Season 1 TV Review
Hulu, unlike other platforms, does not release traditional viewership data. The show grabbed a strong 93 percent and 95 percent Rotten Tomatoes rating among critics and viewers. This series also marked Hulu’s most-watched drama during its premiere week this past June.
Berger and Aptaker said in a THR podcast TV’s Top 5’s interview that they want to tell a larger story. This time they will include Victor’s actual self-discovery — in a slower and deeper fashion. They will take all mistakes into account while doing Love, Simon, and make it right this time. The duo also said that they want to make more “edgier” humorous jokes.
The duo also said that they will not include any coronavirus pandemic related event in the second season. They are opting instead to keep the show’s aspirational tone.
