“Love, Simon” Series Moving From Disney+ to Hulu

Michael Cimino in "Love, Victor"

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.
