Hulu made the announcement at this week’s Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour, along with a description of what high school drama will be awaiting Victor (Michael Camino) in the new episodes:
Season 2 picks up with a newly out-of-the-closet Victor entering his junior year at Creekwood High. However, being out brings new challenges as Victor faces a family struggling with his revelation, a heartbroken ex-girlfriend in Mia (Rachel Naomi Hilson), and the difficulties of being an openly gay star athlete — all while navigating the excitement of his new relationship with Benji (George Sear).
When Love, Victor was renewed back in August, co-showrunner Brian Tanen said the series’ writers plan to “push the envelope” in Season 2 now that the show is intentionally being produced for Hulu.
As NewNowNext previously reported, the series — which is set in the same universe as the groundbreaking 2018 rom-com Love, Simon — was originally slated to debut on Disney+. It ended up on Hulu and became the streamer’s most watched drama during its premiere week last June.
“For me, it’s a gigantic win that we are on Hulu moving forward. It opens our ability to tell more adult stories,” Tanen revealed after the first season premiered. “We’d love to tell sexier stories. That’s going to be so much more exciting on a network like Hulu, which, since they’ve adopted us, have been so supportive of the show and incredible partners.”
