Hit US teen drama coming to BBC in a matter of weeks | The Sun

A HIT US teen drama is going to be coming out for UK audiences in a matter of weeks after the BBC bought the show.

All three seasons of Hulu's Love, Victor will soon be available on the British streaming platform.

The series is set in the same world as hit film Love, Simon – but this time follows a different character along his journey to accepting his sexuality.

The titular character, who is played by Michael Cimino, is the new boy at school in Creekwood High.

During the drama he struggles to adjust to life in a new city, as well as grappling with how to tell his family and friends he is gay.

The half Puerto-Rican, half Columbian teen turns to Simon for help when he experiences an identity crisis.

Michael, 21, previously shared with Attitude that he got death threats over the role he played in the show – but is still proud of his decision.

He said: "I’ve had death threats, which is horrible. But the show is important to me.

"It’s an honor to play Victor, and a big responsibility. I went in with the pure intent to represent that correctly.

"I held myself to a really high standard to make sure everyone going through this story felt represented by the show."
