We’re getting the first look at Season 2 of Hulu’s popular teen dramedy Love, Victor.
Season 2 finds a newly out of the closet Victor entering his junior year at Creekwood High — a new chapter that brings with it new challenges. As he navigates his romance with Benji, Victor juggles a family struggling with his coming-out, his heartbroken ex-girlfriend Mia, and the difficulties of being an openly gay star athlete.
Michael Cimino, Rachel Hilson, Anthony Turpel, Bebe Wood, Mason Gooding, George Sear, Isabella Ferreira, Mateo Fernandez, James Martinez, and Ana Ortiz also star.
The film’s original writers Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger serve as executive producers alongside Brian Tanen, Jason Ensler, Isaac Klausner, Marty Bowen, Adam Fishbach, Wyck Godfrey, Pouya Shahbazian and Adam Londy.
Hulu on Thursday released a full trailer for Love, Victor‘s second season, in which Victor navigates his new relationship with Benji while attempting to present as “the perfect level of gay that will keep everyone happy.” Among the people he’s trying to please are his basketball teammates, Benji’s friends and his own parents, who seem to be struggling with Victor’s big news — especially his mom, Isabel.
Meanwhile, Felix and Lake look completely smitten with each other (though Felix’s mom, played by Breaking Bad‘s Betsy Brandt, is still struggling with depression), and Mia’s hopes of rekindling a romance with Andrew are unexpectedly dashed.
The upcoming Love, Victor episodes are the first to be intentionally produced for Hulu; Season 1 was originally filmed for a Disney+ launch, then moved to Hulu when the show’s mature themes reportedly didn’t suit Disney+’s family-friendly approach.
“We’d love to tell sexier stories,” co-showrunner Brian Tanen previously teased. “That’s going to be so much more exciting on a network like Hulu, which, since they’ve adopted us, have been so supportive of the show and incredible partners.”
