I’ve since been longing for the premier.
«When gentle Charlie and rugby-loving Nick meet at secondary school, they quickly discover that their unlikely friendship is blossoming into an unexpected romance. Charlie, Nick and their circle of friends must navigate the ever-relatable journey of self discovery and acceptance, supporting each other as they learn to find their most authentic selves».
Yesterday, was a definitely Heartstopper day – I binge watched the whole series, and it was more than what I’ve dreamt it would be! This series are made for teens, but I will claim it’s a series for all ages, I defiantly could recognise the feelings to Charlie and Nick from my own teenage years. Parents should absolute see it too, they will get a good insight in what a teen might go through during teenage years questioning their own sexuality.
All actors has done an incredible job, they’ve made their characters very believable for the viewers. I believe that Netflix has a new LGBTQ hit on their hands once again. Disney, HBO Max and Viaplay should really take notes – LGBTQ content can be a success when it is done well. LGBTQ community all around the world definitely craving for more well made LGBTQ content.
I’m now hoping for a second season, because Heartstopper really deserves more seasons.
Thank you Alice Oseman and Netflix for making this beautiful series.
