A hit Netflix drama is set to film in Maidenhead next month.

Heartstopper is a coming-of-age romance following two school boys as they realise their friendship may be something more.

Netflix released the second season of the show in August, with a third on its way with an expected release of late 2024.

The show has previously been filmed across Berkshire and Buckinghamshire, with notable locations used such as the now-empty E-ACT Burnham Park Academy

Windsor was also a key location in the first season, with an address on St Marks Road acting as the main character, Charlie's home.

We later see characters walk along Windsor and Eton Riverside along the Thames Path and at Baths Island & Pleasure Ground.

Norfolk Park Stores in Maidenhead features twice in the show.

And the Observer can now reveal Maidenhead is to see film crews resume the production of Heartstopper in the town, starting at the set of one of the main character's homes.

Filming is expected to take place in October in the town. 

Council leader Simon Werner, from the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, welcomed the news. He said: “I’m delighted to see Netflix return to the Royal Borough to film Heartstopper.

"This is a high-profile production and, as a council, we’ve worked hard to develop and promote a film-friendly environment. 

"This helps support our local economy, promotes the area as a destination and, in turn, attracts visitors to our borough. 

"We’re liaising with Netflix on this production and since January we’ve supported 43 productions to film in our borough.”
