Heartbreak High has been renewed for a third and final season

Heartbreak High fans, we've got some good news and some bad news...

The good being that your favourite caravanserai of Aussie high schoolers like Amerie, Harper, Darren and more will be returning for a third season of the hit Netflix show. The sad news is that the streaming platform has confirmed it will be the final season of the show.

Releasing a video to the Heartbreak High Instagram account this morning, the show announced the news this morning...

"We are beyond excited to all come together again as we love existing in the craziness of Hartley High," said Carly Heaton, head of Fremantle Australia. "We aimed to create a show where Aussie young people are seen and heard and we are completely overwhelmed by the worldwide reaction to the stories of these characters. All of us who work on the series are grateful to have the opportunity to see what kind of mess evolves in season three."

When Heartbreak High Season 2 premiered on Netflix in early April this year, it once again one of the streaming platform's most popular shows, debuting at #1 in Australian and staying in the Global Top 10 English TV series list for three consecutive weeks. So while we're excited to see an all-Aussie production be renewed for another season, we're of course also sad to see some of our favourite characters leave our screens forever.


What will Heartbreak High season 3 be about?

All we know so far is that Season 3 will see the usual cast and creators reassemble in Sydney (Gadigal, Dharug, Dharawal and Ku-ring-gai lands), Australia for the final year at Hartley High.

"She [Amerie] never got the letter - but now we get to see what happens next!" said Que Minh Luu, Netflix Director of Content ANZ. "Renewing Heartbreak High for its final season is a major point of pride for us at Netflix. It has been a joy to work with the utterly cooked creative minds behind our favourite Aussie YA show and to bring our stories, our culture and our in-jokes to all the fans here at home and throughout the world. See you at muck up day."


When will season 3 be released?

There's no news on when production will begin for Heartbreak High Season 3, but if Season 2 was anything to go by, we might have to wait until later next year (2025) to see any episodes. (Hopefully no further SAG-AAFTRA striking will be necessary in the meantime to delay this season too.)
