Love, Victor was one of the most-watched shows on Hulu about LGBTQ+ people. The teen comedy-drama series, which debuted on June 17, 2020, is based on the popular movie Love, Simon. Set in the same world as Love, Simon, but with different characters, the series follows Victor, a new student at Creekwood High, as he goes through the ups and downs of high school and comes into his own as he figures out his sexuality. Love, Victor has been praised for how well it shows what it’s like to be LGBTQ+, and a lot of that is because it has a great cast.
