Ginny & Georgia (2021-Present)

One of the biggest and most interesting aspects of Love, Victor is that there are LGBTQ+ relationships at the forefront. Most shows that are in the same vein tend to include those kinds of romances, which is the case in Netflix’s Ginny & Georgia.

The story centers on a mother/daughter combo where the daughter is actually the more mature member of the family. They struggle to adjust to their new life after moving to a new city. Ginny’s new best friend Max is a lesbian and her budding romance with Sophie is a highlight of the show.

Euphoria (2019-Present)

Stream On HBO Max

Jules and Rue talk in bed in Euphoria

There aren’t many shows currently on TV that trend the way that Euphoria does. In a lot of ways, the series is like a much darker and more mature version of Degrassi: The Next Generation as the teens involved deal with serious topics like their sexuality, drugs, abuse, violence, and more.


Although the tone in Euphoria is certainly not in line with Love, Victor, the complex and likable teen characters are well-written in both. Again, LGTBQ+ characters play a big role including the relationship between Rue and Jules, Nate, Cal, and possibly even Lexi, among others.

Teenage Bounty Hunters (2020)

Stream On Netflix

Original cast from the Netflix series Teenage Bounty Hunters (Netflix)

Although it only lasted a single season on Netflix, those who watched Teenage Bounty Hunters understand how special the show was. Starring Maddie Phillips and Anjelica Bette Fellini as a pair of twins named Sterling and Blair, respectively, who fall into working as bounty hunters, the show was all about their bond.

When Sterling falls in love with another girl, Blair ultimately supports her as a great sister would, which is right in line with how Pilar has Victor’s back when he comes out to his family. Once again, it’s a case where the bonds forged by these young characters is what makes it tick.


Genera+ion (2021)

Stream On HBO Max

It’s fantastic to know that Love, Victor made it to three seasons because far too often are TV shows about LGBTQ+ characters canceled too soon. One series that falls into that category is HBO’s Genera+ion, which only lasted a single season.

The show is pretty similar to Euphoria in how it deals with teenagers exploring romance, sexuality, problems at home, and more, though it’s a bit more lighthearted than that. That kind of makes it ideal for fans of Love, Victor.

Heartstopper (2022-Present)

Stream On Netflix

Heartstopper Kit Connor and Joe Locke as Nick Nelson and Charlie Spring first meeting

The most recent LGBTQ+ show to get the world talking is Heartstopper. Based on a graphic novel of the same name, the romantic comedy series centers on a teen named Charlie who falls in love with his classmate Nick as their unlikely friendship becomes something more.

The show was met with widespread acclaim for the performances, writing, music, representation of the LGBTQ+ community, and basically every other aspect. Netflix quickly picked it up for another season and fans can’t wait to see more.

Never Have I Ever (2020-Present)

Stream On Netflix

Fabiloa and Eve against porta potties in Never Have I Ever

Netflix’s coming-of-age dramedy series Never Have I Ever follows Devi, a first-generation Indian-American high school student, who is still dealing with the unexpected and traumatic death of her father while trying to reinvent herself and make herself more popular in high school.

Never Have I Ever is a great show to watch after Love, Victor because it’s tonally the same. Both series take place in high school and follow teenagers who are dealing with major issues beyond the scope of adolescence. In addition, they both feature love triangles and deal with the complexities of teenage sexuality.


Schitt’s Creek (2015-2020)

Pop TV’s sitcom Schitt’s Creek follows the wealthy Rose family who finds themselves completely broke thanks to their business manager. The only asset the family is able to retain is a rundown town, Schitt’s Creek, the father bought as a joke. With nowhere else to go, the family moves into the motel and must adjust to their new lives.

While Schitt’s Creek doesn’t focus on the lives of teenagers like Love, Victor does it does share similar themes. The sitcom deals with complicated family relationships and also consciously tells authentic stories that the LGBTQ+ community can relate to.

Party Of Five (2020)

Stream On Hulu

The popular Party of Five drama series was rebooted and modernized in order to premiere on Freeform. The series follows the Acosta children who must figure out how to raise themselves after their parents get deported to Mexico.

While the original Party of Five might not have had a lot in common with Love, Victor, the reboot certainly does. Both series focus on Latinx families and they both also feature LGBTQ+ characters who are struggling to accept themselves because of the conservative way they have been brought up.

One Day At A Time (2017-2020)

Stream On Netflix

Another show to be rebooted for new generations is the Sony Television Pictures family sitcom One Day at a Time. This multi-cam comedy centers around the Cuban-American Alvarez family as they navigate everyday life.

Much like Love, Victor, One Day at a Time focuses on the Latinx experience in the United States. It also features a coming-out storyline but unlike Victor’s story, Elena is met with acceptance from her family despite their traditional upbringing.

Everything Sucks! (2018)

Stream On Netflix

Elijah Stevenson, Sydney Sweeney Everything Sucks

While Netflix’s Everything Sucks! has joined the ranks of phenomenal television shows to only get one season, it’s still worth a watch. The dramedy series is set in the 1990s and tells the story of a group of outcast high schoolers who belong to their school’s AV and drama clubs.

Everything Sucks! is definitely similar to Love, Victor because of the show’s ability to center the narrative through the teenager’s point-of-view. In addition, the series focuses on teenagers coming to terms with their sexualities while trying to survive high school in the ’90s.

On My Block (2018-2021)

Another Netflix coming-of-age dramedy that can be a great comp to Love, Victor is On My Block. This series centers on a group of friends who live in South Central Los Angeles. Their everyday adolescent lives are complicated by their neighborhood’s dangerous past and present.

While dramatic, On My Block also carve a special place for its comedy which makes this series stand out amongst the rest. The series is similar to Love, Victor in that it centers its narrative around teenagers of color.

High School Musical: The Musical: The Series (2019-Present)

Stream On Disney+

One of Disney+’s earliest original projects was the coming-of-age dramedy High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. Set in the “real” East High, the series centers on the East High drama department as they put on their own production of High School Musical.

Not only does High School Musical: The Musical: The Series cater to the same young adult audience, but it also involves singing which is always a good thing. The series also explores similar themes like the LGBTQ experience and trying to fit in.


Sex Education (2019-Present)

Netflix’s Sex Education is a British drama series that definitely pushes the envelope on what is considered acceptable for young adult shows. The series centers on two high school students who start their own sex therapy clinics to help their fellow classmates.

While Sex Education is definitely more explicit in its content the series does still center around the everyday lives of teenagers. It also includes a diverse cast who all bond over the trials and tribulations that arise from being sexually active in high school. The show has characters who are gay, bisexual, pansexual, asexual, and more, and it always comes across as sex positive.

Jane The Virgin (2014-2019)

Stream On Netflix

Gina Rodriguez as Jane in Jane the Virgin

The CW’s drama series Jane the Virgin can best be described as an Americanized telenovela. When 23-year-old virgin Jane ends up becoming pregnant while going in for a routine exam her world is flipped upside down. Not only does she have to grapple with the fact that she is going to be a mother, but she also finds herself in the middle of a love triangle.

One of the biggest things this show has in common with Love, Victor is that it centers around a Latinx family that believes in traditional values.

The Fosters (2013-2018)

Stream On Hulu & Amazon Prime

Freeform’s popular family drama series The Fosters has a lot going on. The series centered on Callie, a teenage girl who has spent most of her life in and out of foster homes. At the start of the series, Callie is taken in by Stef and Lena who have experience with fostering children.

While The Fosters is definitely more dramatic than Love, Victor, and tends to deal with darker topics, it also pays close attention to give a voice to people of color and the LGBTQ+ community.
