Disney+ Is Developing an All-New ‘Love, Simon’ TV Series

One year after Love, Simon found its way into theaters, the beloved rom-com is receiving a brand-new makeover.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney+ (the company’s highly anticipated streaming platform) is teaming up with 20th Century Fox to develop a sequel to the popular movie, which is based on Becky Albertalli’s 2015 novel, Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda.

The new version will follow a series format, meaning it will be broken down into episodes. It will be based on the sequel to Albertalli’s first book, Leah on the Offbeat. So read up, people.

Unfortunately, there are a few catches. First of all, the movie will feature an all-new cast, so don’t get too attached to the faces in the film. And second, the original director, Greg Berlanti, won’t be involved due to his current deal with Warner Bros.

Nevertheless, Elizabeth Berger and Isaac Aptaker (aka the showrunners on This Is Us) will pen the script.

Love, Simon originally premiered in February 2018 at the Mardi Gras Film Festival before hitting theaters one month later. It tells the story of a closeted high school student, who begins an anonymous online relationship with another classmate.

The movie starred Nick Robinson (Simon), Katherine Langford (Leah), Josh Duhamel (Jack), Jennifer Garner (Emily), Keiynan Lonsdale (Bram), Jorge Lendeborg Jr. (Nick) and Alexandra Shipp (Abby).

The new Love, Simon TV show is joining a slew of Disney+ original series, including The Mandalorian, Timmy Failure, High School Musical and Hawkeye, which will star Jeremy Renner.

Disney+ will launch on November 12. (#Bless)
