Production has officially wrapped on season one of Love, Simon the series based on the film of the same coming to Disney+.
The series’ star Michael Cimino took to his Instagram story to share the news of the wrap. We’d share the video but it’s on his story which doesn’t share here so we sourced his IG below.
The series will be set in the same world of the film and follows new character Victor (Cimino) on his journey of self-discovery: facing challenges at home, adjusting to a new city, and struggling with his sexual orientation. When it all seems too much, he reaches out to Simon to help him navigate the ups and downs of high school. Rachel Naomi Hilson co-stars as Mia, Victor’s whip-smart friend.
Star of the original film Nick Robinson is on board as producer and narrator of the series. Alongside Michael is Ana Ortiz who plays Victor’s loving mother, James Martinez as 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, and Mason Gooding as Andrew, Creekwood’s cocky and popular basketball-loving jock. Sophia Bush has also joined the cast in a recurring role.
The series comes from Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, who wrote the movie as well. Aptaker and Berger wrote and executive produces the new series. Joining them as executive producers will be Marty Bowen, Isaac Klausner, Pouya Shahbazian, Brian Tanen, Jason Ensler, Adam Fishbach, and Wyck Godfrey. Amy York Rubin directs the first episode of the series while her creative partner, Pilar Boehm, co-executive produces.
The series does not have a release date as of yet but is believed to debut in Fall 2020.
