Hulu announced that it has renewed freshman series Love, Victor for a second season. They high school set gay romantic comedy is a spin-off of the 2018 theatrical film Love, Simon.
The series is set about a year or so after Love, Simon with some of the film’s characters making cameos throughout the first season. Love, Simon star Nick Robinson narrates the series and serves as one of the executive producers.
The first season was sweet and mostly dealt with Victor’s internal conflict about his sexuality. Although the titular character is half Puerto Rican, half Colombian and boasts a diverse cast, the show didn’t feel very diverse in it’s presentation of stories. In fact, the most disappointing thing for me was the way the show presented long-held tropes about Latinos and homosexuality. Hopefully, season two will address the challenges a POC face not only in society, but within the gay community.
The streamer also announced it would not go forward with a second season of freshman series High Fidelity, based on the film of the same name. The show starred Zoe Kravitz (Big Little Lies).
Here’s a look at a pivotal moment from the first season of Love, Victor.
