Critic Reviews for Love, Victor Season 2

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (3)

If the growth in the show (and Victor) continues on the positive trajectory mapped out by Season 2, hopefully Victor makes the right choice. Like its charming protagonist, "Love, Victor" is all grown up.

Jun 14, 2021 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

It's a smart, believable paradox of parental acceptance.

Jun 14, 2021 | Full Review…

Martinez has already played a traditional father struggling with his daughter's sexuality in the modern-day reboot of One Day at a Time, so it's refreshing to see him take on a slightly different role this time around.

Jun 11, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

In between seasons the show has really figured itself out because Love, Victor S2 is a marked improvement over S1 (which was already great) in both complexity and maturity.

Jun 22, 2021 | Full Review…

It ultimately succeeds because it maintains that one thing that made its first season such a joy: Heart.

Jun 16, 2021 | Full Review…

It feels a bit like watching a bulldozer head for a litter of puppies. But with punchy writing and a charismatic cast, "Love, Victor" makes the agony feel worthwhile - and insanely bingeable.

Jun 16, 2021 | Rating: A | Full Review…

Season 2 is not only a worthy follow-up but a better one. It resonates because growing up and finding acceptance is a process that doesn't stop with graduation.

Jun 14, 2021 | Full Review…

While showrunners Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Bergers have written in some steamy scenes between Benji and Victor, who still share incredible chemistry, sex very much happens off-screen in Love, Victor. This is not Normal People, after all.

Jun 11, 2021 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Love, Victor season two sometimes has weird priorities, but its willingness to have frank conversations with characters who are clearly in the wrong, as well as expanding its LGBTQ characters, makes for a deeper, more meaningful season.

Jun 11, 2021 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

The show succeeds in showing the nuance in Victor's parents' reactions - both of his parents are confused and deal with it in vastly different ways.

Jun 11, 2021 | Full Review…

"Love, Victor" raises several issues of importance to queer teens (and adults), and while they may only be touched on in each half-hour episode, they go down smoothly

Jun 11, 2021 | Full Review…

Love, Victor leans into its teen soap tendencies, while still diving deeper into a nuanced tale of queer acceptance.

Audience Reviews for Love, Victor: Season 2

    Although at times it falls prey to some cliché teen drama tropes, good writing and strong characters make up for the few things that are to be criticized.

    Absolutely love it !! My BF and I watch an episode together every night. Very funny and just an amazing feel good story

    The writing is amazing! This season is way more emotional than the first season. I love how it digs deep into how Victor coming out affects the people in Victor's life too. The perspectives of Victor's family members and friends are interesting and important in the overall story.

    Amazing season. Great storytelling and thought-provoking ending. My only annoyance are: the add of pop culture references all the damn time and Victor's new love interest being too rushed.

    I don't think Love, Victor creators realise what an outstanding job they are doing with this series. Victor is every teen coming out. Scared to say it out loud, nervous about his first time - the look at that bottle of lube gave me all sorts of flashbacks, realising his first love might not be the only guy! We have all been there. It speaks so well to those watching as an education tool for so many! The job that the actors have done, particularly Ana Ortiz and Michael Cimimo, is outstanding to show not every coming out story is easy but being yourself is so important no matter what the long run is. On top of being so incredible for our LGBT+ community this series also shines a light on other tough topics such as racism, eating disorders and mental health which is not an easy thing to get right - yet the team seem to approach them so delicately and successfully every time. I am rooting for a renewal of the series for Season 3 because let's face it we all want to know who Victor said Hi to! I'm all for it being Benji because they are the show stan couple but who knows! Well done guys, this is just outstanding work! Coming from a really appreciated gay guy who feels seen by this series and Love, Simon!

    The emotional roller coaster is Phenomenal!🥰 I cried, I felt the love, the connection to the characters I developed where so strong. It's hard not know what happens next after such a spectacular ending this season. I was literally crying tears of joy 🥲 Don't skip this show or this season especially, Good luck with the tears!

    So amazing season. The love of living, regardless of people. Your mother in a great inner battle, choosing her child or her past life.

    Absolutely wonderful writing and phenomenal cast. This show one-upped itself by gigantic leaps and bounds this season. Seeing Victor really grow into himself and start to find his place in the world has been incredible. The diversity on this show is amazing as is the way they confront so many issues surrounding said diversity. This show has had me laughing, screaming, and crying at so many different points throughout the season. I particularly love the attention to detail put into the filming. The things you catch on a second or third pass are so interesting to see. Season 2 has truly been a Rollercoaster ride and I absolutely cannot wait to see what season 3 has in store for everyone.

    Giving this 5 stars despite its flaws, because I loved the first season, the acting is great, and we need more LGBTQ programming of this caliber. But the storytelling needs work. Far more interesting than a rushed love triangle trope: Victor becoming Rahim's Simon, as Venji heals & finds family acceptance together. Normalize gay tv couples navigating love with healthier communication amid life's messes, greater resiliency, and more happy days than sad ones…because having narratives like that will help make them more common in real life. Leaning into tragedy too much in a gay story, and it runs the risk of tittering into the old homophobic trope in media that being gay means a tragic life, which it doesn't.

    Absolutely loved season 2. The show as a whole is very emotional in the best way and sends a powerful message of acceptance and endurance. Benji is the only right choice for Victor for all the obvious reasons but he was his first and I know they can make it through!
