Season 2, released on April 11, premiered as one of the most popular shows both in Australia and around the world on Netflix. It debuted at #1 in Australia and stayed on the Global Top 10 English TV Series list  for three consecutive weeks. The evolving love triangles, new students and iconic one-liners had #HeartbreakHigh reaching over 2 billion views on TikTok. 

Season 3 will see the talented cast and creators reassemble in Sydney (Gadigal, Dharug, Dharawal and Ku-ring-gai lands), Australia for the final year at Hartley High.

Netflix Director of Content ANZ Que Minh Luu says, “She never got the letter – but now we get to see what happens next! 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.” 

Carly Heaton, Fremantle Head of Scripted says, “We are beyond excited to all come together again as we love existing in the craziness of Hartley High. 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.”

The latest season of Heartbreak High joins the growing slate of homegrown Australian films and shows on Netflix, including Boy Swallows Universe, Run Rabbit Run, Wellmania, Surviving Summer, ONEFOUR: Against All Odds, Love is in the Air and more.
