One of Netflix’s most eagerly awaited live-action adaptations of Alice Oseman’s webcomic and graphic novel series, Heartstopper, will be releasing in less than a week. Based on Volume 1 of Oseman’s work, the Netflix eight-part series tells a wonderful boy-meets-boy queer love story. The show is an adaptation of the Heartstopper book series, exploring identity, friendship, mental health, and love.
So if you want to read the series before watching the show. Here are all the necessary details for you to start reading the books.
In which order should you read the Heartstopper book series
Alice Oseman, an award-winning YA novelist, has developed a series of graphic novels called the Heartstopper volumes. The stories present a beautiful coming-of-age narrative about Charlie and Nick as they “meet, become friends, and start to fall in love.”
There are four novels in the series so far, and we recommend reading them in order. Hopefully, it’s self-evident that the best approach to read the series is in the sequence in which the volumes are published.
So start with Heartstopper Volume One (2018), then move on to Heartstopper Volume Two (2019), Heartstopper Volume Three (2020). Finally, you end it with Heartstopper Volume Four (2021). Click on the link to buy the whole set!
What about season 2 of the show?
Despite the fact that neither Netflix nor the series’ creator has acknowledged anything, we feel Heartstopper has a high chance of becoming a long-running series.
After all, since season 1 is based on volume 1 of the graphic novels. Therefore, it stands to reason that volumes 2 through 4 might get their own adaptations as well.
That, however, is conditional on how fans react after the first eight episodes are available on the streaming service on Friday, April 22. But we have a feeling, fans will love the series, given how Heartstopper is for everyone.
We will be seeing a lot of fresh new faces in the Netflix series. The show put together a remarkable set of actors that fans will be delighted to see as the show releases. Some of the stars of the show are Tao (William Gao) and Elle (Yasmin Finney) and couple Tara (Corinna Brown) and Darcy (Kizzy Edgell), including of course Nick (Kit Connor) and Charlie (Joe Locke).
