Hulu Renew/Cancel: Love, Victor Renewed For Season Three After A Much Needed Surge (UPDATED)

UPDATE: Love, Victor was renewed for a third season on Friday, July 30. 

Below is a table of audience demand multipliers as reported by Parrot Analytics for Hulu’s original series, Disney’s mostly adult-oriented TV streaming service. A 1.0 multiplier is the average for all shows past and present, and is updated on a rolling 30-day basis. The numbers seen in this table are as reported on July 4, 2021. Let me know what you think by leaving a reaction and comment! 

Love, Victor
Love Victor took off nearly a full year in between seasons; it most recently was released on June 17, 2020 before the June 11, 2021 second season. As such, it was at the lower end of the Hulu table all year, even once in the second-lowest spot. It has gotten a huge boost throughout the first few weeks of the second season being released, and now has more audience demand in the United States than all but two other Hulu original series. It also has the most demand of all shows fully distributed by Disney, and plenty of international appeal. This type of surge arguably proves Love, Victor worthy of a third season. 

Into the Dark
As time goes on, outlook only gets worse for Into the Dark. The most recent season of the episode-by-episode anthology series premiered all the way back in October 2019, and no word about a third season has come more than three months after Season 2 finally concluded. What’s more, Hulu does not have international distribution rights, and it is produced by a company owned by Universal. With all this in mind, Hulu may see it to be more trouble than it’s worth to commence a third season. 

Marvel’s MODOK
Marvel’s MODOK declined rather quickly with U.S. audience demand, having a 4.6 multiplier the week after it premiered. It also has virtually no audience demand outside of the United States. The main reason I am still predicting renewal is because it’s Hulu’s only original Marvel series. Marvel’s main home is Disney+, but putting a new Marvel show on Hulu allows Disney to both get new subscribers and attract ones who may have bought the Disney+/Hulu/ESPN+ bundle but don’t use Hulu all that often.
