Sadly, it looks like the YA Hulu series Love, Victor will be ending with its upcoming third and final season, which will premiere on June 15th. It seems that the announcement was initially done at the Television Critics Association. The series was initially planned as part of Disney+’s launch line-up, but was surprisingly deemed “too adult” for the family-focused streaming service and moved to the Disney-owned Hulu. No word has been shared on why it was decided to end the series with its upcoming third season.
The project was a spinoff of Love, Simon that focused on a new student to Creekwood High, Victor Salazar (Michael Cimino). It follows the same core narrative, as our protagonist uncovers his sexuality and trying to embrace who he truly is. The titular Simon (Nick Robinson) from the original series also had a recurring role as Victor’s mentor throughout the series. Of course, college on the horizon adds that additional pressure.
The writers of the original film, Isaac Aptaker, and Elizabeth Berger, took on the role of executive producers and got developed by 20th Television, as it became part of Disney Television Studios. It’s a shame that the heartfelt series is ending after only three seasons, but it seems that they may manage to end it on their own terms without building up a season 4 only to get the axe. It may even open the possibility of more spinoffs focusing on other characters moving forward. Perhaps Victor may grow into someone else’s mentor.
