Renewed Or Cancelled?
The third season of Love, Victor ended on a happy note for Victor Salazar as he finally ended up with the man of his dreams. Felix and Mia also received their happily ever after, and Isobel was finally able to reconnect with her son.
The ending was everything you probably hoped it would be but if you want to see more of Victor and his family and friends, you might be interested in a fourth season.
But is this likely to happen? Well, we have some good and bad news if you’re a fan of the show.
Will there be a fourth season of Love, Victor?
Victor went on a journey of self-discovery in season 3 but sadly for viewers, Victor’s journey is seemingly now over as the show has been cancelled. This might be unsurprising as the final episode of the third season wrapped everything up nicely so there wasn’t much of a need for a fourth season anyway.
Still, if you’re a fan of the show, its cancellation might still come as a blow to you.
Why won’t there be a Season 4 of Love, Victor?
In a recent interview, series showrunner Isaac Aptaker told Radio Times why there won’t be a fourth season of the show. He said:
“I think the feeling for everyone was that we had really told the story we set out to tell. Victor has had this journey, and really in three distinct chapters.
And with all of our cast… they were sort of fresh-faced 20/21-year-olds who were playing high school. And as the years have gone on, they’re now mid-20s playing high school [so] it feels like the show has grown up and gone on this journey.
It felt like a really natural, full circle ending point.”
Co-showrunner Elizabeth Berger also had this to say in her interview with Radio Times.
“We love this show deeply. Our cast loves this show. We love our viewers. But we do feel so grateful going into this season that we knew that it was our final season and we all got to really write towards the ending for everybody that felt right to us.
So often on TV, you don’t get to write to that, you don’t get to know what your plan is. Knowing that we get to give an ending here is hugely exciting, and just so satisfying for us and we think we have something… that will leave everyone feeling really good and really satisfied.”
It is rare that shows get wrapped up neatly as they are often cancelled before they get the chance to bring their stories and character arcs to a close. As such, it’s good to know that the series showrunners had the opportunity to give Victor and the other characters of the show the ending they deserve.
Will there be another show like Love, Victor?
If you’re a fan of Love, Victor, you will be glad to know that there are lots of great shows featuring queer representation on our streaming services. These include Heartstopper, Where Your Eyes Linger, Young Royals, and Sex Education. Admittedly, Love, Victor stands out because of its Latinx representation but if you’re looking for other LTBTQ characters, you shouldn’t struggle to find your next binge-watch.
But if you’re looking for another chapter in the ‘Love’ franchise after Simon and Victor, there is a chance that this could happen. In his interview with Radio Times, Isaac Aptaker had this to say:
“It’s always on the table…We love high school stories. We always say ‘that’s our last high school thing’, and now we’re about to actually do another. But it’s such a rich time.
“There’s so much discovery and the stakes are so high. It’s such a juicy time of life to write about. So yeah, it’s been a true pleasure getting to tell these stories for three seasons and a movie, and I would never say no more.”
Personally, we think Rahim deserves his own spin-off show as he became a bit of a background character in Season 3. Liam is another character who could get his own series as his coming-out story only just started in the last season. We could even see the return of Victor as he could mentor Liam in the same way that Simon mentored him.
This is just speculation, however, as, despite Aptaker’s encouraging words about another high school ‘Love’ show, there is no definite word on a new series just yet.
