‘Love, Victor’ star Michael Cimino to star in both Netflix comedy, HBO Max special

Hollywood actor Michael Cimino is all geared up to star in two back-to-back shows, one being Netflix’s teen comedy-drama ‘Never Have I Ever’ and the other being HBO Max’s supernatural romance ‘B-Loved’. Cimino, known for his movie ‘Love, Victor’ is the new addition to the fourth and final season of ‘Never Have I Ever’, reported E! News. Cimino would be playing the character of Ethan, who, according to Netflix, is “a skater and new heartthrob at Sherman Oaks High.” However, since the third instalment of the series is yet to be released, Caminio’s appearance on the show would require a little more patience. Season 3 would start streaming on Netflix on August 12, this year. The release date for Season 4 is yet-to-be-announced.

‘Never Have I Ever’ starred Maitreyi Ramakrishnan in the lead role, along with Darren Barnet, Jaren Lewison, Richa Moorjani, and Poorna Jagannathan, to name a few. On being asked why the famous teenage drama was coming to a conclusion after four seasons, the creator of the show, Mindy Kaling, revealed that it would not make any “sense” if the characters in the series never graduated from “high school”. “Four seasons for a high school show felt like it made sense. They can’t be in high school forever,” shared Kaling.

Apart from ‘Never Have I Ever’, Cimino will also feature in another supernatural teen romance, titled ‘B-Loved’, reported E! News. The two-episode special series will premiere on HBO Max in 2023, around Valentine’s Day. ‘The Thinning’ actor, Peyton List, is also a part of ‘B-Loved’. According to HBO Max, the story of the supernatural teen drama revolves around a “teenage ghost,” played by List, who bonds with a “new boy in town”, Cole, aka Cimion.

“The special revolves around Bea, a free-spirited teenage ghost who forms a special friendship with the new boy in town, Cole, whose house she has been inhabiting for more than 100 years. With the help of a magical ring that allows Cole to see Bea, they’ll rediscover the meaning of being alive, but also the importance of letting go,” said the streamer platform, as reported by E! News.

“The ones that mean the most to me are the ones that say, ‘This show has changed my life because it inspired me to come out. Or ‘I watched the show with my family and it changed my mom’s perspective about things. That’s my whole goal,” said Cimino, as reported by E! News.
