Talk about sending your fans into meltdown…

13 Reasons Why stars Miles Heizer and Brandon Flynn seemingly play a gay couple in an new short film, which sees them share a tender kiss.

The visual – titled Home Movies – surfaced on social media earlier week, and immediately sent fans of the Netflix show into frenzy.

Miles plays Alex Standall in the series, while Brandon Flynn is misunderstood bad boy Justin Foley.

The short film will do little to squash ongoing rumours that the two are in a relationship in real life. Especially with gifs like these…

Fans convinced themselves last month that Miles and Brandon were dating, using their close relationship on Instagram as the basis of their suspicions.

However, a rep for the stars confirmed that the rumours are untrue.

“This is a false report,” they said. “Miles and Brandon are friends from the show but are not dating.”

Meanwhile, 13 Reasons Why was renewed for a second series by Netflix, after the resounding popularity of the first run back in March.
