A “Love, Simon” spinoff series is in the works at Disney+, the Walt Disney Company’s planned streaming video service.

Hailed by critics for its LGBTQ inclusivity, “Love, Simon” is a 2018 coming-of-age film about a closeted gay teen growing up in the suburbs of Atlanta. The film, which earned nearly $67 million worldwide, was based on Becky Albertalli’s young adult novel “Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda.”

“As I’m sure you might have heard, we’re getting a Love, Simon spinoff series on the new Disney+ service!” Albertalli wrote on Twitter. “I’m extremely excited and I can’t say much.”

Though Albertalli did not share many details surrounding the project, she did confirm that the series will not be an adaptation of her book “Leah on the Offbeat” — the sequel to “Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda” — but rather a different story “set in the world of Simon.”
