If you’ve been anxiously waiting for word on the second season of “Cruel Summer,” we’ve got good news! The next season of the hit thriller is officially on its way and set to premiere this summer. We’ve also got not-so-great news, at least if you were hoping to find out what happens next with Kate, Jeanette, and the rest of the season one crew after the finale.

“Cruel Summer” is officially an anthology series, so each season will focus on a brand-new story with a completely different cast of characters. “I know that nonlinear storytelling is such a big part of why this show is so fun and so we’re going to keep that,” executive producer Tia Napolitano told People in June 2021. Now, nearly two years later, details about the upcoming season are finally starting to be announced, and we’ve got all the scoop.

On Jan. 11, 2023, Freeform gave fans a first look at the fresh cast during Disney’s Winter TCA press tour. Keep reading for everything else we know about “Cruel Summer” season two, including its release date, new cast, and a plot that’s full of mystery, romance, betrayal, and major twists.
