Season 2 of “Heartstopper” made use of different places in England to bring its scenes to life. Twickenham Studios in London was one of the most important places, and a hotel in Slough, Berkshire, was important for many scenes. The hotel was where both on-campus and off-campus Truham events took place, as well as the GCSE afterparty.
Numerous sequences in the second season of “Heartstopper” were captured in Slough, a town situated in Berkshire, England, approximately 20 miles to the west of central London. This encompasses scenes both within and in the vicinity of Truham.
E-Act Park Burnham Academy, England
Truham Grammar School’s interiors are brought to life at Kent’s Herne Bay High School, while E-Act Burnham Park Academy in Buckinghamshire stands in for the school’s exteriors.
Farnham was an important part of filming the second season of “Heartstopper.” This market town and civil parish is located about 36 miles southwest of London in the English county of Surrey.
The second season has eight episodes, all of which are accessible on Netflix.
Season 2 of “Heartstopper” continues to fascinate viewers by delving further into the lives of Nick and Charlie as they negotiate the pleasures and difficulties of their blossoming relationship. Their pals accompany them on their voyage as they face high school prom and a Parisian vacation.
The show’s original decision to situate crucial events amid the lovely background of Paris enhances the intriguing plot, which is backed by its varied and sympathetic characters. This choice adds complexity to the story and portrays the characters’ development as they go outside the comforts of Truham.
