The popular teen dramedy returns as season two finds a newly out of the closet Victor entering his junior year at Creekwood High. But being out brings with it new challenges, as Victor faces a family struggling with his revelation, a heartbroken ex-girlfriend in Mia, and the difficulties of being an openly gay star athlete — all while navigating the excitement of his relationship with Benji.
The series stars Michael Cimino, Rachel Hilson, Anthony Turpel, Bebe Wood, Mason Gooding, George Sear, Isabella Ferreira, Mateo Fernandez, James Martinez, and Ana Ortiz.
The film’s original writers Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger serving as executive producers alongside Adam Londy, Brian Tanen, Jason Ensler, Isaac Klausner, Marty Bowen, Adam Fishbach, Wyck Godfrey, and Pouya Shahbazia.
Season 2 of Love Victor is everything you would want it to be. What a great LGBTQIA Teen/Young Adult series this is turning out to be!
Victor is finally out of the closet. He comes out to his family and to his schoolmates.
As expected, the show does deal with a few social issues, but not overly so.
Victors mother has some issues concerning the religious attitude toward homosexuality, and a few of the guys on the basketball team have that locker room jock mentality, also they touch on some mental health conditions of one of the boy’s mothers.
To see Simon’s dad Jack Spier (Josh Duhamel) turn up in the show as a PFLAG sponsor was a pleasant surprise, and Simon Spier himself (Nick Robinson) makes another appearance once this season.
The way this season is dealing with sex, virginity, and that “first time” is both hilarious and sweet. But it is also the reason Disney decided to move the show from the flagship streaming services to the more adult-oriented (18+) Hulu.
