The Summer I Turned Pretty fans can all breathe a sigh of relief as Amazon Prime has finally announced when the TV show will return to our screens. The series, which is an adaptation of the Jenny Han novel of the same name, stole fans’ hearts last summer.
News on the show had been pretty quiet until last month when fans finally got an official poster confirming the show would return this summer (obviously). However, it did give fans a look at the returning cast members like Lola Tung, Chris Briney and Gavin Casalegno. It also included a first look at new additions to the series like Elsie Fisher.
Now, we have a new update on the release date and how many episodes there will be in the upcoming season.
The second series of the show got an early green light when it was confirmed before the first series had even dropped on Amazon Prime. Production wrapped on the second season in November 2022, and fans had been anxiously awaiting any other updates.
Not to mention the fact that Taylor Swift dropped This Love (Taylor’s Version) for the show, which got nominated for an MTV award. The show heavily features Taylor’s music too…so who knows, maybe there could be a treat on the horizon for Swifties too.
So when is The Summer I Turned Pretty season two dropping on Amazon Prime? Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming season.
The Summer I Turned Pretty season two release date
The Summer I Turned Pretty is scheduled to drop on July 15 when we will get not one, but three episodes. The episodes from then on will be released weekly in the following order:
July 14 - Love Lost, Love Scene, Love Sick
July 21 - Love Game
July 28 - Love Fool
August 4 - Love Fest
August 11 - Love Affair
August 18 - Love Triangle
The Summer I Turned Pretty season two cast
An official full cast list has yet to be released for the upcoming series. However, some new characters have been announced, as well as a fan favourite from the first series saying goodbye.
Minnie Mills, who played Shayla, Steven’s love interest, confirmed she would not return for a second season with a heartbreaking yet heartwarming post to Instagram on April 19. The length caption began with: “First and foremost, I want to say thank you to Shayla. Playing Shayla was such a privilege, she taught me so much and helped me grow not only as an actor, but as a person.”
Minnie went on to call her role on TSITP “a dream come true,” an opportunity to move the needle on Asian female representation on-screen. Shayla was Minnie’s first acting role.
As for new faces joining the cast, it was announced back in August 2022 that actors Kyra Sedgwick and Elsie Fisher had been cast in recurring undisclosed roles.
Here is a full list of cast members confirmed to be returning:
- Lola Tung as Isabel "Belly" Conklin
- Jackie Chung as Laurel Park
- Rachel Blanchard as Susannah Fisher
- Christopher Briney as Conrad Fisher
- Gavin Casalegno as Jeremiah Fisher
- Sean Kaufman as Steven Conklin
- Alfredo Narciso as Cleveland Castillo
- Colin Ferguson as John Conklin
- Tom Everett Scott as Adam Fisher
