Produced by See-Saw Films the series will take place at a British all-boys grammar school and follows Charlie Spring, who is openly gay, and Nick Nelson, a rugby player, as they develop feelings for one another.

It was previously announced that Joe Locke and Kit Connor have been cast as the Charlie and Nick, respectively. Oseman said in a statement at the time: “Nick and Charlie have existed as characters for almost a decade, and are two of my most beloved characters, so I was slightly apprehensive about the casting search, but I am so happy and excited that we’ve cast Kit and Joe. “They’re both so talented, sweet, funny, and smart, and so perfect.

It has been such fun getting to know them and welcoming them into the Heartstopper universe, and I can’t wait to see them bring the characters to life on screen.” In an announcement on 21 January, Netflix confirmed the rest of the cast that will be appearing in the highly anticipated series.
