May 20 (UPI) -- Popular LGBTQ+ series Heartstopper will return for two more seasons on Netflix.
The streaming service confirmed Friday that it renewed the teen drama-romantic comedy series for Seasons 2 and 3.
Heartstopper is based on the Alice Oseman webcomic and graphic novel of the same name. The series centers on Nick Nelson (Kit Connor) and Charlie Spring (Joe Locke), two classmates who develop a romance.
"We were overjoyed with the global reaction to Heartstopper and can't wait to continue the story with two more seasons. Watch this space!" Oseman told Netflix's Tudum.
The author previously said Heartstopper is about "celebrating queer joy."
"I hope that it just makes people smile and brightens their day -- but I also hope that it inspires, particularly, young queer people to believe that they can find happiness and find romance and find friendship," she said.
Netflix's Heartstopper is written by Oseman and directed by Euros Lyn. The series also stars William Gao, Yasmin Finney, Corinna Brown, Kizzy Edgell, Tobie Donovan, Stephen Fry and Olivia Colman.
Season 1 premiered in April.
