Heartbreak High has been renewed for a second season on Netflix

Be still, our beating hearts because the Aussie smash hit TV show Heartbreak High has been renewed by Netflix for a second season.

The news will be music to the ears of fans of the '90s reboot. School is back in session, baby!

While we don't have a date for the second season - calm down, the news has only just broken - Netflix has teased there are some great things in store for viewers.

If you haven't yet seen it, Netflix describes Heartbreak High as 'inspired by the original '90s series, but totally reimagined for a new generation'.

The show has been likened Degrassi High and will no doubt spark a lot of joy that the show will get a modern twist.

It's a high school drama that is dripping with nostalgia, but comes with a generous helping of modern issues kids now face.

It's a palpably real depiction of life as an Aussie teen right now, which is likely why it has resonated so broadly across the nation.

What we do know about the second season is that it will be filmed in in Sydney on Gadigal, Dharug, Dharawal and Ku-ring-gai lands.

Aussie teams will also be used for pre-production and filming, just as they were in season one.

Season two will be produced by television companies Fremantle Australia and NewBe.

It's also touted to be welcoming back its incredible cast - and hopefully some new faces, too - for the next school year.

In a Netflix press statement, the streaming service raved about just how much the show popped off... and not just in Australia.

Since the first season premiered on September 14, it has sat comfortably in Australia's top 10 TV shows for a massive five weeks.

It racked up more than 42.6 million hours viewed in three weeks and made Netflix's top 10 TV shows in a huge 43 countries.

Pretty impressive for the little Aussie reboot that could.

Netflix also used TikTok to their advantage (because they're down with the kids), with their social hashtag #heartbreakhigh amassing more than 300 million views.

Golly, no wonder they renewed it. It's a total home run when you put it like that.

As the smash hit show was based on the iconic '90s series of the same name, there is plenty to look forward to as the original show wrapped up after seven incredible seasons.

Heartbreak High star Will McDonald, who plays Cash, said prior to the season one release: "I think audiences can expect a lot of really new Australian stories that have never been told before and a lot of characters that we've never seen on Australian TV before.

"I'm really excited to see how people respond to that, these characters and these storylines that have probably never been touched on in Australian TV."

Well, you were on the money there, Cash.
