Surviving Summer Season 2: When will it release?
If you recall, the series was renewed for a second season back in November 2022 after it became one of the most talked-about series in the streaming platform’s catalog. Since then, the fans have been patiently waiting for any update relating to the potential release date but have been met with no luck as no details for this matter have been disclosed by the network. But if we have to speculate, the new episodes will premiere sometime in the mid-to-late 2023 streaming season.
According to the viewers, the most likely time frame will be the fall season of 2023!
One of the major factors that have led to the delay in the announcement of the release date is the fact that despite being renewed for months, the production of the second season just began a month ago on February 2, 2023, which is quite surprising yet cheerful news for the fans! The international Netflix hit television series commenced production on the iconic beaches and stunning surf coast found along the Great Ocean Road in Wadawurrung Country in Victoria.
Moreover, if we take most of the Netflix series into consideration with a bit of speculation, then the new season will have the same premiere time as other shows on the streaming service, which is 12:00 a.m. (PT) or 3:00 a.m. (ET). In order to receive updates on when the show premieres on Netflix, interested viewers can also enable notifications. Of course, this is just speculation, and the fans should wait and keep a closer eye on the social media handles of the show to know about all the latest details and updates.
The series is created by Joanna Werner and Josh Mapleston and produced by Werner Film Productions for ZDF Studios and Netflix. The second season will follow Summer Torres when she returns to Shorehaven and stuns her Aussie mates with her newfound surfing skills. As she pursues her surfing dream, she’ll contend with rollercoaster romances, a mysterious new coach… and a rival surfer determined to take her down. Surviving Summer Season 2 will be directed again by Sian Davies and Christian Van Vuuren.
Giving context to the filming schedule, Joanna Werner, producer of the show, stated, “We were so thrilled with the response around the world to the first season of Surviving Summer on Netflix and couldn’t be more excited to be commencing shoot on the second season. Our fabulous cast has just finished their intensive surf training camp and is ready to go, along with some exciting new cast members. We have a brilliant crew assembled on the Surf Coast, and the sun is shining here in Anglesea—here’s to a great shoot!”
The second season will see the return of Sky Katz as the unstoppable Summer, Kai Lewins as Ari Gibson, João Gabriel Marinho as Marlon Sousa, Savannah La Rain as Bodhi Mercer, and reigning Open Women’s Queensland Surf Champion Lilliana ‘Lil’ Bowrey as Poppy Tetanui. Also, joining the cast this season are Olympia Valance (Neighbours, Playing For Keeps) as Elo, Annabel Wolfe (Black Snow) as Wren, and Josh MacQueen (Black Snow) as Baxter. The series received production support from Vic Screen.
The next season is speculated to have 10 episodes to be consistent with the prior season. Additionally, the entire series is available exclusively on Netflix with a wide range of membership options. The basic membership starts at $9.99 per month, and the standard membership starts at $15.49 per month, with no additional cost for any of their services depending on the package you choose.
While you wait for the second season to premiere, check out the first season, which reflects on the rebellious teenager Summer Torres, who is expelled from her high school in Brooklyn and sent to stay with the family of an old friend of her mother’s in Australia, where she falls in with a clique of competitive surfers.
