In a video shared to their instagram on April 4th, Alice Oseman said: ‘I am really excited to be announcing details on Heartstopper Volume 5 and revealing Volume 6 for the very first time! Heartstopper Volume 5 will follow the gang as they look towards the future. Charlie is starting to find confidence in who he is and what he wants but Nick is having a bit of a crisis with his Uni choices. Is he going to go far away or stay somewhere near to Charlie? We’ll see! When I started working on Volume 5, I was struggling with where the story was going but I finally figured it out – I was trying to fit too much into one volume! I realised that I needed to properly explore how Nick and Charlie’s relationship progresses and give all the characters their moment to really shine. So, that’s how we landed on Volume 5 AND a surprise Volume 6 – I really hope you’re excited to see a bit more from Heartstopper and I can’t wait for everyone to get their hands on Volume 5!’
The U.S. edition of Volume 05 is scheduled to be released December 19th, 2023!
