The series is most popular in Australia, Great Britain, the United States, and parts of Africa.

The reboot has racked up over 18 million hours of viewing in just two weeks.

Its rapid success silences those who criticized the show prematurely because its diverse cast made it seem ‘too awake’.

While the cast features mixed race, non-binary, and even autistic characters, the strong stories and sharp writing mean it’s far from just a showcase of diversity.

The original Heartbreak High was a popular teen drama in the 1990s, set at the fictional Hartley High, with plots dealing with racism, human rights, and other real-life issues.

Netflix announced earlier this year that it was reviving the show for a new generation.

The reboot had been criticized in some circles as an update on the ’90s high school drama that made Callan Mulvey and Ada Nicodemou household names.

Which Minh Luu, Netflix’s Australia and New Zealand chief content officer, said at the time: “Making Heartbreak High for the current generation of Australians has been a long-standing dream.”

Original Heartbreak High star Salvatore Coco has given the show his thumbs up.

‘I thought it was fantastic. There were concerns that he was too “woke up”. But no, he touched the songs and it was not in your face,’ he said in the TV Black Box Podcast.
