He is my son, and that’s who he is.
Love, Victor is back for a second season, guys! Hulu dropped its trailer and it’s giving viewers all the feels. During the beginning of the brief preview, Victor Salazar (played by Michael Cimino), the main character of the series, is shown coming out to his family.
This scene was the season 1 finale cliffhanger which brings about the big question, after coming out to his family: what comes next for Victor?
At some point in the preview, Victor’s father—Armando Salazar—played by actor James Martinez, could be seen talking to his wife (and of course, Victor’s mother) Isabel, played by former Ugly Betty star Ana Ortiz. They were discussing about how Victor’s sexuality was a lot for the dad to wrap his head around. When asked by Isabel if Armando ever will understand Victor’s sexuality, Armando replied: “He is my son, and that’s who he is.”
Viewers couldn’t help but react on this particular scene. One YouTube user named : 18, said, “God, I wish my dad had this reaction, I wish everything could just be that easy.” User I_Will_Rise on the other hand, said, “This trailer makes me feel like I’m ready to come out to everyone.”
The first season of the show was shown last year. It introduced Victor, the new kid in town, who was experiencing his first crush with a boy. The second season is set to premiere on Hulu this coming June 11, 2021.
Love, Victor also stars Nick Robinson who is back as Simon Spier; Mason Gooding as Andrew, Creekwood High School’s cocky and popular basketball-loving jock; Rachel Naomi Hilson as Mia, Victor’s smart friend; Bebe Wood as Lake, Victor’s best friend; and Anthony Turpel as Felix, Victor’s neighbor.
Love, Victor is a spin-off of Love, Simon, Greg Berlanti’s popular 2018 film. Love, Simon is about a 17-year-old closeted gay high school student named Simon Spier whose life was turned upside down when a blackmailer threatened to out him to the entire school.
