However, there is still plenty to watch before the big night!

We’ve pulled out three of the best things dropping on streaming services this weekend to keep you entertained.

Love, Victor (Season 3)

What: Love, Simon was a 2018 film that was celebrated as one of the first mainstream LGBTQI+ films to be produced and distributed by a massive production company. The film followed Simon Spier (Nick Robinson), a closeted gay high school student navigating the process of coming out and falling in love. The film emphasized that everyone deserves a great love story. Last year, as a gift for the difficult times of COVID, we received a television version of the film, Love, Victor.

The television series follows Victor (Michael Cimino), a closeted gay high school student whose life is turned upside down when his family moves to a new town. The time of change also forces Victor to come to terms with his sexuality and identity. Nick Robinson, reprising his role as Simon from the film, appears via voice-over, narrating Simon’s messages to Victor.

Victor’s support extends to his family and friends and that’s really what makes this series as special as the original film. Her mother Isabell, played by Ugly Betty‘s Ana Ortiz, is also hiding a secret that could tear their family apart. Victor’s father, played by James Martinez, is a white-collar worker under a lot of pressure. Felix (Anthony Turpel) plays Victor’s best friend with great empathy and charm.

Now, the series returns for a highly anticipated final season. Season 2 of Love, Victor ended on a tense cliffhanger, with Victor getting some clarity on his love life. Who will Victor end up with? You will need to watch and find out.
