The Summer I Turned Pretty is a coming-of-age romance series based on the novel of the same name by Jenny Han. Prime video recently released a trailer for the second season, which is set to premiere in July this year. The trailer offers a sneak peek at what’s in store for Belly, Conrad, and Jeremiah, as well as a preview of Taylor Swift’s rerecording of one of her popular songs which will be featured on her upcoming album, Speak Now (Taylor’s Version).
What new developments can we expect in Season 2?
The second season will pick up right where the first season left off, with 16-year-old Isabel Conklin (also known as Belly and is played by Lola Tung) and her childhood friend who turned into a love interest over the years, Conrad Fisher (Christopher Briney) confessing their feelings for each other. Unfortunately, Belly finds herself in a huge mess of a love triangle as Jeremiah Fisher (Conrad’s brother, played by Gavin Casalegno), comes out with his romantic feelings for Belly as well.
This new season of The Summer I Turned Pretty is sure to be full of new characters and surprises with viewers likely to be on edge constantly, eager to see what happens next and how the story unfolds. Some of the new developments that we can expect include the resolution of the love triangle between Belly, Conrad, and Jeremiah; Susannah’s cancer journey; Belly’s coming-of-age story; the Fisher family dynamics; and the introduction of new relationships and people. It will be interesting to see how these new developments affect the characters and the story, and how they ultimately shape Belly’s journey into adulthood.
