Heartbreak High has been officially renewed for season 3. The renewal came just shy of a month after season 2’s release, which is in line with how long Netflix tends to wait before announcing a new season. Official word of season two of Heartbreak High also came only a month after the release of season 1. Of the season 3 renewal, Netflix director of content ANZ, Que Minh Luu, stated:

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 favorite 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.

The cast of Heartbreak High season 3 will most likely see the entire main cast returning, which includes Ayesha Madon (Amerie Wadia), James Majoos (Darren Rivers), Chloe Hayden (Quinni Gallagher-Jones), Will McDonald (Douglas Piggott), Asher Yasbineck (Harper McLean), and more.

If you’re new to Heartbreak High, it was an Australian TV show adapted from the 1987 play The Heartbreak Kid. The TV show first released on February 27, 1994 and was created by Michael Jenkins and Ben Gannon. The story follows a group of high school students living their teen lives at Hartley High, a somewhat racially diverse school. The original show went into serious topics like poverty, sexuality, and identity.

Netflix’s Heartbreak High is a reboot of the 1994 show, following a similar path in tackling teen topics, though with different circumstances and characters. A group of students have their sex lives revealed in graffiti etched on the wall at school, which gets them all sent to a mandatory Sexual Literacy Tutorial sex education course. Amerie Wadia is soon revealed to be the author of the “incest map,” which makes her a controversial pariah in the school.
