Release Date

The Summer I Turned Pretty was quickly renewed for a second season before its initial premiere, even without all its original cast returning (Minnie Mills isn’t back, while Kyra Sedgwick and Elsie Fisher will play new recurring roles like Sky and Susannah’s sister). Most major characters will return, however.

Lola Tung will reprise her role of Isabel “Belly” Conklin, with Christopher Briney and Gavin Casalegno reprising their roles as her Cousins Beach brothers Christopher Briney and Gavin Casalegno; Rachel Blanchard and Sean Kaufman will return as Susannah and Steven respectively, as will Jackie Chung and Rain Spencer as Laurel and Taylor respectively.

As for its storylines, the show will adapt the plot from Han’s second novel in his trilogy: It’s Not Summer Without You. In it, Belly and her brothers wrestle with their feelings for one another while Susannah’s cancer comes back after several years in remission. Prime Video will begin releasing three episodes on July 14, and then weekly until the season concludes in August.


Prime Video released a trailer of The Summer I Turned Pretty for its second season this June, showing romantic moments between Belly and Conrad and an emotional scene between Susannah and Laurel. Additionally, the trailer revealed Jeremiah as Belly’s love interest while teaseing their potential romance triangle relationship and Steven’s reunion with Taylor as potential plot points.

The second season will follow plot lines from Han’s second book of his trilogy, It’s Not Summer Without You. The debut episode will air on July 14, with subsequent weekly episodes airing until the finale in September. Cast has come together and shot their scenes at Cousins Beach.

Though season one’s end gave hope for Susannah, mother to both Conrad and Jeremiah, cancer has taken its toll. This news will undoubtedly wreak havoc with their relationship – which had already become tenuous due to their love triangle – between Belly, Jeremiah, Conrad and Susannah.

Lola Tung and Christopher Briney will return as Belly’s love interests, with Gavin Casalegno reprising his role of Jeremiah. Rachel Blanchard will also reprise her role of Susannah. Fans have been eagerly awaiting news on what lies in store for the series!
