Jenny Han’s acclaimed To All the Boys book series became a hit Netflix film trilogy, and fans have been demanding for more of her work to be adapted for the big screen. These fans are in luck, since Han’s other blockbuster novel trilogy, beginning with The Summer I Turned Pretty, has been adapted into a series, which will premiere on Prime Video on June 17.
However, before the first season began, the series was renewed in the second season. Here’s everything you need to know about The Summer I Turned Pretty Season 2, including cast updates and upcoming releases. To All the Boys was the first adaptation, but the summer I changed cleanly was the first
Although To All the Boys was the first adaptation, The Summer I Turned Pretty was the first. The volumes, which were published in 2009, 2010, and 2011, follow Belly’s inner thoughts as she spends a routine summer at Cousins Beach with her mother, brother, her mother’s closest friend, Susannah, and Susannah’s two children, Jeremiah and Conrad.
However, Belly has matured much since their previous summer together, and desire begins to play a problematic part in Belly’s relationships with her friends.
The book series is popular not just for fulfilling YA romance cravings, but also for presenting a wonderful female bond between the two mothers, Laurel and Susannah. The stories also reflect the complicated feelings of early relationships when bigger children lord it over smaller ones and puberty alters everything.
Fans of the novels are hopeful that the adaptation does justice to these characters’ narrative threads, and that the series — which Han is executive producing — will continue with another season.
Will there be another installment?
No information about the second season has been released, but it makes sense to focus on the material in Han’s trilogy’s second book, “It’s Not Summer Without You.” This more mature and emotional story continues after Berry and Jeremiah disappeared while looking for Conrad at Cousins Beach.
Han is also delighted to see her characters’ adventures continue on film. Han said in a press statement regarding the second season, “When I chose to adapt Summer for television, I knew we’d need more than one season to respect the tale we’re portraying.”
The Summer Turned Pretty Season 2 Cast
Although no official cast announcements for Season 2 have been announced, Han’s second novel has almost all of the same characters as the first, so fans may anticipate a fairly similar cast. The primary characters, Belly and Conrad, are performed by newbies to the business, Lola Tung and Christopher Briney. Jeremiah and Steven, their co-stars, may be more well-known.
Gavin Casalegno, who portrays Jeremiah, debuted in the feature film Noah with Russell Crowe and Anthony Hopkins, and he also appeared in The Vampire Diaries as Young Damon. Sean Kaufman, who portrays Belly’s elder brother, Steven, on Manifest and Law & Order: SVU, may also be familiar.
The mothers, on the other hand, are the most identifiable. Laurel is played by Jackie Chung from Grey’s Anatomy and Station 19, while Jeremiah and Conrad’s mother, Susannah, is played by Rachel Blanchard from the legendary ’90s drama 7th Heaven and, more recently, Fargo.
The Summer I Turned Pretty Season 2 Release Date
It’s difficult to predict when Season 2 of the show will launch, but fans can expect to wait at least a year, given that the announcement occurred before Season 1 had aired. This early statement, though, may indicate a quicker turnaround. The Port City Daily News, a Wilmington, North Carolina newspaper located near the Season 1 shooting sites, stated that production would return to the region in summer 2022 for Season 2.
The Summer I Turned Pretty Season 2 Trailer
There hasn’t been a trailer released for Season 2 of The Summer I Turned Pretty, but it’s just a matter of time until there’s more adolescent angst to satiate your summertime appetites.
