Hulu has released the trailer for the second season of its original series “Love, Victor”.
Created by Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, the show is set in the world of the 2018 groundbreaking film “Love, Simon,” which was inspired by Becky Albertalli’s acclaimed novel “Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda,” and revolves around Victor (Michael Cimino), a new student at Creekwood High School (in Atlanta) who moved from Texas and has a lot to deal with, from adjusting to a new city and facing challenges at home to exploring his sexual orientation. According to the official synopsis, “When it all seems too much, he reaches out to Simon to help him navigate the ups and downs of high school”.
The cast also includes Ana Ortiz, James Martinez, Isabella Ferreira, Mateo Fernandez, Rachel Naomi Hilson, Bebe Wood, George Sear, Anthony Turpel, and Mason Gooding.
The next season revolves around Victor’s relationship with Benji, “literally the most gorgeous guy in Creekwood”, and more. The trailer opens with Victor revealing to his family that he is gay and gives viewers a glimpse at his struggles as he tries to find “the right level of gay that will keep everyone happy”. In one of the scenes, he says he’s ready to tell the world and not hide anymore who he is, but he needs to deal with his mom’s feeling about his sexual orientation.
“On June 11, fear less, love more” onscreen lines read at the end of the trailer, which features the 2021 single “If I Didn’t Have You” by Liverpool-based BANNERS, fronted by Michael Nelson.
