The Summer I Turned Pretty season 2: release date, how to watch and full cast list
and live on Freeview channel 276
Fans of The Summer I Turned Pretty finally got an update on season two with Amazon releasing a brand new poster for the upcoming season. The poster also confirmed that the adaptation of the Jenny Han trilogy will return to screens much sooner than you think.
The second series of the show got an early green light when it was confirmed before the first series had even dropped on Amazon Prime. Production wrapped on the second season in November 2022, and fans had been anxiously awaiting any other updates.
News had been painfully quiet, until April 21 when a brand new poster for the show featuring some of the returning cast members including of course Lola Tung, Chris Briney and Gavin Casalegno confirming that the new series was coming soon. And seemingly hinting that a trailer could be imminent.
The Summer I Turned Pretty book trilogy follows the coming-of-age of 16-year-old Isabel “Belly” Conklin as she spends summers in the fictional beach town of Cousins Beach with her mother Laurel, older brother Steven, and her mother’s childhood best friend Susannah and her sons, Conrad and Jeremiah, who Belly gets wrapped up in a love triangle with.
So, when is The Summer I Turned Pretty season two set to come out? Here’s everything you need to know about the Prime Video series.
The Summer I Turned Pretty season two release date
The new poster for The Summer I Turned Pretty confirmed the show would be coming in Summer 2023. However, there is no specific date yet.
The first series aired in June 2022, and there is usually a year between shows so June 2023 could be a good guess. However, this is just our desperate speculation.
The Summer I Turned Pretty season two cast
An official full cast list has yet to be released for the upcoming series. However, some new characters have been announced, as well as a fan favourite from the first series saying goodbye.
Minnie Mills, who played Shayla, Steven’s love interest, confirmed she would not return for a second season with a heartbreaking yet heartwarming post to Instagram on April 19. The length caption began with: “First and foremost, I want to say thank you to Shayla. Playing Shayla was such a privilege, she taught me so much and helped me grow not only as an actor, but as a person.”
Minnie went on to call her role on TSITP “a dream come true,” an opportunity to move the needle on Asian female representation on-screen. Shayla was Minnie’s first acting role.
As for new faces joining the cast, it was announced back in August 2022 that actors Kyra Sedgwick and Elsie Fisher had been cast in recurring undisclosed roles.
Here is a full list of cast members confirmed to be returning:
- Lola Tung as Isabel "Belly" Conklin
- Jackie Chung as Laurel Park
- Rachel Blanchard as Susannah Fisher
- Christopher Briney as Conrad Fisher
- Gavin Casalegno as Jeremiah Fisher
- Sean Kaufman as Steven Conklin
- Alfredo Narciso as Cleveland Castillo
- Colin Ferguson as John Conklin
- Tom Everett Scott as Adam Fisher
