Heartbreak High is a smash hit for Netflix, silencing critics who said it was ‘woke’

Heartbreak High’s Netflix reboot surpassed expectations, becoming one of the streaming platform’s most-watched programs worldwide.

The Australian teen drama began airing on September 14 and viewers from around the world – including those unfamiliar with the 1990s television series it is based on – are hooked on the show.

It was the sixth most-watched English-language program worldwide and the second-most-watched in Australia as of mid-September.

The series is most popular in Australia, UK, America and parts of Africa.

The reboot has racked up more than 18 million viewing hours in just two weeks.

The rapid success has silenced those who have been hasty in criticizing the show for saying its diverse cast made it seem “too bright.”

While the cast includes racially mixed, non-binary, and even autistic characters, the strong storylines and sharp writing mean it’s far from just a showcase of diversity.

The original Heartbreak High was a popular 1990’s teen drama set at the fictional Hartley High about racism, human rights, and other real-life issues.

Netflix announced earlier this year that it would be reviving the show for a new generation.

The reboot has been criticized in some quarters as an “awake” update to the ’90s high school drama that made Callan Mulvey and Ada Nicodemou household names.

Que Minh Luu, Netflix’s director of content in Australia and New Zealand, said at the time: “Making heartbreak high for today’s generation of Australians has been a long-standing dream.”

Original Heartbreak High star Salvatore Coco has given his endorsement to the show.

“I thought it was fantastic. There were concerns that it was too ‘awake’. But no, it touched on the issues and wasn’t in your face,” he said on the TV black box podcast.
