If you're anything like us, you'll love a good teen romance TV show - and it's even better when it's set in a gorgeous summery location. As if by magic, Amazon Prime Video answered all of our prayers with The Summer I Turned Pretty, which dropped on the platform last month.
The series followed the story of Belly, a teenager who finds herself in a love triangle with two brothers (and her two oldest friends), Conrad and Jeremiah. The TV adaptation is based on the book trilogy by author and series creator Jenny Han (who also wrote the To All The Boys books). It's safe to say we're very invested, with fans now calling for a season two.
Here's what we know about The Summer I Turned Pretty season two so far...
Has The Summer I Turned Pretty season 2 started filming?
It's good news, as The Summer I Turned Pretty season two is officially happening *and* it's even started filming.
Prime Video confirmed the news with an Insta photo of cast member Lola Tung, who plays Belly, and author and showrunner Jenny Han on set - complete with a branded director's chair. They wrote in the caption, "We are back in Cousins Beach! Season 2 is underway. ☀️ @thesummeriturnedpretty."
Who will star in The Summer I Turned Pretty S2?
As Prime Video's behind-the-scenes S2 pic confirms, Lola Tung will be officially returning as Belly.
As for the rest of the cast, we'd expect Christopher Briney and Gavin Casalegno to come back as Conrad and Jeremiah. There's also Sean Kaufman (Steven), Alfredo Narciso (Cleveland), Minnie Mills (Shayla), Jackie Chung (Laurel), Colin Ferguson (John), and Tom Everett Scott (Adam) - all of whom we'd be hoping to reappear.
With The Summer I Turned Pretty based on Jenny Han's book trilogy, there's sadly one character whose future is uncertain. Susannah, played by Rachel Blanchard, dies between the first and second book. So, if S2 sticks to the progression of the novels, we might not be seeing Rachel back on screen.
What might happen in The Summer I Turned Pretty S2?
As the series follows Han's original three books, it's likely that series two may take some inspiration from her second novel.
Book two takes place after Susannah (Conrad and Jeremiah's mum) has tragically passed away following her battle with cancer. Belly and Conrad's relationship is affected, with Conrad then running away to escape. We then follow Belly and Jeremiah on a road trip to track Conrad down, with the pair then seeming to grow closer.
Season one did change some elements of Han's original novel, so there might be some S2 changes too!
Is there a release date for The Summer I Turned Pretty S2?
Unfortunately there isn't a release date for The Summer I Turned Pretty S2 just yet. However, filming has begun, so at least that's something!
Season one dropped on Amazon Prime Video on 17th June. Assuming that the show will keep in line with its summer theme, we'd expect season two to air in spring/summer 2023.
We're already counting down the days!
