Hulu canceled one of its original drama series after just three seasons. Deadline reports that Love, Victor will end this year, after season 3. The show’s final eight episodes are set to debut on June 15. The outlet added that the news was revealed by Hulu as part of the streamer’s TCA presentation on Tuesday.
Love, Victor is a spin-off of the film Love, Simon. It follows the story of Victor Salazar (Michael Cimino), a Creekwood High student who has just moved to Atlanta, Georgia with his family from their old home in rural Texas. Victor is forced to navigate the rocky seas of teenage life, including learning more about his own sexuality and religious beliefs. He eventually seeks advice and insight from Simon, but eventually begins to chart his own course. Besides Cimino, the cast of Love, Victor also includes Rachel Hilson, Bebe Wood, Anthony Turpel, Mason Gooding, Isabella Ferreira, Mateo Fernandez, George Sear, James Martinez, Ana Ortiz, Anthony Keyvan and Ava Capri.

In 2021, Cimino sat down with News Feed to discuss Love, Victor, and he reflected on when he auditioned for the role. “We actually read some scenes from Love, Simon, but also just a few fictional scenes,” he recalls. “They really didn’t use any of the scenes that we actually had when auditioning for the show. But that was just to give us an idea of what was going on in the show and stuff like that.”
He then discussed filming Victor’s big exit moment, its impact on the show, and working opposite Ortiz, who plays his mother. “Honestly, it was really awesome. Ana is a phenomenal actress and she’s really killing it this season. She really gets to explore a different side that I think she didn’t get to explore with characters in the past,” he said.
Cimino continued, “You know, she’s always been a very supportive LGBTQ parent, like on Ugly Betty. Now she’s playing the complete opposite side of the spectrum, which I think was not only a lot of fun for her, but also a lot of fun for me as an actor to watch her play because it’s so against who she’s as a person and other characters she has played. Ana is so accepting, loving and supportive of the LGBTQ community, so it was really cool to see all that she’s been up to this season.”
