There's going to be a sequel to last year's big screen hit Love, Simon in the shape of a TV series with original star Nick Robinson as the series narrator
Love, Simon, about a high school student Simon Spier (played by Nick Robinson) dealing with the happiness and heartbreak surrounding his sexuality, is being turned into a TV series.
As reported by TVLine, The TV version, due to air next year, will also be set at Creekwood High School and follow a new character Victor (played by Michael Cimino from recent horror movie Annabelle Comes Home), as he struggles to adjust to the ups and downs of life at high school.
When things get too heavy, Victor starts writing to Simon Spier for advice and guidance – with actor Nick Robinson returning as the series narrator.
The cast of TV’s Love, Simon also includes former Ugly Betty star Ana Ortiz as Victor’s mum, who has her own challenges as her family relocate to a new city to start over.
“I have been waiting to announce this for the longest time I could not express more gratitude to be a part of this project,” Michael Cimino wrote on Instagram “And I couldn’t express more love for the cast. I CANT WAIT FOR YOU GUYS TO SEE THIS!”
Love, Simon is currently due to premiere in 2020 on new streaming service Disney+, which will feature original films and TV series including new Star Wars projects and a TV series based on High School Musical.
