In a delightful turn of events, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) has secured the UK broadcast free-to-air rights for all three seasons of the beloved coming-of-age dramedy, “Love, Victor”.

About “Love, Victor” TV series

“Love, Victor” serves as a sequel to the cherished 2018 film “Love, Simon” and follows the journey of Victor Salazar, portrayed by Michael Cimino. Victor is a new student at Creekwood High, having recently relocated from rural Texas to Atlanta with his family. His high school experience is compounded by the usual challenges of making friends and fitting in, but he grapples with an additional layer—his exploration of his own sexuality, a sensitive matter in his religious family.

Seeking guidance from Simon (who mainly appears via voice-over but actor Nick Robinson does make a cameo), the protagonist embarks on a transformative journey, embracing his true self and believing in the universal truth that everyone deserves a remarkable love story. What “Love, Victor” does so well is the way in which they portray the bad stuff about being in the closet and coming out alongside the good stuff, effortlessly blending the two so much so that it becomes one huge emotional rollercoaster of a journey.
