Love, Victor Season 2 | Engaging, Entertaining And Emotional

Published

on

After the 2018 film Love, Simon was a hit, it received its own spin-off TV show Love, Victor which premiered on Hulu last year and on Star on Disney+ in other territories earlier this year and now the second season is here. Fans have been waiting eagerly to see what happens next after the end of season 1 left us on a big cliffhanger.

At the end of the first season we saw Victor (Michael Cimino) come out as gay to his parents, but the show ended right there leaving us waiting to see how they react. Season 1 saw Victor coming to terms with his sexuality and it was about Victor’s own self-discovery and the new season is about what follows from that discovery as Victor now has to deal with the difficulties that follow including how his parents react. How does he deal with his ex-girlfriend Mia (Rachel Hilson)? What about the difficulties of being an openly gay star-athlete? And on top of all this Victor has the excitement from his newfound relationship with Benjy (George Sear).

Season 2 of Love, Victor definitely ups the levels of drama and emotion in the show, which results in it being excellent. But most importantly it also broadens the scope of it. Whilst it is still mainly told from Victor’s perspective and he’s still the main character, we learn much more about the lives of all the supporting characters from the first season including Mia, Benjy, Lake (Bebe Wood) and Felix (Anthony Turpel).  By enriching the backstories and complex emotions of all of this other characters it makes everything feel that bit more real.

There’s definitely a lot more going on in the second season but that just means it’s much more fast-paced and it results in season two being just as good, if not better than the first. At 10 episodes long, season 2 moves along quickly but it still spends just the right amount of time with each character, subplot and story, making sure to develop everything fully.

At lot happens over the course of the new season and I won’t divulge into any specific plot points or spoilers, but it picks up immediately from where the first ended with Victor coming out to his parents and it keeps going from there. It engages with lots of important issues like divorce, homophobia, sexuality, mental health, and religion, showing all of the ups and downs that come with teen relationships and it does so in a mature and sophisticated manner going into real depth with many of these important issues.

As well as this, the connection to the rest of the Love, Simon universe is expanded upon but crucially, Love, Victor isn’t dependent on these connections. It builds upon the characters that have already been set up in the film Love, Simon, but the show is constantly proving that it is its own thing and isn’t just a spin-off for spin-off’s sake. It’s developing and it’s moving beyond what’s already been established in this shared universe and allowing the show’s characters to develop, rather than relying on the characters from the film.

Season 2 of Love, Victor is engaging, entertaining, emotional and somehow even better than season 1. The new season adds a wealth of depth, not only to Victor but to all his friends and to his parents so that by the time season 2 ends you feel so connected to all of the characters in the show. And much like with the first season, it leaves you desperate to know what happens next and you just can’t wait for season 3.

Season 2 of Love, Victor starts streaming on June 11th on Hulu in the US and on June 18th on Disney+ in the UK.

Meryl Streep Joins the Cast for Season 3 of Hulu’s ‘Only Murders in the Building

Published

on

Many were surprised when the Season 2 finale of Hulu comedy, Only Murders in the Building revealed that Paul Rudd would be joining the series for its upcoming season, however, it seems his casting may have just been topped. According to a tweet from the show’s Twitter account, it appears that Oscar-winning actress Meryl Streep (Out of Africa, August: Osage County) will join the cast led by Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez for Season 3 of Only Murders in the Building.

One can believe that Streep stumbled into the series similar to how she did for Season 2 of HBO’s Big Little Lies. With the latter show, Streep was a fan of the mysterious female-led drama and was written into the sophomore season. You wouldn’t be hard pressed to believe that Streep was probably a fan of the beloved comedy series and might want to join in the hijinks along with friends, Steve Martin and Martin Short. Streep will also appear in the upcoming AppleTV+ anthology series, Extrapolations in March.

The original tweet revealed that the third season of Only Murders in the Building has just begun filming. The show has been nominated for tons of awards thus far and with growing popularity as well as the additions of Streep and Rudd to the cast, anything can happen in the murder mystery program. Season 2 released back in June so we can probably expect Season 3 to begin streaming in Summer 2023.
