“You guys have been absolutely hounding me to know what was in the letter that Malakai left for Amerie. The very good people at Netflix have allowed me to share with you guys this letter today,” he says in the video, brandishing a note addressed to Ayesha Madon’s character. When he opens it, it reads “SZN 3 SLTS the final year!” inside.

“One more year,” Weatherall adds. “We’re back.”

Per Netflix’s official relase, “Season 3 will see the talented cast and creators reassemble in Sydney (Gadigal, Dharug, Dharawal and Ku-ring-gai lands), Australia for the final year at Hartley High.”

TVLine recently called Heartbreak High the “deliciously messy teen drama we’ve been missing in the genre.” (Read the full commentary.)

In a statement, Que Minh Luu, Netflix Director of Content ANZ Que Minh Luu, said, “[Amerie] never got the letter, but now we get to see what happens next! Renewing Heartbreak High for its final season is a major point of pride for us at Netflix. It has been a joy to work with the utterly cooked creative minds behind our favourite Aussie YA show and to bring our stories, our culture and our in-jokes to all the fans here at home and throughout the world. See you at muck-up day.”

Carly Heaton, head of scripted at Fremantle (which produces the series), added via statement: “We are beyond excited to all come together again as we love existing in the craziness of Hartley High. We aimed to create a show where Aussie young people are seen and heard and we are completely overwhelmed by the worldwide reaction to the stories of these characters. All of us who work on the series are grateful to have the opportunity to see what kind of mess evolves in Season 3.”
