We're venturing back to Cousins Beach for The Summer I Turned Pretty season 2!

In a vacation unlike the rest, The Summer I Turned Pretty introduces us to Belly Conklin and her newfound feelings for the Fischer brothers, Jeremiah and Conrad. Like any good YA, the story is complicated, emotional and begs for a sequel. Fortunately for us, author Jenny Han penned three books in her Summer series, and Amazon is keen on adapting them all. 

“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,” Vernon Sanders, head of global television, Amazon Studios, said in a press release. 

Now, we're marking our 2023 planners

When does season 2 of 'The Summer I Turned Pretty' come out?

Like the debut, the sophomore installment will arrive at the start of the season: get ready for The Summer I Turned Pretty season 2 on Wednesday, June 14, 2023 on Amazon!

Like the beloved series before it, To All the Boys (a.k.a. Netflix royalty), summer is all about navigating uncharted waters, be it crushes, family ups and downs and moments in life that don't go exactly as planned. 

"To me, it means stepping into your own power. I think it's a moment of coming of age, of growing up,"  the author said on CBS Mornings

Though plenty of us have read the series, we can't wait to see where the TV adaptation of Belly's story takes us next—the good and the bad. Likewise, the cast is even curious how things will play out and what will differ from each medium. 

"I want to know what happens! I read the book, but I haven’t seen the script yet," Christopher Briney, who plays Conrad, told Glamour

According to WCET News 6, the production crew had put up permits throughout the town of Wilmington, North Carolina in July 2022, shortly after the premiere, and were already hard at work on season 2.

What will 'The Summer I Turned Pretty' season 2 be about?


The second season is set to follow Han's book, It's Not Summer Without You. In the first novel, the boys deal with losing their mother to cancer, and Conrad finds himself in an extremely dark place. Han also gave fans a fair warning that things are going to look a little different on screen than they did in the novel, It's Not Summer Without You

"There’s always gonna be changes here and there, so I guess you’ll just have to wait and see," she told E! News in 2022. "I’m the one doing the changes, so I guess get mad at me, because I’m the one who’s changing it!"

In the meantime...

We get it—patience isn't our forte, either. But since you've likely finished The Summer I Turned Pretty already—hey, maybe you've even streamed it twice—we decided to take the liberty of helping you stay occupied until our return to Cousins Beach. 

Crack open a few books like The Summer I Turned Pretty to get lost in similar coming-of-ages tales, which make perfect accompaniments to the beach. While you're at it, make sure to download The Summer I Turned Pretty soundtrack to your Spotify playlists—it has all of your favorites!

Head over to Netflix for XO, Kitty, To All the Boys' spinoff on Thursday, May 18. We'll follow Lara Jean's lil' sis, a matchmaking wiz, venture off to KISS (Korea Independent School of Seoul) to pursue a connection with a boy named Dae.
