A trailer for Love, Victor, the TV sequel to Love, Simon, dropped Sunday (April 26), showing that things are about to get a little heated.

Hulu released a first-look clip for the new series, a continuation of the beloved 2018 rom-com, which follows a new student at Creekwood High School go on a journey of self-discovery.

Narrated by Love, Simon star Nick Robinson, the half-hour series will star Michael Cimino alongside Ana Ortiz and James Martinez and will premier June 19.

In the adorable trailer Cimino’s character, the titular Victor, applies for a barista job at his local café and things get steamy.

No, literally steamy, there’s a milk steamer involved.

The assistant manager of said café happens to be an aggressively twinky, lofty-haired guy who constantly says the word “tight” before milk spurts all over them.

Victor appropriately shoots out of the coffee shop and withdraws his application.

Love, Victor was originally going to stream on Disney+. 

Love, Victor‘s slated debut comes after Disney+ quietly shifted the show to its sister network Hulu. Sources alleged that Disney executives felt show’s exploration of sexuality would not resonate with family audiences.

Adjusting to city living, making news pals and struggling with his sexual orientation – these are some of the themes Love, Victor will platform across its 10-episode season.

But it was the latter that allegedly chaffed with executives, leading to it being moved to Hulu, which the company also owns.

Nevertheless, a writer’s room has already been drafted for a second season.

But that’s not the only addition to the Love, Simon series fans are being gifted with. Love, Creekwood will be the follow-up novella to the original book the movie was based on.

Becky Albertalli, whose original novel Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda sparked the film, announced she is penning a new follow-up in late April.
