'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.

The show will be set in the same world as the movie, and original movie star Nick Robinson will narrate the half-hour series in addition to serving as producer.

Sophia will play Veronica, Mia’s (Rachel Naomi Hilson) father’s new girlfriend. Chic and sophisticated, runs a non-profit devoted to helping women. Friendly and easy to like but can be strong-willed and tough when she needs to be, Deadline reports.

'Annabelle Comes Home' Star Michael Cimino To Star in Disney Plus's 'Love Simon' Series

Michael Cimino has signed on to star in the lead role of Disney Plus’s Love, Simon series.

The Annabelle Comes Home actor will play Victor, a new student at Creekwood High School on his own 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, Variety reports.

Michael joins Ana Ortiz, who will play Victor’s mother Isabel, and original movie star Nick Robinson, who will narrate the half-hour series in addition to serving as producer.

Other young stars joining the series include: James Martinez as Armando, Victor’s regular blue collar “guy’s guy” father who loves his family deeply and works hard for his family; Isabella Ferreira as Pilar, Victor’s sullen younger sister in the throws of teenage angst, and Mateo Fernandez will make his acting debut as Adrian, Victor’s adorable, good-natured little brother.

Johnny Sequoyah as Mia, Victor’s whip-smart friend with a quick wit and easy laugh; 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 have also joined the series.

Love, Simon is a KNOCKOUT. There are so many important stories that don’t get made. I am so grateful this one did. ❤️ I had absolutely nothing to do with the making of this movie—I just have a huge crush on it and I’d like to share the love. Minneapolis, please enjoy a screening of Love, Simon this Sunday on me. :) Enjoy!” Kristen wrote on her Instagram.

Neil added, “So my husband David (@dbelicious) and I enjoyed @lovesimonmovie so much, we wanted to pay it forward. Others are doing this, and I’m so on board. So we bought out a screening at a theatre in my hometown of Albuquerque, NM for this Sunday afternoon. It’s free, and a great chance to see this wonderful film. Hope you can make it!”
