Netflix has reportedly quietly renewed the Heartbreak High reboot in Australia for a second season.
According to The Sunday Telegraph, the streaming giant’s bosses are keen to capitalize on Heartbreak High’s overwhelming success after becoming a global hit on the platform.
The hit, which was inspired by the 1990s cult series of the same name, peaked at number six on the streaming giant’s most-streamed show worldwide, and achieved top ten status in 43 countries around the world.

The series, set in an Australian high school, has been viewed 18,250,000 times in the last week alone.
The series is most popular in Australia, UK, America and parts of Africa.
The show’s rapid success has silenced those who have been hasty in criticizing the show for saying its diverse cast made it appear “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 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. It turned many young actors into stars, including Ada Nicodemou and Salvatore Coco (pictured).
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.
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.
The Australian teen drama began airing on September 14 and has fans around the world – including those unfamiliar with the 1990s TV series it is based on – hooked on the show
