The Summer I Turned Pretty: Season 2 Already Confirmed Even Before Season 1 Premieres

The upcoming romantic comedy series, The Summer I Turned Pretty, has been confirmed for a sequel even before the release of the first season.

The Summer I Turned Pretty

Based on Jenny Han’s 2009 novel, the show will debut on Amazon Prime on June 17, 2022. Han is famously known for her romantic comedy novels, such as the hit Netflix series To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. The show was a huge commercial success that Netflix made it a three-part film series.

Confirmed For A Second Season

Lionsgate optioned the rights of the adaptation back in 2013 but Amazon ended up giving the production order last year. They have also officially ordered the second season prior to the release of Season 1. This decision shows how confident the company is with the show’s potential success.

Vernon Sanders, Amazon Studios Head of Global Television, announced the renewal of the series:

As fans anticipate the beach fun and young romance in the upcoming first season, we’re excited to announce more summer to come with a second season of ‘The Summer I Turned Pretty’. We look forward to our Prime Video customers returning to Cousins Beach with Jenny Han and her characters as they continue their coming-of-age journeys for another season.”

The Summer I Turned Pretty Gets 8 Episodes

Since the franchise comprises three books, it is very evident why it needs to be a TV show instead of a film. There can only be so much to cover in a eight-episode season, and this is why they also need a sequel.

Jenny Han’s fans who loved To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before will also find this upcoming show worthy to watch. The story revolves around a love triangle, one girl caught between two brothers. It is the typical summer romance that will make viewers think about their first love and first heartbreak, and the magic of summer.
