Heartbreak High Season 2: The Cast Reveal What Teen Issues Are Explored This Time

It’s time to get back to class, kids. Heartbreak High Season 2 is about to release on Aussie television screens, which means it’s time to dust off your notebooks and get prepared. If you’re keen to catch the upcoming season of the popular Aussie series, here’s everything you need to know.

Heartbreak High Season 2: What’s the story?


Picking up from where we left off in Season 1, the new year at Hartley High is looking like it’ll be as wild as the first. Here’s the synopsis of Heartbreak High Season 2, as shared by Netflix:

All our heroes are back for Term Two at the “lowest ranking school in the district.” But fresh hotties, a new sports teacher and a mystery assailant, throw any hopes for a peaceful term into disarray, while the race for school captain is seeing dirty tactics run rife through Hartley High. Yep… It’s Term 2 bitches, and it’s more chaotic than ever. 

If you’re in need of a refresher for Season 1, here’s what we wrote about it when Season 2 was first confirmed:

Season 1 saw Amerie become an instant pariah at Hartley High after the secret map of sexual encounters, which she and her best friend Harper put together, was made public. The revelation also caused a friendship break-up between the two girls and caused Amerie to turn to new friends, like Quinni and Darren, as she tried to repair her reputation.

The end of Season 1 saw Amerie and Harper resolve their fight, but Ca$h wasn’t in such a good place after the finale. We’ll no doubt see the ramifications of all that’s happened in Season 2.

We also have some teases from the Heartbreak High cast about what’s to come in the new season which can you take a peek at below.

What issues are explored in Heartbreak High Season 2?

“It’s a continuation of the same themes from Season 1, just extended,” James Majoos who stars as Darren told Lifehacker AU.

“Identity. The nature of friendship and [the] boundaries around it. Love and all the different forms that it can take on,” Will McDonald (aka Ca$h) added.

For Chloè Hayden who plays Quinni it was “learning how to stay true to yourself, and learning how to stand up for yourself, and learning how to be a person.”

Sherry-Lee Watson, who has a bigger role this season as Missy, said Season 2 is “centered around masculinity and how the young men in the cast are interacting with their values and what a change in cultural landscape looks like in 2023/2024. A lot of it is revolving around their journeys and their mindsets and how our characters are either supporting or not supporting those discoveries.”

Bryn Chapman Parish, who plays series villain Spider, echoed his castmates, saying Season 2 is about “love” and “establishing the values you want to start living by in that time turning from a teenager into an adult”.

Rachel House and Chika Ikogwe will also return as staff members Woodsy and Jojo.

One character who gets a major storyline this season is Chapman Parish’s Spider:

“It was such a joy to go from one end of the spectrum to the other, to the middle. The writers did such a good job with his arc this season… [Spider’s arc] is very open-ended. He’s still super flawed, he’s still figuring stuff out by the end of the season,” he said.

Are there any new cast members?

We have some fresh faces joining the school in 2024; those include Angus Sampson as the Head of P.E., Timothy Voss, Kartanya Maynard as celibacy-focused student Zoe Clarke, and Sam Rechner in the role of Rowan Callaghan – a cinema-loving country boy.

“The addition of Coach Voss has been really a joy to watch. That was really exciting and adds a nice dynamic to Hartley High” Majoos said of Angus Sampson’s new teacher.

Heartbreak High Season 2 trailers

Take a peek at what you can expect from Season 2 of Heartbreak High with the trailer below. Featuring horny students, a “classic love triangle” and a huge fire, the next season looks like it’s going to bring a whole lot of drama to our screens.

And if you want to revisit Season 1, you can take a peek at the trailer for that one here:

Will there be a Season 3?

As for future seasons? Nothing is confirmed by Netflix as of right now, but you can see what the cast is hoping to do (which we 100 per cent support) in Season 3 below.

“If there was a Season 3 I’d love to explore what Missy’s home life looks like. We know she’s got brothers, [I’d love to see] how that influences how she conducts herself. She’s very staunch when she wants to be but also very vulnerable when she needs to be. I’d love to see where that dynamic comes from,” Watson said of her hopes for another season.

“[I’d like to see] a furthering of what they started to unpack in this season, Spider realising he doesn’t have to have so many masks up and that he can actually navigate the world in a different way,” Chapman Parish added.

Fingers crossed we get to see it! Go and support the show by streaming it on Netflix now!
