Heartstopper has dropped its first teaser trailer for its Netlfix series and honestly, it looks like the kind of quality LGBTQ+ content this writer needed growing up. Based on the serialized and ongoing webcomic by Alice Oseman, it tells the story of the blossoming relationship between two teenage boys.
Nick Nelson and Charlie Spring are two students at an all-boys grammar school who go through a journey grounded in love, friendship, life, and mental illness. The Netflix series follows the same beats and the trailer, according to readers of the comic, feels like it was pulled right from the pages of this popular story.
Check out the official synopsis for Heartstopper here:
Boy meets boy. Boys become friends. Boys fall in love. 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.
