Love, Victor recently aired its series finale on Hulu, and the entire series was also released on Disney+. Since this series was originally a spinoff of the movie, Love, Simon, there is always the potential for the franchise to carry on in a different way. That’s even truer since one of the creators, Issac Aptaker recently told RadioTimes.com, “It’s been a true pleasure getting to tell these stories for three seasons and a movie, and I would never say no (to) more.”

XOXO, Creek Secrets
The omnipotent presence that ties the whole franchise together, Creek Secrets would carry its very own spinoff, with a mystery tied around who runs the site, in a similar fashion to Gossip Girl, or Lady Whistledown on Bridgerton.
