Fans react to ‘Love, Victor’ Season 2 trailer
Love, Victor has a strong fan base and when the season 1 trailer was released it wasn’t long before they started commenting on the preview. The excitement for the second season was palpable on social media as viewers left their reactions to the sneak peek.
“OMG! Victor and Benji are the most beautiful couple ever. The second season is not yet released but I already feel that I need the season 3, 4, 5, 6…,” a fan commented on YouTube.
“I love how it’s the father that’s more supportive than the mom. It’s a nice change from the tropes they always do in shows and movies,” a viewer added.
“I can already tell that this will destroy me once again. The trailer already did. Can’t wait,” a YouTube subscriber said.
“Honestly, this season [is] going to be much better cause coming out is tough but dealing with what happens after is just as hard,” another fan mentioned.
“I feel like this one might actually have more emotional weight than the first one,” another viewer commented.
“I’ve been waiting for this trailer as if my life depends on it and now I need to wait 3 more weeks,” another YouTube user added.
What is ‘Love, Victor’ about?
The Hulu series Love, Victor is based on the movie Love, Simon that starred Nick Robinson in 2018. This movie was also an adaptation of Becky Arlbertalli’s book series Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda.
Love, Simon is credited as being the first mainstream gay love story. The Greg Berlanti directed film is in the same vein as romantic comedies from the past like Can’t Hardly Wait, 10 Things I Hate About You, Clueless, and more.
The movie was so successful that a spinoff series was commissioned by Disney+. However, when it was announced to launch, it was moved to Hulu due to its themes of sexual exploration and alcohol use. Disney+ believed the show was better suited for Hulu in the U.S. despite the show being made available on the former internationally.
