Good news to all who enjoyed the first season of Heartbreak High! Netflix has just renewed the Australian comedy drama for a season 2.
This is not unexpected, especially since the show was able to earn mover 42.6 million viewing hours in the first three weeks since it was released. And this means viewers have more to look forward to in the classic show.
Here's what we know about Heartbreak High Season 2 right now:
When Is Heartbreak High Season 2 Release Date?
As of this writing, there is no word yet on when Heartbreak High Season 2 will be released. The show just got renewed by Netflix so it will take some time before the show starts filming. Fortunately, production is set to resume in Sydney anytime now.
The show's producer, Carly Heaton, spoke to The Hollywood Reporter regarding the show's surprising success:
"I had to step away from the internet for a few days, because there was just so much coming in -- particularly locally. But it's all been phenomenal.
This is the first time an Australian scripted show has had the ability to go out on a platform globally like this. Netflix kept warning us, but I don't think we were prepared for what that would be like. You know, kids finding my number and email and hitting me up with calls to tell me how much they love it. It's been absolutely overwhelming -- in the most delightful of ways."
What Is the Original Heartbreak High About?
The original Heartbreak High series aired between 1994 and 1999. Apart from being an Australian production, the show earned a solid fan base in the UK.
The show follows the lives of the students and teachers of Hartley High as they face the usual struggles of high school -- racial tensions, romances, and teen angst.
The first season circled on the discovery of wall graffiti in school that details the students' sexual exploits. Because of this, the students whose names were written in the graffiti were were forced to join a sex-ed course called Sexual Literacy Tutorial.
