We’re coming up for air from diving deep into Apple TV+ – because you know we’ve been anxiously awaiting all of these streaming services to come to life. But with one finally here, we’re already ready for the next streaming service.
And that would be Disney +. There is so much Disney greatness coming our way and one of those is Love, Simon.
The movie was one of our favorites and we got really excited when we found out that it would be followed up with a television show. We’re even more excited because one of our favorite actresses has joined the cast.
Sophia Bush is taking on a recurring role in Disney+ show.
In the show we will follow Victor, who is a new student at Creekwood High. New school, new city – those are enough to deal with, but add struggling with your sexual orientation makes it even harder. Victor is dealing with just that. When it all seems too much, he reaches out to Simon to help him navigate the ups and downs of high school. And we can’t wait to see how that unfolds.
Sophia will be playing, Veronica, the girlfriend of the father of Victor’s friend, Mia. Veronica runs a non-profit that is dedicated to helping women.

Veronica is described as, “Chic and sophisticated,” and is also, “Friendly and easy to like but can be strong-willed and tough when she needs to be.”

Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, will serve as showrunners and executive produce alongside Brian Tanen, Jason Ensler, Isaac Klausner, Marty Bowen, Adam Fishbach, Wyck Godfrey, and Pouya Shahbazian.
