We’re getting the first look at Hulu’s upcoming Love, Simon follow-up series, Love, Victor. The clip also reveals the premiere date of June 19.
The series, inspired by the praised 2018 film, centers on Victor (Michael Cimino), a new student at Creekwood High School, the high school featured in the movie, on his own journey of self-discovery, facing challenges at home, adjusting to a new city, and struggling with his sexual orientation. The series depicts alcohol use, parents’ marital issues and sexual exploration.
Cast also includes Ana Ortiz, James Martinez, Isabella Ferreira, Anthony Turpel and newcomer Mateo Fernandez.
Hailed for its LGBTQ inclusivity, the 2018 Love, Simon, based on Becky Albertalli’s young adult novel Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, is a coming-of-age film about Simon, a closeted gay teen growing up in the suburbs of Atlanta.
The half-hour comedy series originally was scheduled to air on Disney+, but moved to the Disney-controlled Hulu streaming service earlier this year.
Love, Victor hails from This Is Us executive producers/co-showrunners Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, who wrote the movie, and 20th Century Fox TV.
