If you were looking forward to watching the Love, Simon series on Disney’s recently launched streaming service, it seems like you’ll have to sign up for Hulu instead as the spin-off found a new home there.
According to Variety, sources close to the studio, this show was moved to a new platform after the masterminds behind Disney+ came to a conclusion it won’t fit with the family-friendly content they’re trying to curate on this streaming platform.
Love, Simon isn’t even the first show to experience a Disney+ to Hulu relocation. The same thing also happened to High Fidelity starring Zoë Kravitz, another show based on a movie. As Hulu already aired several shows with young adult protagonists, it seemed like an appropriate home for this one.
The half-hour comedy also got a new name – Love, Victor – after the titular character played by Michael Cimino, a new student at Creekwood High School, who’s on his own journey of self-discovery. The series will premiere in June, as a way of celebrating Pride Month.
