Netflix really proves time, and again how diversified its content is. You can find anything on the streaming giant. And continuing on the tradition of surprising us all, Netflix announced a new romantic and coming-of-age series Heartstopper. Netflix announced the series a while back and also announced that cast, but recently, they introduced two characters from the show, and we all are excited and nothing less.
Newest characters in Heartstopper by Netflix
Just when we thought that Netflix could not put together a better ensemble of characters in the new show, Heartstopper, they decided to prove us otherwise.
In a new tweet by Netflix, they have introduced us to two new additions to the show.

Issac and Imogen (Rhea Norwood) are the newest in the show. Netflix not only gave us their names but also made us a little aware of the new characters.
Issac is a friend of Charlie Spring. And Imogen is Nick’s friend. So just from their friendship, we can understand that they are going to be an integral part of the show as they are friends of the show’s main protagonist.
Furthermore, we get to know their age: Issac being 15 and Imogen 16. Issac has an INTP personality, meaning he is introverted, intuitive, thinking, and perceiving, which can be supported by the fact that he only opens up around a few people.
While Imogen has an extroverted, intuitive, feeling, and prospecting personality type. This means that, in a way, they are opposites of each other. Moreover, it is revealed that Imogen has a crush on someone. We wonder who it might be?
What is the show about?
Heartstopper is based on Alice Oseman’s popular webcomic of the same name. It tells the story of an unforeseen relationship between two high school students and the obstacles they experience along the road.
Charlie Spring (Joe Locke) is a shy student in an all-boys grammar school. He is the only openly gay student, making him a target for homophobic bullies. He develops feelings for dynamic rugby player Nick Nelson (Kit Connor), whom he sits next to every morning, but he doesn’t believe his emotions will be returned.
We will have to wait and see how big of a role these two new characters will play in the show. Heartstopper starts streaming on Netflix on April 22nd.
