Hulu’s series based on the 2018 movie Love, Simon, Love, Victor is back. The series, which is basically the movie but was made in TV form. We follow new student at Creekwood High School, Victor (Michael Cimino), as he struggles with his sexual orientation, comes out to his family, makes friends at a new school and falls in love with the cute Benji (George Sear).
At the end of the season, Victor came to his parents to get the man. Love, Victor will be back for a second season. Based on the trailer for Love, Victor season 2? The Hulu series will let us crawl through it instead of just enjoying the series. It just seems a bit overwrought and cliché. Haven’t we been through this a million times before?
What can we expect from Love, Victor season 2?
Are you ready to drink that Drama (™) juice? Because Hulu is bringing it with the truckload in Season 2. According to TVLine, “Love, Victor will pick up at the start of Victor’s junior year at Creekwood High. Victor will just come out and face new challenges such as his family struggling with his revelation, a heartbroken Mia, and the difficulties of being an openly gay star athlete, all while experiencing the excitement of his newfound relationship Benji balances. “
In addition, Victor faces the breakup of his parents, which they announced at the end of Season 1. He also thought it would be a great idea to come to his family after that announcement. Which, uh, read the room there, Victor. Read the room. Either way, it sounds like there is just endless drama in it Love, Victor season 2 when it returns to Hulu.
How cringe is the trailer?
Cringe quite a bit. The answer is that the Love, Victor trailer is quite cringe. Maybe we’re no longer the audience for teen dramas, but wow, this just seems overwrought, overly juicy and overly sentimental. It’s, well, cliche. The whole thing feels like things we’ve seen before. (Maybe we’re also exhausted that all LGBTQ + stories are from stories too? Hard to say.)
Either way, we’ll make sure Victor & Benji are lit. exactly like that and they watch each one of them walking through Creekwood High School. Lake (Bebe Wood) declares Benji “the prettiest man in Creekwood High,” which is uncomfortable. It’s awkward. Don’t call your friend’s boyfriend hot, girl. Mia (Rachel Hilson) deals with the revelation that the man she was in love with is gay.
Which, uh, poor girl. But again, it’s a plot that’s played out in no time. Hilson is a good actor. She deserves better than this overplayed plot device. Not to mention that Victor’s parents are struggling with his disclosure that he’s coming out. Again, should every story be a coming out story? Do it?
Should I watch Love, Victor season 2 on Hulu?
Check out whatever show you want. We can admit, however, that we can’t handle the trailer shrinking Love, Victor. It seems … exaggerated. As if it takes bits of other stories from teenage dramas and turns them into an overly sentimental mess along with these characters. It is not something that speaks to our soul. And again, did we really need a bearded storyline? In 2021?
But don’t let our opinion stop you from enjoying the show. When you love, you have more power. We hope you enjoy it. If you don’t, will we feel your pain? We want the hype to go away so we can forget that we have to suffer through the trailer.
Love, Victor season 2 will be streaming on Hulu on June 11.
