A gay nerd, a rugby lad, and a whole lot of drama, no wonder why the first volume of Alice Oseman’s LGBT+ romance webcomic, Heartstopper, became a favorite on Netflix.

With only 8 episodes lasting less than 30 minutes it is easy to catch up on this beloved new show on Netflix.

“Boy meets boy. Boys become friends. Boys fall in love. When gentle Charlie and rugby-loving Nick meet at secondary school, they quickly discover that their unlikely friendship is blossoming into an unexpected romance. Charlie, Nick and their circle of friends must navigate the ever-relatable journey of self discovery and acceptance, supporting each other as they learn to find their most authentic selves.”

Heartstopper is now streaming on Netflix.
