Love, Victor is set in the same world as its cinematic predecessor - the Atlanta, Georgia suburb of Creekwood. More specifically, the show returns to Creekwood High School as 16-year-old Victor (Michael Cimino), recently arrived from Texas, struggles to come to terms with his sexuality just as Simon - now a school legend - did before him.
In attempting to maintain a straight facade, Victor immediately pursues a girlfriend in Mia (Rachel Naomi Hilson), but is secretly crushing on the already out Benji (George Sear). Fans of the movie will be pleased to know that the film's lead actor, Nick Robinson - the titular Simon - narrates the new Hulu series and even makes an appearance later in the show.
With Love, Simon author Becky Albertalli also set to release a new novella that expands Simon's story to his college years, it seems like we've got the beginnings of a Simonverse on our hands this summer!

Is Love, Victor coming to Netflix - and can I watch it anywhere else?
In short, no - or at least, not yet.
It would be a surprise to see the show go to Netflix any time soon, given the two streaming platforms are competitors, while release plans for other countries are very much up in the air.
There's reason for cautious optimism, though, as Hulu has worked successfully partnered with international outfits in the past to see its content made available to a wider audience.
In Australia, Stan has a strong track-record of bringing Hulu content to the country and was the place to watch The Great online, while Hulu Originals also often come to the UK - Normal People and Little Fires Everywhere being two recent examples.
