Michael Cimino (Annabelle Comes Home) will play Victor in the series, a new student at Creekwood High School who is on his own journey of self-discovery, facing challenges at home, adjusting to a new city, and struggling with his sexual orientation. When it all seems too much, he reaches out to Simon to help him navigate the ups and downs of high school.

Nick Robinson, who starred in the gay coming-of-age movie, will produce and narrate the series. It has not yet been confirmed whether Robinson will appear onscreen.

Cimino joins the previously announced Ana Ortiz (Whiskey Cavalier) who will play Isabel, Victor’s smart and warm mother who loves her husband and her family, but is under a lot of pressure as they move their family across the country.

The cast also includes James Martinez (One Day at a Time) as Victor’s “guy’s guy” father Armando, Isabella Ferreira (Orange Is the New Black) as Victor’s younger sister Pilar, newcomer Mateo Fernandez as Victor’s brother Adrian, Johnny Sequoyah (Believe) as Victor’s whip-smart friend Mia, Bebe Wood (The Real O’Neals) as Mia’s social media-obsessed bestie Lake, George Sear (Into the Badlands) as Victor’s confident and charming classmate Benji, Anthony Turpel (The Bold and the Beautiful) as Victor’s awkward new neighbor Felix, and Mason Gooding (Booksmart) as Creekwood’s cocky jock Andrew.
