Most teen romances don't last. Will this one?

Heartstopper may only be entering its second season, but stars Kit Connor and Joe Locke are already looking to the future for their characters.

The first season of the Netflix series saw Charlie (Locke) fall for rugby player Nick (Connor), and the latter come to terms with his own sexuality and his feelings for Charlie. The next season, which premieres on August 3, will delve deeper into their burgeoning relationship.

There’s already a roadmap for how their story will continue—the series is based on the web comics/graphic novels of the same name, and writer Alice Oseman has been adapting the live-action series to largely stay faithful to her original work.

But there are still two volumes of the graphic novels left to be released, and the story so far has only seen the boys navigating school life. Most teenage romances don’t last, but the beautiful thing about fiction is that it doesn’t have to follow the same rules as reality. Will Charlie and Nick manage to build a life together as adults?

The actors say yes.

“The hope would certainly be that they’re still together,” Connor recently told The New York Times.

Locke seemed more confident, suggesting they would not only still be together, but have children and create a family.

“They’re meant for each other,” Connor added. “Happy would be nice.”

“Yeah. Just happy,” Locke agreed.

Oseman did previously give fans a short glimpse into the future with her novella Nick and Charlie, but even that only goes so far as seeing Nick leaving for university. Whether or not she writes a hint of a life for the two of them beyond that in one medium or another remains to be seen, but for now, Connor and Locke having a positive outlook on what’s to come might be enough.

Season one of Heartstopper is currently streaming on Netflix.
