It appears to be a lengthy wait. Netflix confirmed in January 2021 that production on Heartstopper has begun.

Heartstopper is based on Alice Oseman’s graphic books and follows schoolboys Nick Nelson and Charlie Spring as they meet for the first time after being forced to sit together in class.

“Nick and Charlie have existed as characters for nearly a decade and are two of my most favourite characters, so I was a little nervous about the casting search, but I am overjoyed and pleased that we’ve cast Kit and Joe,” Alice Oseman said.

“They’re both incredibly brilliant, sweet, hilarious, and intelligent, and they’re absolutely wonderful. It’s been a pleasure getting to know them and welcoming them into the Heartstopper universe, and I’m looking forward to seeing them bring the characters to life on screen.”
