Warning: Spoilers ahead. Ever since Love, Victor hit Hulu in June 2020, fans have been seriously obsessed with the Love, Simon spinoff series. The coming-of-age series starred Michael Cimino, George Sear, Anthony Turpel, Rachel Naomi Hilson, Bebe Wood and Mason Gooding, and followed Victor, a new student at Creekwood High School, as he was on a journey of self-discovery. The teen faced challenges at home, learned to adjust to life in a new city and explored his sexual orientation. When it all seemed too much, he reached out to Simon to help him navigate the ups and downs of high school.
“The response has been nothing but positive from what I’ve seen,” George told Attitude magazine in February 2021. “It’s really nice and touching getting messages from people who’ve watched the show and it’s resonated with them.”
Now that fans are gearing up for the second season, what can they expect to see? Well, according to a June 2021 interview with Good Morning America, Michael said, “This season is definitely more about Victor discovering what being gay means to him and what it means to the rest of the world.”
He continued, “Now it’s kind of talking about the dynamic that he has between both his parents — because he has one parent that is really accepting and one parent that is struggling with the fact that they love their religion but also love their child.”
When discussing the show as a whole, Michael said, “Anybody could kind of watch this and get a different point of view from it, whether you’re a parent or a child.”
“I think that’s important, especially for kids that watch the show with their parents,” the actor said. “Parents will possibly be like, OK, well now I understand the POV from my child — and the children will understand the POV from their parents.”
Previously, showrunner Isaac Aptaker teased the upcoming episodes while chatting with Entertainment Tonight in June 2020 and said there are plans to have season 2 test Victor and Benji’s relationship. “Season 2 is really about him declaring the most honest, real version of himself to the world and figuring out how him being who he truly is fits into the rest of his life,” he shared at the time.
Of course, viewers also want to know if Nick Robinson will be making another surprise return as Simon! Will he be coming back? The cast may have spilled some tea! Scroll through our gallery for everything you need to know about Love, Victor season 2 so far.
