Love, Victor is a TV spinoff to the 2018 film Love, Simon and it's narrated by Nick Robinson (Simon) from the original movie.
In April 2019, Disney+ confirmed that they were ordering a series based on Love, Simon with the team behind the film. If that weren't exciting enough, Nick Robinson (Simon) signed on to produce and narrate the series. However, in February, Disney+ faced backlash after dropping Love, Victor over its "adult" content. Hulu picked it up though and it comes out June 19th.
Now, Hulu have released the trailer and not only is it heartwarming but it also features a surprise Keiynan Lonsdale cameo.
Love, Victor tells the story of a teen boy named Victor, who moves to Atlanta and transfers to Creekwood High where Simon went to school. Struggling with his sexuality, Victor reaches out to Simon via email (yes, just like how Simon and Bram used to communicate) and Simon helps him navigate school and adolescence. Newcomer Michael Cimino stars as Victor.
In the first Love, Victor teaser, we saw Victor flirting with a mystery character called Benji (George Sear) and the official trailer expands on that. Victor meets Benji for the first time, he makes friends with Lake (Bebe Wood), gets close with Mia (Rachel Naomi Hilson) and opens up to Simon about his fears of coming out to his family. Ana Ortiz (who previously played Betty's sister Hilda in Ugly Betty) plays his mum.
On top of that, the trailer contains cameos from RuPaul's Drag Race legend Katya, 13 Reasons Why actor Tommy Dorfman and Keiynan Lonsdale, who played Simon's love interest Bram in Love, Simon.
Naturally, fans are losing it and some have even started speculating that Victor will visit Simon and Bram together in New York in the series.
Bring on June 19th. We cannot wait to watch this!
