Hulu has confirmed that Love, Victor will return for season 2 this summer. Created by Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, the teen-romance drama serves as a televised spin-off to Love, Simon, the 2018 smash-hit rom-com adapted from Becky Albertalli’s 2015 novel Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda. In the new show, Annabelle Comes Home alum Michael Cimino stars as the titular Victor Salazar, a half Puerto Rican, half Colombian-American teenager grappling with his sexual orientation while struggling to adjust to his new life and new high school in Atlanta. Love, Victor premiered to great success on Hulu in June 2020, with fans and critics praising it for sincerely honoring its img material. The show was the most-watched on its streaming service in its debut week, which quickly led to its renewal for season 2.
Now, TV Line has reported that Love, Victor season 2 will premiere on Hulu on June 11, 2021. All episodes of the sophomore iteration will bow together on the streamer, capturing the events in Victor’s life after season 1’s explosive finale. As per season 2’s logline, after coming out of the closet, Victor will now face some fresh challenges, including his parents’ struggles with his sexuality, Mia’s devastation, and the pressures of being a gay star athlete. But amid all these troubles, Victor will also find solace in his new relationship with Benji. Since this is the first of the show’s seasons being made intentionally for Hulu (season 1 was originally made for Disney+ but later moved to Hulu), season 2 will depict more adult stories and daring plotlines than season 1.
With season 2 less than a year after its freshman run, the Love, Victor season 1 finale ending, where Victor came out before his parents, will soon be resolved. The entire first season was built around how Armando and Isabel would react to Victor’s sexuality, but the finale cut out before his parents could react. Now a bolder and more dramatic story lies ahead for viewers as not only will Victor’s romance with Benji be in full swing, but its immediate implications will also be greatly felt. Hopefully, Love, Victor season 2 will give fans the a fun summertime watch and Hulu will quickly pick up the show for season 3.
