With the reboot of Heartbreak High in production, it won’t be long enough till we get to see another fun-filled drama of Hartley High, a place where drama is made, and friendships are broken. The drama show first premiered in the 90s, and it got so popular as it evoked strong and serious discussions like how it was growing up in the premillennial times.
The show delved into topics considered taboos, such as sexuality, race and it created a platform for more transparent communication. Now that these topics are so open in the millennial world, a reboot of the series seems like the perfect idea, considering how teens relate to almost every topic considered as taboos in the past. With all the hype and pomp, will the series have the same effect the original one did?
