The new adventures in love this season will build on last season’s success, which included being shortlisted for a Cannes Lion award in audio innovation. The second installment focuses on normalizing HIV prevention and increasing awareness among the Latin LGBTQ community, members of which made up almost 25 percent of all HIV diagnoses in 2021.

The seven-episode season, which includes one entirely in Spanish, follows pop star Jules (Ruiz) and football player Teo (Gutierrez), both on the cusp of stardom, who meet at the final championship game of the U.S. Football Association. Together, they fight to find what they need to be for themselves, each other, their families and their fans, according to Harley & Co., the entertainment studio that produces the podcast alongside ViiV Healthcare — the only pharmaceutical company solely focused on HIV and AIDS.

“We will never make a meaningful impact on HIV until we not only reach the people with reasons to prevent HIV but also engage their networks of support,” said ViiV Healthcare Head of U.S. External Affairs Marc Meachem. “The second season of Love in Gravity does just that — focusing on relationships between mothers and sons, family members, faith-based communities and more in order to model conversations that eliminate stigma and make HIV prevention more possible.”

Love in Gravity season two, directed by Ranada Shepard, premieres Oct. 5 and is written by former NFL player R.K. Russell, award-winning YA novelist Lilliam Rivera, Black List/Latinx List winning author Daniel F. Perez, and writer and actor Joél Pérez.
