Hold onto your seats, Heartstopper fans, because Joe Locke is spilling the tea on what’s coming next, and honey, it sounds like a rollercoaster ride of emotions! 🎢💖 Our beloved queer heartthrob has been dishing out some tantalizing tidbits about the much-anticipated season three of the hit Netflix LGBTQ+ drama, Heartstopper, and it’s shaping up to be a season you won’t want to miss.

Now, for those who might not have had the pleasure, Joe Locke, our 20-year-old sensation, has been making waves not just on screen but also on stage with his Broadway debut. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Let’s dive into the deets of what Joe has been teasing about Heartstopper’s next chapter.

According to our darling Joe, things are about to get a tad “raunchier” and “darker” in the upcoming season. 🌗 Talking on The Today Show, he hinted at a more mature turn in the storyline. Now, if you’ve been following Alice Oseman’s adorable queer teen series, you know it’s all about the sweet, evolving love story between Charlie and his boyfriend Nick Nelson. And guess what? They’re about to take things to the next level. 😘

“It’s coming out this year,” Locke confirmed. “Every season of our show, we grow up with the characters more and this season is definitely a bit raunchier”.

Volume Five of Oseman’s graphic novel series already gave us a sneak peek into Charlie and Nick’s journey towards intimacy, complete with all the awkward, heartwarming, and important moments that come with it. And it looks like season three is not shying away from these pivotal moments.

But it’s not all about the lovey-dovey stuff. Joe also mentioned that the upcoming season would tackle some pretty heavy topics, including mental health issues. It’s a reminder that Heartstopper isn’t just about the highs of young love but also about the real challenges that come with growing up, especially for LGBTQ+ youth.

“It’s still Heartstopper,” Locke said. “But it’s also that we deal with some darker issues. “Charlie, my character – he deals with some quite severe mental health issues, which we tackle in this season, which I’m very excited for people to see.”

The end of season two left us all on a cliffhanger that had us clutching our pearls. Will Charlie’s heartfelt “I love you” message reach Nick? Well, Netflix’s little breadcrumb about the first episode of season three being titled “Love” has us all hoping for a swoon-worthy resolution.

So, as we eagerly await Heartstopper season three, let’s send all our love and support to Joe Locke, who’s truly living his best life and bringing some much-needed representation and heart to the screen and stage. Here’s to more love, more drama, and, of course, more Heartstopper! 💕🏳️‍🌈
