Season two of Love, Victor takes everything that made the show good, and unshackles it from the restrictions of Disney Plus.
As a result, what we get is a more honest coming of age show about a latino teenager discovering himself. From the first time having gay sex, to his first kiss, and coming out to his family.
That last one was extra special. For once, Hollywood didn’t go with the “mom loved him, dad had difficulties accepting”. Instead, it’s the opposite. This time, it’s the mom that’s finding it hard to accept and causing problems big enough to threaten Victor and Benji’s relationship. But enough spoilers.
Now let’s talk about that ending! Thanks to officially being a Hulu series now, the producers are able to get more into the drama of being a teenager (Felix and Lake, Mia and Andrew): between getting over relationship problems to the difficult parent/teenager dynamics, season 2 of Love, Victor successfully managed a delicate balance without looking cheesy or trying too hard.
Finally, similar to the first season, we’re left with another major cliffhanger. Can’t wait for the third season! Make it happen Hulu.
Should you watch it?
If you’re like me and thought that Season 1 was a bit too shallow, this season takes it up to the roof. From steamy scenes to heart to heart, Season 2 of Love, Victor is the best LGBTQ coming of age television currently streaming.
