Hulu is bumping up the premiere date of the highly-anticipated Love, Simon spinoff TV series, Love, Victor, in observance of Juneteenth. 

Originally slated to drop on the popular streaming service on Friday, June 19, Love, Victor will now be gracing everyone's small screens on Wednesday, June 17, two days ahead of schedule. The reason for shifting the Love, Victor release was a decision by Hulu to let Juneteenth, an American holiday that celebrates and commemorates the end of slavery at the end of the Civil War, have its own, uninterrupted spotlight.

"This coming June 19—Juneteenth—will mark 155 years since slavery was abolished in America," an official statement from the show's Instagram account read. "This date represents an important turning point for our nation and for human rights, and we believe that now, more than ever, it deserves to have its own day in the spotlight. For this reason, we are shifting the premiere date for Love, Victor to June 17."

Considering the current state of the world and the momentum of the ongoing Black Lives Matter movement, Hulu's decision to let an important day in history have all the spotlight is a very good one! 

Catch Love, Victor when it hits Hulu on its new premiere date, June 17!
