Love, Simon was one of 2018’s most discussed and celebrated films. Following both commercial and critical success, made-for-TV series based on the film was put into development at Disney+. However, as first revealed on the Hulu Twitter account, the series, with its first season already complete, will move from Disney+ to the Hulu streaming service.
The series, now titled Love, Victor, wrapped production on its first season in December. It will reportedly premiere on Hulu during June, which also happens to be Pride Month.
The new series will star Michael Cimino in the titular role of Victor. It takes place in the same world as the film but will focus on Victor’s journey of finding himself. Victor will be forced to address issues like sexuality, the divorce of his parents, and adjusting to a new city mid-high school. Sources close to the series claim the script features more adult themes and the powers-that-be at Disney felt more comfortable moving it to its Hulu service.
Love, Simon screenwriters Elizabeth Berger and Isaac Aptaker will serve as showrunners for the series alongside Dan Fogelman (This Is Us). Additionally, the cast includes Ana Ortiz, James Martinez, and Mateo Fernandez. Moreover, Love, Simon star Nick Robinson will return as an executive producer.
