Hulu is debuting “Love, Victor” sooner than planned — and for the best reason!

Earlier today, the streaming service shared that their highly-anticipated “Love, Simon” spinoff series (starring Michael Cimino) will premiere on June 17th, instead of June 19th as originally planned, in an effort to recognize the historical importance of Juneteenth.

For those who don’t know, Juneteenth (also known as Freedom Day, Jubilee Day, and Cel-Liberation Day) commemorates the emancipation of the last remaining enslaved African-Americans in the Confederacy. This year marks 155 years since slavery was abolished in America.

“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,” Hulu wrote on Instagram.
