Hop in everyone, we're going back to Hartley High. Netflix has just announced a second season of Heartbreak High (the reboot), which shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who witnessed that dramatic ending in the Harry's Cafe de Wheels car park. So what does season 2 of Heartbreak High have in store for us? Find all the details, below.

What will season 2 of Heartbreak High be about?

Anyone that polished off the series will know that Heartbreak High left us with a handful of cliffhangers and loose ends. And before you yell about spoilers, you had your chance. The series spent three weeks in the global top 10 shows on Netflix, and held onto that ranking in Australia for five weeks. Teenagers in Timbuktu have seen it at this point. So if you haven't, you need to sit down and have a hard conversation with yourself. Anyway, I digress.

The show ended by disclosing the true nature of Harper's home life, with her dad's addiction troubles, and the details of that harrowing night after the festival. Police track down Ca$h, but not before he professes his love for Darren. We find out why Spider is so salty towards Amerie and Quinni stands up for herself. Amerie reunites with Harper and the two set the chief lad's car on fire. Meanwhile Malakai begins his own healing process. As for Dusty? That man remains just as hot and emotionally challenged as ever. Oh, and Jojo comes back!

Although few details about plot for season 2 have been released, we can imagine the next chapter of Heartbreak High will use these cliffhangers as a launching pad. Will 'Sluts' continue? Who knows. Will Ca$h return? We sure hope so. To be completely honest though, as long as the outfits keep us gagged, we would sit and watch them launch pink dildos at basketball hoops for a whole season.


After the series aired, one of the most common compliments was about its casting. We were obsessed with the dynamic between James Majoos and Will McDonald, Chloe Hayden delivered one of the most authentic representations of autism we've seen on screen, and Thomas Weatherall is pure sunshine.

With this in mind, we've got our fingers crossed that these folks along with the rest of the wonderful cast, including Ayesha Madon, Asher Yasbincek, Josh Heuston, Gemma Chua-Tran, the inimitable Rachel House, Chika Ikogwe, Sherry-Lee Watson, Bryn Chapman-Parish and Brodie Townsend appear in season 2. Possibly with a few newcomers? We'd love to see some size diversity on screen too.

Release date

Given that season 2 of Heartbreak High has only just been confirmed, there is no release date we know of yet. More on this as it develops! Maybe. Let's see how I feel.
