Netflix’s teen Australian reboot of Heartbreak High was released in September 2022 but will it return for a second season? Early reports suggested the show had been renewed in early October, and now we have official confirmation. Here’s what we know abou ‘Heartbreak High Season 2’ on Netflix.
Rebooting the 90s show (available in full in most regions of Netflix around the globe), Heartbreak High is a modernized high school romance drama comparable to Netflix’s other titles in the genre, such as Elite and this year’s Heartstopper.
First announced in December 2020, the series was eventually released on September 14th, 2022.
It was released to high critical praise, with many reviews praising the diversity with characters from different races, genders, and disabilities represented.
On October 19th, Netflix Australia confirmed that we’d return for a second season.
Per a press release:“School is officially back in session, as Netflix has announced Heartbreak High will return for Season 2.Produced by Fremantle Australia and NewBe, season 2 of Heartbreak High will see the talented cast and creators reassemble in Sydney (Gadigal, Dharug, Dharawal and Ku-ring-gai lands), Australia for pre-production and filming.”
As you’ll see below, the series had a rough start on Netflix, failing to perform well beyond the borders of Austalia.
