Disney has pulled a planned Love, Simon television series from its Disney+ streaming service after deciding the show wasn’t “family friendly,” Variety today reports.
Variety cites sources who allege that Disney decided “issues explored on the show, including alcohol use and sexual exploration, would not fit in with the family-friendly content on Disney Plus”.
The 10-episode series, following on from the popular flim starring Nick Robinson as the titular Simon (shown above), will instead debut on Hulu in June and be retitled Love, Victor.
The Love, Simon follow-up television series will star Michael Cimino as new lead character, Victor, a Creekwood High School student “struggling with his sexual orientation.” It also stars Ana Ortiz and James Martinez and Victor’s parents. Nick Robinson will produce and narrate the series.
