'Love, Simon' Series Makes Official Move from Disney Plus to Hulu & Gets New Title!

Disney Plus’ Love, Simon series is making a move!

The show was originally set to air on Disney Plus but will now launch on Hulu instead, according to Variety.

In addition, the series will now be titled Love, Victor. It focuses on lead Michael Cimino‘s character Victor, a new student at Creekwood High School — the same high school as the movie — on his own journey of self-discovery, facing challenges at home, adjusting to a new city, and struggling with his sexual orientation.

The 10-episode first season will debut on Hulu in June, which is Pride Month. According to an individual with knowledge of the situation, Hulu has opened a writers’ room to begin fleshing out a potential second season. Sources also note that Disney felt many issues explored on the show, including alcohol use and sexual exploration, would not fit in with the family-friendly content on Disney Plus.

Original movie star Nick Robinson will narrate the half-hour series in addition to serving as producer. Sophia Bush is also set to star in a recurring role in Love, Victor.
