Heartstopper is a Netflix original series based on Alice Oseman’s graphic books about two British teenagers, Nick Nelson and Charlie Spring, who attend an all-boys grammar school. Charlie, a high-strung, openly gay overthinker, and Nick, a happy, soft-hearted rugby player, are forced to sit next to each other in class one day.
For openly gay Charlie, their friendship quickly evolves into something more, but he initially doubts his chances with Nick. However, love has an unexpected way of working, and Nick is more interested in Charlie than any of them thought. Love, friendship, loyalty, and mental illness are all themes in Heartstopper. It contains all of Nick and Charlie’s minor stories that add up to something bigger.
