The Summer I Turned Pretty Season 2 Plot

The second season will take inspiration from the second book titled, “It’s Not Summer Without You,” which was released back in 2010. 

The official synopsis of the second season reads, “Belly used to count down the days until she could return to Cousins Beach, but with Conrad and Jeremiah fighting over her heart and the return of Susannah’s cancer, she’s not sure summer will ever be the same. When an unexpected visitor threatens the future of Susannah’s beloved house, Belly has to rally the gang to come together—and to decide once and for all where her heart lies.”

If you have read the novel, then you’ll know that the book shows Belly finding out what comes after falling in love in this follow-up to The Summer I Turned Pretty from the New York Times bestselling author of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, Jenny Han. Can summer truly be summer without Cousins Beach? It used to be that Belly counted the days until summer until she was back at Cousins Beach with Conrad and Jeremiah.

But not this year. Not after Susannah got sick again and Conrad stopped caring. Everything that was right and good has fallen apart, leaving Belly wishing summer would never come. But when Jeremiah calls saying Conrad has disappeared, Belly knows what she must do to make things right again. And it can only happen back at the beach house, the three of them together, the way things used to be. If this summer really and truly is the last summer, it should end the way it started – at Cousins Beach.

In addition to this, the author (Jenny Han) of the book series, stated, “When I decided to adapt Summer for television, I knew we’d need more than one season to honor the story we are telling.” Further adding, “To receive a second season pickup ahead of the premiere of Season One is beyond my wildest dreams. I am so grateful to Amazon Studios for this amazing vote of confidence in our show, and cannot wait to bring our incredible team back together to tell the next chapter in our story.”
