Congratulations to the cast and crew of “Heartstopper” as the series took home the awards for BEST LGBTQ TV SHOW!
The show was up against some big names and still came out on top!
The show beat:
Hacks (HBO Max)
The Other Two (HBO Max)
Our Flag Means Death (HBO Max)
Somebody Somewhere (HBO)
RuPaul’s Drag Race (VH1)
While the show won, Kit Connor did lose an award to Melanie Lynskey, Yellowjackets for Best TV Performance but that’s okay because they all deserved it.
The first season of Heartstopper follows Charlie, who meets rugby-loving Nick in secondary school, and they soon realize that their unlikely friendship is growing into an unexpected romance. Charlie, Nick, and their friends must negotiate the universally familiar journey of self-discovery and acceptance, supporting one another as they learn to be their most true selves.
The first season was adapted from the first two volumes of the graphic novel by Alice Oseman. The second season is likely to be based on the third and fourth volumes, in which Nick and Charlie encounter their first real relationship problems, and they experience and try to overcome personal challenges, respectively. There are a total of six volumes in the graphic novel series.
Fans can expect Season 2 of Heartstopper sometime in 2023.
