‘Heartbreak High’ Season 3 is Officially Happening!

Netflix has announced it has renewed hit Aussie drama Heartbreak High for season 3 (woohoo!) but this will also be the last one (nooooo!).

In a press release, the streaming service said: “Oi SLTs, don’t pack away your Lynx Africa or TNs just yet because Heartbreak High will return for a third and final season — roll out the celebratory chippies!”

And while this will be the last time we see the gang altogether at Hartley High, it sounds like we’re in for quite a ride. Confirming the news on Instagram, actor Chloe Hayden who portrays Quinni on the show, posted: “We’re praying year 12 formal goes smoother than the year 11 one and have every finger crossed we get into the courses we want.”

If you caught season 2, you’ll know that Year 11 formal did not end well…

Fellow star, Thomas Weatherall who plays Malakai in the series, teased fans with a hilarious video saying it’s time to finally reveal what was in *that* letter to Amerie:



(As it turns out, he doesn’t reveal anything about the letter at all, instead confirming the news of a third season!)

“She never got the letter,” Netflix Director of Content ANZ Que Minh Luu says in a statement, “but now we get to see what happens next! Renewing Heartbreak High for its final season is a major point of pride for us at Netflix. It has been a joy to work with the utterly cooked creative minds behind our favourite Aussie YA show and to bring our stories, our culture and our in-jokes to all the fans here at home and throughout the world. See you at muck up day.”

Carly Heaton, Fremantle Head of Scripted says, “We are beyond excited to all come together again as we love existing in the craziness of Hartley High. We aimed to create a show where Aussie young people are seen and heard and we are completely overwhelmed by the worldwide reaction to the stories of these characters. All of us who work on the series are grateful to have the opportunity to see what kind of mess evolves in season three.”

The news comes after the second season was released on April 11 and became a smash hit on Netflix – top 10 in Australia and top 10 English TV series globally. The series has previously won an International Emmy, while Thomas Weatherall won the 2023 Logie for Outstanding Supporting Actor and the 2022 AACTA too!

The big question now is, when will Heartbreak High season 3 be released? 

No info on that just yet, but stay tuned!
