Heartbreak High was the popular teen drama series of the nineties that saw students tacking racism, human rights and other real-life issues, at the fictional Hartley High.
And now Netflix is doing it all again for a new generation with Netflix’s modern reboot of the classic series.
Actors Josh Heuston and Asher Yasbincek told Daily Mail Australia it was fun to go back to school and play teens in new series.

‘I think [Heartbreak High] was better than my actual high school experience by far,’ said Asher, 25, who plays Harper McLean in the series.
‘We all kind of regressed into this high school mindset and it was a lot of fun,’ she continued.
Meanwhile, Josh Heuston, who plays Dusty Reid, a bisexual rocker, admitted: ‘I definitely wasn’t like Dusty.’
‘I kind of hopped around groups, so was not like him at all.

When asked what it was like playing Dusty, Josh, 25, said: ‘It was good to have representation for that on the show.’
‘Not a lot of Australian television and TV shows in general show it, I think, in the way Heartbreak High does. It was a great experience.’
The new reboot of Heartbreak High will introduce gay and non-binary characters.
