Alice Oseman has revealed exciting information about the final volume of Heartstopper.

Back in April 2023, the Solitaire author announced that the sixth instalment of the popular comic series would be its last.

“SOME NEWS! Heartstopper Volume 5 will be released on November 9th 2023, in the UK/Ireland/Australia/New Zealand.. and there will be a Vol 6, the final Heartstopper volume,” they wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Over the last year, Oseman has kept relatively quiet about the forthcoming volume – until now.

During a Q&A session on their Tumblr page (3o May), the Radio Silence writer admitted to feeling “pretty good” about the forthcoming project – adding that they’ve finished the story’s first draft, minus the art.

“Everyone who’s read it has had really positive responses,” Oseman added. “I’m gonna make some tweaks to it, and then I’ll be starting to draw pretty soon! Which is the fun bit!”

In a separate question, Oseman was asked if the equally popular Netflix series would adapt volume six, to which they replied, “If we get a season 4, it will be in season 4!”

While volume six is still in the works, fans won’t have to wait too long for new Heartstopper content.

On 13 May, Netflix announced that the show’s highly anticipated third season will premiere on 3 October.

In addition to the release date, the streamer shared an adorable clip from the new batch of episodes, which showcases Charlie (Joe Locke) and Nick (Kit Connor) saying “hi” (very out of character) before respectively complimenting each other’s cap and cut off shirt.

The official synopsis for the season reads: “Charlie would like to tell Nick that he loves him. Nick also has something important to say to Charlie.

“As the summer holiday ends and the months race on, the friends begin to realise that the school year will come with both its joys and its challenges.

“As they learn more about each other and their relationships, plan social events and parties and start thinking about university choices, everyone must learn to lean on those they love when life doesn’t go to plan.”

Season three will also see the return of Yasmin Finney as Elle, William Gao as Tao, Corinna Brown as Tara, Kizzy Edgell as Darcy and Tobie Donovan as Isaac.

More star power incoming: Jenny Walser as Tori, Cormac Hyde-Corrin as Harry, Rhea Norwood as Imogen, Fisayo Akinade as Nathan, Chetna Pandya as Coach Singh and Bradley Riches as James.

Sadly, Sebastian Croft (Ben Hope) and Olivia Colman (Sarah Nelson) will not be joining them, with the latter recently confirming that she couldn’t “fit it in to her busy schedule.
