'Love, Victor' Stars Talk the Show's Legacy, Victor & Benji's Future

·1 min read

After two years and three whirlwind seasons, Hulu's beloved Love, Simon TV series spinoff — Love, Victor — has now come to an end.

Out got the chance to speak with Love, Victor's two lead stars — Michael Cimino and George Sear — about the bittersweet feelings involved when it comes to ending such a beloved, groundbreaking, and inclusive show after three seasons, what they think Victor and Benji will be doing in the future, the show's legacy, and so much more.

"I think that there's so much more queer media that needs to be made, and I think that it shows big corporations that there is a market for this," Cimino told Out. "It also shows more representation and will change peoples' minds because there is a market for it. I think it's cool to just have queer characters in regular media, as well, that just isn't necessarily a queer story, but it's just, that the character is queer. That's so important. I think that's the way that you start opening peoples' minds up to the possibility of, 'Oh, well, what's wrong with being queer?' It challenges peoples' narrative that they have about being queer in their head."

"I think that's an amazing thing about the Love, Simon/Love, Victor universe, that there is so many different LGBTQ+ stories that can still be told," Sear added. "I think they should keep pushing that, going in different directions. I'm just really proud to be a part of that and especially knowing the impact it's having."

The third and final season of Love, Victor is now streaming on Hulu and Disney+.
