After Belly’s love triangle between brothers Conrad and Jeremiah took over the hearts and minds of fans, when will the coming-of-age series “The Summer I Turned Pretty” return for its second season?

The first season of the series, adapted from the YA bestseller of the same name, followed Belly (Lola Tung) as she returns to Cousins Beach and realizes that she might have feelings for Jeremiah (Gavin Casalegno) — and wonders what this revelation means for her long-time crush on Conrad (Christopher Briney).

The series also dives into the friendship between mothers Laurel (Jackie Chung) and Susannah (Rachel Blanchard), who each struggle with their own challenges related to love and family. Following the plot of the YA novel, Susannah also reveals that she was diagnosed with cancer despite keeping it a secret from her sons so they could enjoy the summer.

Who will be in “The Summer I Turned Pretty” Season 2?

Lola Tung will return as Belly, alongside Christopher Briney (Conrad), Gavin Casalegno (Jeremiah), Sean Kaufman (Steven), David Iacono (Cam), Rain Spencer (Taylor) Jackie Chung (Laurel) and Alfredo Narciso (Cleveland).

Newcomers include Elsie Fisher and Kyra Sedgwick, both of whom have been cast in recurring roles for Season 2.

Although Susannah passes away between the first and second books, Rachel Blanchard might make appearances through flashbacks, though it has not been confirmed. It’s also entirely possible that Susannah is still alive when Season 2 begins, as author and showrunner Jenny Han made a number of changes to her own books in Season 1.

What will season 2 be about?

The overall plot of the second book in the series, titled “It’s Not Summer Without You,” sees Susannah’s death create a rift between Belly and Conrad while bringing Belly and Jeremiah closer as they search for Conrad after he goes missing. It is unclear if that exact storyline will follow in Season 2 of the series, as changes to the adaptation have been made.

Will there be more seasons of “The Summer I Turned Pretty?”

Despite not having any confirmation of additional seasons, if each season follows a book in the series, we are hopeful that there might be a third season to match the final book in the trilogy, titled, “We’ll Always Have Summer.” Han has an overall deal with Amazon, so her future at the streamer is bright.
