The most-watched drama in June on Hulu, Love, Victor, is going to return for season 2!
The coming of age series is based on Becky Albertalli’s young-adult novel Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda and is a spinoff of the 2018 movie Love, Simon. The series was originally supposed to stream on Disney+ but in a semi-controversial move, Disney moved the teen drama to its subsidiary streaming platform, Hulu, on the merits of “strong adult themes” that were too much for Disney+’s platform. But the show has done very well on Hulu receiving a Rotten Tomatoes rating of 93% from critics and 95% from viewers.
The show’s first season cast included Michael Cimino, Ana Ortiz, James Martinez, Isabella Ferreira, Mateo Fernandez, Rachel Naomi Hilson, Bebe Wood, George Sear, Anthony Turpel and Mason Gooding. They captured viewer’s hearts and left us with a huge cliffhanger in the season’s final episode.
Plot details for Love, Victor season 2 aren’t available, but Hulu announced that season 2 will also have 10 episodes and that the second season’s script has been in the writing process for months now. Season 2 will have Victor and his friends maturing and will continue to build on “themes of sexual identity, acceptance, and navigating the odyssey we all know as high school.”
Writers and showrunners of the series Issac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger recently said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that now that they know the series will live on Hulu, it frees the writers up to be “edgier” with its humor in season two. “We lost some jokes that hurt,” Berger said. Added Aptaker: “When we pitched out the second season to Hulu, their first question was, ‘When are the kids going to start having sex?'”
It’s still early so there’s no word on when we can expect Love, Victor season 2 to premiere on Hulu.
