This autumn, the Australian high school drama Heartbreak High will make a triumphant return to UK television, much to the delight of fans of pop culture nostalgia. In a new eight-part series, we’re getting more modern plotlines that reflect society today. Instead of airing on the BBC, the new series—whose debut was notable for featuring actors like Callan Mulvey and Ada Nicodemou from Home and Away—will be available on Netflix. Heartbreak High’s initial run enjoyed success on a global scale and was broadcast in the UK for three years, from 1996 to 1999. What can we anticipate from the new episodes, though? Here is all the information we currently have about Heartbreak High.
According to Hannah Carroll Chapman, the series creator, the reboot has “a life of its own.” She said, according to Variety, “I’m hoping that there’s a nice balance there, that people who love the original show feel the essence of that show,” while speaking at the Screen Forever trade conference in March. But it’s primarily for a younger generation, she continued.
