*Spoilers for The Summer I Turned Pretty below!*
We’re officially heading back to Cousins Beach for another eventful summer with our faves from The Summer I Turned Pretty. When the series based on Jenny Han’s novel of the same name premiered its first season on June 17, 2022, it had already been picked up for a second season.
“When I decided to adapt ‘Summer’ for television, I knew we’d need more than one season to honor the story we are telling,” Jenny said in a statement. “To receive a second season pickup ahead of the premiere of Season One is beyond my wildest dreams. I am so grateful to Amazon Studios for this amazing vote of confidence in our show, and cannot wait to bring our incredible team back together to tell the next chapter in our story.”
Ahead, find all the details on season 2 of The Summer I Turned Pretty, including the cast, plot details, release date, and more.
When does The Summer I Turned Pretty season 2 come out?
Since season 1 premiered in June, we’ll probably have to hang tight for season 2. Hopefully, we can spend summer 2023 with our Cousins crew. In the meantime, make sure to sign up for Prime Video so you’re ready when season 2 drops. Subscriptions start at $14.99 a month, plus, you can place online orders with 2-day shipping from Prime. It’s totally a win-win situation.
What is The Summer I Turned Pretty season 2 about?
Lucky for us, The Summer I Turned Pretty is based on the book trilogy by Jenny Han, so we pretty much have the source material before season 2 even hits the Prime Video streamer. Season 1, which is based on the first book, follows 16-year-old Belly as she spends her summer in Cousins Beach with her mom, her older brother Steven, and her mom’s childhood best friend, Susannah, and her sons, Conrad and Jeremiah. The end of last season left us with a major cliffhanger as Belly and Conrad shared a kiss on the beach... while Belly is technically dating his brother, Jere (who still doesn’t know what happened, BTW).
If season 2 is like season 1, then it’ll follow the original plot of the novel with a some modernized changes. The synopsis for the second book, It’s Not Summer Without You, is as follows:
It used to be that Belly counted the days until summer, until she was back at Cousins Beach with Conrad and Jeremiah. But not this year. Not after Susannah got sick again and Conrad stopped caring. Everything that was right and good has fallen apart, leaving Belly wishing summer would never come. But when Jeremiah calls saying Conrad has disappeared, Belly knows what she must do to make things right again. And it can only happen back at the beach house, the three of them together, the way things used to be. If this summer really and truly is the last summer, it should end the way it started—at Cousins Beach.
Who is in The Summer I Turned Pretty season 2 cast?
Our series regulars will make their return for season 2, including Lola Tung, Gavin Casalegno, Christopher Briney, Sean Kaufman, and Minnie Mills. Eighth Grade star Elsie Fisher joins season 2 as Skye, while Kyra Sedwick joins in a yet-to-be-named role. Elsie made the official announcement by posting an Instagram Reel in her trailer with Kyra. “#TheSummerITurnedPretty SEE U SOON PALS ☀️💙,” she captioned the post.
Skye isn’t a character in Jenny Han’s original book series, which means the TV adaptation is bringing some newness to Cousins Beach. “We get to create this whole new person,” Elsie told E! News in a recent interview. “Part of what really drew me to the project is that I get to play a person that still feels very true to myself, but is different from the kind of character people have seen me play before.”
Prime Video has yet to confirm any additional casting details and character descriptions, but you already know we’ll be reporting back here with all the updates.
Is The Summer I Turned Pretty season 2 done filming?
It looks like we're returning to Cousins Beach sooner than expected. The show's official Instagram account shared the news on November 8, 2022 with a photo of Lola Tung, Christopher Briney, Gavin Casalegno, and author/executive producer, Jenny Han. "and that’s a wrap on season 2 🎬," the photo's caption reads.
On July 25, 2022, the show announced on social media that they’re “rolling on season 2,” posting a photo of Jenny and Lola together on set. We’ll be on the lookout for more sneak peeks on social media as production continues into the fall.
“It’s truly better than I could have ever hoped for,” newcomer Elsie Fisher shared with E! News about filming TSITP season 2. “Especially because I had nerves stepping into a pre-established show.”
