Inspired by Becky Albertalli’s young adult novel ‘Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda’ and its film adaptation ‘Love, Simon,’ Hulu’s teen show ‘Love, Victor’ revolves around the life of Victor Salazar, a sophomore student who questions and figures out his sexuality while studying at Creekwood High School. The series progresses through Victor’s coming out as gay, the challenges he faces afterward, and his intricate relationships with his boyfriends and friends.
Created by Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, the romantic series originally debuted on June 17, 2020. The show received immense acclaim from critics and viewers alike, especially for its enchanting narrative, representation of LGBTQ+ characters, and Michael Cimino’s performance as protagonist Victor Salazar. Since the third season ends with Victor and Benji Campbell’s relationship reaching a crucial point in their lives, the viewers must be eager to know about the prospects of a fourth installment. Well, let us share what we know!
Love, Victor Season 4 Release Date
As far as the fourth season is concerned, we may not have good news to share. On February 8, 2022, Hulu announced the conclusion of ‘Love, Victor’ with its third season, revealing that a fourth outing of the show is not on the cards. The streaming platform and creators Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger discussed the show’s conclusion before conceiving the third season. “It [the conclusion] wasn’t always the plan, but it was something that we talked with Hulu and decided well in advance of the third season, which was really amazing,” Aptaker told Metro.
The co-creator added, “It allowed us to plan ahead and craft the ending of this story exactly as we wanted to.” He believes that the third season completes the story arcs of Victor and his friends. “I hope people feel when they see it that it was a real full circle and there’s a real sense of completion for Victor and all his friends on their coming-of-age journeys. So it was really nice to be able to map that out well in advance and get to this full circle ending,” he told Metro.
Furthermore, co-creator Elizabeth Berger joined Aptaker to stress that the conclusion was essential. “It’s obviously bittersweet for us because we love this world and this show, but it also did feel very baked into the DNA of the show that everybody goes on these journeys, and then it wraps up at this point. So we’re just thrilled we got to do it exactly how we wanted to do it,” she told Metro in the same interview.
The third season ends with Victor and Benji reuniting after breaking up due to the several tensions that arise between them. Mia Brooks decides to move to Palo Alto to be with her father, Harold Brooks, and his wife, Veronica. Lucy decides against moving to Portland as her girlfriend Lake Meriwether asks her to stay in the latter’s mother, Georgina Meriwether’s apartment. Felix Weston and Pilar Salazar reunite as well, concluding their story. Since the principal characters’ narratives meet satisfying ends, it is understandable that Hulu and the creators had decided to finish the show with season 3.
Taking the aforementioned factors into account, it is unlikely that ‘Love, Victor’ season 4 will ever get made. However, Aptaker had indicated that we may see new projects set in the universe of ‘Love, Victor’ and ‘Love, Simon.’ “I think anything’s a possibility. It’s such a great group, we love this world,” Aptaker revealed to Metro. “It definitely feels like this chapter [‘Love, Victor’] is over, but we’re so lucky to have such a passionate fanbase that were the opportunity to arise for something else, it’s hard to say no,” Berger added, concerning the possibility of a potential project set in the universe.
All things considered, even though we will not get a fourth season of ‘Love, Victor,’ we can be hopeful that a new project set in the world of Victor Salazar and Simon Spier will materialize in the future. Until then, we can always return to the three seasons chronicling Victor and his adorable friends’ tales.
