‘Love, Victor’ Season 2 Trailer: Victor Faces New Challenges (VIDEO)
As you’ll recall, the first season ended with Victor coming out as gay to his parents, and now, in his junior year of high school, it’s time to see what’s next for his family, for his relationship with Benji (George Sear), and for everyone else in Creekwood.
When Benji asks what they’re going to tell everyone about their relationship, Victor decides he wants to tell people. “Everyone thinks coming out is easy these days, but it’s not,” Benji says. And it looks like Victor’s relationship with his mother (Ana Ortiz) may be one area in which it’s not.
“You should be around people who want you to be you,” Benji tells his boyfriend.
Watch the trailer below for a look at how Mia’s (Rachel Hilson) handling her life with her father engaged and his fiancée pregnant, what’s going on at home for Felix (Anthony Turpel), and more.
“Being out brings with it new challenges, as Victor faces a family struggling with his revelation, a heartbroken ex-girlfriend in Mia, and the difficulties of being an openly gay star athlete — all while navigating the excitement of his relationship with Benji,” the logline for Season 2 teases.
“I would like to see how [Victor and Benji’s] relationship flourishes [and] how his family copes with the relationship and how they feel about it” moving forward, Cimino told TV Insider after Season 1.
