Love, Victor spoilers follow.

Love, Victor's first season ended on a tense but hopeful cliffhanger, with Michael Cimino's Victor Salaza coming out to his parents. Fans are yet to learn their reaction, and now the series' bosses have explained why that was so important.

Speaking exclusively to Digital Spy, Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger opened up about their decision to end season one in that way, with Isaac insisting that the show's beginning is all about Victor – not "his parents' reaction".

"The whole first season, it's Victor's journey. It's about him accepting and coming to terms with who he is, and being OK with that. It's not about other people's response to it," Isaac explained.

"So it felt to us like, the final moment of that part of his story was him saying those words to his parents. It's not about his parents' reaction. That's the next part of the story...

"What the parents think is certainly important – that's coming – but that felt like the next chapter."

Berger agrees, explaining that Love, Victor's first season was all about getting Victor to "a point where he puts himself first".

"So much of the journey of season one is Victor figuring out how to be true to himself," she said. "We really wanted him to get to a point where he puts himself first at the end of the series, and says, 'Actually, no, this is what I'm going through, and you guys need to hear it right now, even if you're not prepared for it.'

"It was really important for us to get him to that place by the end."

As well as confirming that Victor's parents Armando and Isabel will get their chance to respond to their son's news, we now know that season two will feature "a bit of conflict here and there".

Hinting at a test for Victor and Benji Campbell, Isaac told Digital Spy: "We really can't say too much, but if anyone looks back at a first relationship, especially a high-school relationship, you're sort of learning. Everything is a first. Everything is new

"So for Victor, he's learning along the way. That's obviously going to create a bit of conflict here and there."

Love, Victor is available on Disney+ in the UK and is available on Hulu in the US.
