Fans of the show do not need to stress as The Summer I Turned Pretty Season 2 is well on its way. As per reports by Deadline, the series received the green light for production weeks prior to the pilot season’s release. Those who have read the novels know that there is still a lot more of Belly’s story left. Therefore, for them, the news regarding the sophomore installment should come as no surprise.
Season 1 only covers the storyline of the first book from “The Summer I Turned Pretty” trilogy. Book two: It’s Not Summer Without You, is currently under production and will serve as season 2 of the series.
The Summer I Turned Pretty Season 2 Release Date
The pilot season of the team romance series dropped less than a month ago. While there is confirmation regarding the second season, the exact release date of The Summer I Turned Pretty Season 2 still remains undisclosed. However, provided that filming starts soon, we expect the second season to release in 2023. To be more precise, a June or July 2023 release date is highly plausible.
As the first season released all episodes at once, we expect the same to happen for the sophomore installment. Further, the first season covered the book’s story over a span of 7 episodes. Therefore, we expect season 2 to have around the same number of episodes as well. However, all of these are just assumptions made on our part. Just like the fans, we, too, await confirmation from the team on the release date and other news regarding season 2.
The teen romance series focuses on the life of Isabel “Belly” Conklin as she goes on her annual summer vacation to a family friend’s beach house. On this vacation, she reunites with her friends, brothers Conrad and Jeremiah. Soon the 16-year-old teen finds herself caught in the middle of a love triangle. The show touches on various topics, such as love triangles, mother-son relations, and a strong female friendship.
The Summer I Turned Pretty Season 2 Plot
Disclaimer: The following section contains major spoilers from season 1 and information from book 2. Therefore, we recommend you only read ahead if you are done watching season 1.
Those who are familiar with both the book and the series, know that the show is an almost exact adaptation of the book. Hence, it is fairly easy to predict what season 2 may have in store for us.
The synopsis for book 2 reads,
“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.”
Unfortunately for fans, Susannah passes away in season 2, succumbing to her illness. This leads to Conrad closing himself off and asking Belly to choose Jeremiah. His disappearance leads Belly and Jeremiah to get together to find him. With the two now working together, it is clear that there is still more to the romance between Belly and Jeremiah.
There is a whole lot more heartbreak, and sadness headed our way as we make our way towards season 2. Nonetheless, alongside the sadness, season 2 also has a bunch of wholesome and beautiful moments in store for us.
In a conversation with E! News, Tung stated,
“There are a lot of really special scenes from the book. There are many, many special moments. I’m very excited to see the trajectory of Belly’s relationship with both of the boys and with everyone in her life. She can only continue to grow and to go on this journey, and I’m very excited to go on it with her.”
We are clearly very excited to see how the upcoming season develops Belly’s personality.
Production for The Summer I Turned Pretty Season 2 is still in its initial stages. Hence, expecting a trailer for the show currently seems premature. If the second installment releases in June or July of next year, a trailer should ideally precede it by 3-4 weeks.
