As nationwide protests against racial inequality continue, you’ve probably noticed that corporations are on high alert when it comes to anything involving race in America. Today’s example: Hulu initially planned to have the Taste the Nation and Love, Victor premiere date fall on June 19 this year, but this morning, the streaming service announced that it would be shifting those dates in order to give this year’s Juneteenth “its own day in the spotlight.” If you’re not sure what Juneteenth is all about, you can read up on it below.

Back in 2018, 20th Century Fox gave us the coming-of-age teen romance Love, Simon. It was your average romantic comedy about a young kid trying to figure out his place in the world as he deals with the trials and tribulations of being a teenager, but it followed the journey of a young gay kid named Simon (Nick Robinson). It wasn’t exactly innovative with the storytelling, but that’s also what made it a little groundbreaking. It was a traditional romantic comedy that gave a queer relationship the spotlight.
Now Hulu is following in the footsteps of Love, Simon with a new series called Love, Victor, which also follows a closeted gay teen (Michael Cimino) as he makes his way through a new high school, making friends, and coming to terms with his sexual orientation. A new Love, Victor trailer has arrived, and it echoes a lot of the style and energy from Love, Simon, but Victor may have a somewhat more difficult time coming out. Read More »
A series spin-off of the teenage romance feature film Love, Simon was originally destined for premiere on Disney+. However, the series apparently turned out to be a little too adult-oriented for the family friendly streaming service (you know, the one that has a movie about a man having sex with a mermaid), and it made the jump to Hulu. Now a first look at the series titled Love, Victor has made its way online in the form of a teaser clip of the show’s main character partaking in a nervously flirtatious coffee shop job interview that gets pretty steamy. Who knew making coffee could be so tantalizing? Read More »
The Love, Simon TV series has a new streaming home and a new name. The half-hour comedy series based on the 2018 teen LGBTQ romantic-comedy has now been moved from Disney+ to Hulu, with the new title Love, Victor, named after the show’s new protagonist. Love, Victor, which will premiere on Hulu during Pride Month this year, was initially set to debut on Disney+, but was reportedly deemed inappropriate for the family-friendly streaming service.
