Love, Victor start time, channel

Love, Victor (all 10 episodes) is now out, having released at 12:01 a.m. Eastern today (Wednesday, June 17) on Hulu.

Celebrate Pride Month and watch Love, Victor online, as it just dropped on Hulu today (June 17) The new Hulu series is a spinoff of the groundbreaking 2018 film Love, Simon, which told the coming-of-age story of a gay teen in Atlanta. 

Love, Victor follows the same formula, but with a different central character. Victor (Michael Cimino) is a new student at Creekwood High School. While adjusting to his new town, Victor is also undertaking his own journey of self-discovery as he struggles with his sexual orientation. He reaches out to Simon (Nick Robinson, returning as narrator) for help and support.

Love, Victor is the kind of sweet, moving, realistic teen drama that any streaming service would love to have. It was originally developed for Disney Plus, but the service punted the show to its corporate streaming sibling (Disney also owns Hulu). It seems Disney Plus executives felt that certain material (alcohol use and sexual exploration) was not appropriate for the family-friendly streamer. Hulu, meanwhile, has several originals about teens, like PEN15 and Looking for Alaska, that explore more adult topics.
