“Love, Victor” is back for season two just in time for Pride Month.
This season of the popular Hulu drama picks up right after Victor (Michael Cimino) comes out to his parents and follows him as he learns to embrace his sexuality.
“I think that Victor’s journey this season is more about discovering what it means to be a gay man in the modern world and navigating what it means to be a gay man in a relationship and also what it means to be gay to him,” star Michael Cimino recently shared in an interview with ABC Audio.
Cimino says it’s a story he’s proud to tell, and he hopes the positive fan reception will show others in Hollywood that there’s a market for more LGBTQ storytelling.
“It’s such an honor to know that I’m representing a community that is so underrepresented in so many different ways, and it’s like, you know, I don’t take this role lightly,” he said.

“I know that this is so important to so many people, and I just want to represent the community as accurately as I possibly can,” he added.
And that means not shying away from some more mature themes this season.
“[We] get to be a bit more sort of realistic with storytelling and tell a bit more sort of adult stories,” said George Sear, who plays Victor’s love interest Benji. “And so it’s great that the series is having that evolution.”
Season two of “Love, Victor” debuts today on Hulu.
Hulu subscription plans start at $5.99 per month, and there is a bundle offer featuring Hulu, Disney+ and ESPN+ for $13.99 per month.
Disney is the parent company of ABC News and “Good Morning America.”
