Love, Victor, which was originally being developed for Disney+ before moving to Hulu, will stream its third and final season on Disney+ as well as the first and second season June 15, Variety has learned.
Love, Victor features more adult themes, including sexuality and alcohol use, studio executives felt it was better suited for Hulu and not the more family-friendly Disney+. The decision ultimately sent fans into a frenzy, as this wasn’t the first LGBTQ-themed series booted off Disney+ following the canned Four Dads series and High Fidelity. Now, Disney is somewhat writing their wrongs, which is wonderful to see.
“We are proud of ‘Love, Victor’ and are excited to bring it to the widest possible audience on June 15 by making the full series available on both Disney+ and Hulu to celebrate the final season and LGBTQIA+ Pride Month,” Hulu president Joe Earley said in a statement on Tuesday. “In addition to highlighting this groundbreaking series, this will give subscribers a chance to sample more content that is available across our streaming services as we have done with titles like the Academy Award-winning ‘Summer of Soul (…Or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised),’ ‘Man in the Arena: Tom Brady’ and ‘black-ish.’”
Star of the original film Nick Robinson is a producer and narrator of the series. Michael Cimino stars as Victor, Alongside Michael is Ana Ortiz who plays Victor’s loving mother, James Martinez is Armando, Victor’s father. Mateo Fernandez as Adrian, Victor’s adorable, good-natured little brother, Bebe Wood as Lake, Mia’s quirky and social media-obsessed best friend, George Sear as Benji, Victor’s confident and charming classmate, Anthony Turpel as Felix, Victor’s lanky, awkward new neighbor, Mason Gooding as Andrew, Creekwood’s cocky and popular basketball-loving jock, and Betsy Brandt as Dawn, Felix’s loving mother who struggles with various mental health issues.
