There’s more love in Michael Cimino’s future…
Hulu has ordered a second season of its breakout new series Love, Victor, starring the 20-year-old half-Puerto Rican actor.
The series, an offshoot of the 2018 feature Love, Simon, ranked as the No. 1 most-watched drama on Hulu during its premiere week in June when all episodes were released together.
The series hails from This Is Usexecutive producers/co-showrunners Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, who wrote the movie based on Becky Albertalli’s young adult novel Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda.
Love, Victor migrated to Hulu after being originally developed at Disney+.
The first season followed Victor (Cimino), a new student at Creekwood High School, on his own journey of self-discovery, facing challenges at home, adjusting to a new city and exploring his sexual orientation. As Victor and his friends mature, so will season two, promising to build on these themes of sexual identity, acceptance and navigating the odyssey we all know as high school.
In addition to Cimino, the series also stars Ana Ortiz, James Martinez, Isabella Ferreira, Mateo Fernandez, Rachel Naomi Hilson, Bebe Wood, George Sear, Anthony Turpel and Mason Gooding.
20th Century Fox Television is the studio.
