Heartstopper on Netflix. Connor portrays Nick Nelson, a rugby star whose friendship with openly gay Charlie Spring (Joe Locke) slowly blossoms into a romantic connection.During the first season, Nick comes out as bisexual to his mother (Olivia Coleman) in an incredibly moving scene, and fans have begun speculating on social media whether or not Connor would do the same in real life — and the actor has seen the online theorizing.Taking to Twitter, Connor responded to the conversations. “Twitter is so funny man,” he wrote, “apparently some people on here know my sexuality better than I do…” Connor was effectively shutting down the conversation in a gentle but firm way.

Fans were quick to rally to the actor’s side. Heartstopper debuted to rave reviews (it has a 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes) from critics and fans alike, and they’re eagerly awaiting news on whether the show will be picked up for a second season.

Creator Alice Oseman has hopes for a sophomore run where they can explore “darker issues” while still “keeping the tone so optimistic and hopeful,” she told Digital Spy.Executive producer Patrick Walters is also eager to return, sharing with PinkNews that the show’s cast and creators would “love a second season.”“Given there are more books in the series there’s more source material to adapt,” Walters said.
