Although Netflix is experiencing a particular crisis with subscriber losses that will increase throughout this year, the truth is that it continues to release original content both in the form of movies and series that are delighting its subscribers, and the latest heart stopper is a British teen romance series that is going to dazzle you.
And it is that if we thought what series could come out between combining the sensations and experiences of the acclaimed ted lasso and the successful euphoria surely we would have no idea what could come out, but now everything makes sense after the recent premiere of Heartstopper on Netflix.
In the official synopsis of Heartstopper it is commented that “Teenagers Charlie and Nick discover their friendship could be so much more than that as they grapple with school and love in this series about coming of age.”, a British drama that is based on the self-published webcomic by Alice Osseman.
However, the series continues Charlie played by Joe Locke, a 14-year-old boy who is turning 15 in a British school. He then meets Nick played by Kit Connor, a classmate where a friendship arises that little by little turns into romance.
And it is that the series premiered at the end of April on Netflix and is already a success, where viewers watched it for almost 24 million hours in the week between April 25 and May 1.
Basically the series combines the reality of today’s teenagers from Euphoria but with the optimism that we see in Ted Lasso. In this way, Heartstopper tackles issues such as bullying, homophobia, and the general anguish that can come from those very complicated ages.
