Netflix has confirmed its latest TV reboot, bringing back Heartbreak High – one of the most popular Australian teen dramas of years gone by.
The streaming giant is resurrecting the 90s favourite for eight new episodes in 2022.
The original series tackled some of the biggest issues facing young adults, including racism and human rights.
The likes of Ada Nicodemou and Callan Mulvey began their careers on the drama, which ran from 1994 to 1999 on Channel Ten and the ABC.
Netflix’s Director of Originals in Australia, Que Minh Luu, said in an official statement [via the Daily Mail]: ‘The new Heartbreak High is for young people in Australia today, showcasing their stories, senses of humour and aesthetics to the world, and reminding everyone that they are much, much cooler than us.
‘It’s also for the 90s kids, fans of the original series who remember what it’s like to feel understood by a TV show, then racking off.’
Stars of the show Ada and Callan went on to appear in Home and Away and Captain America respectively.
Luke Jacobz, Lara Cox, Jeremy Lindsay Taylor, Salvatore Coco and Danny Raco also starred on the show.
The reboot will be produced by Fremantle Australia and Dutch company NewBe in Sydney.Credit: Original article published here.
