“The Summer I Turned Pretty” Cast: Who’s Single and Who’s Taken?
We’ve been yearning for “The Summer I Turned Pretty” season two ever since we devoured the first season of the teen drama adapted from Jenny Han’s cult-favorite YA book series. The Lola Tung-led show was a massive hit and put its young stars like Tung, Christopher Briney, Gavin Casalegno, and more on the map.
“The Summer I Turned Pretty” is a multigenerational drama that focuses on the protagonist, Isabel “Belly” Conklin’s, summer at the fictitious Cousins Beach, which serves as a jumping-off point for the teenager to not only explore the wondrous, confusing, and heart-stopping phases of young love, but also to find herself.
Season one sees Belly become entangled in a love triangle as her lifelong crush, Conrad (Briney), begins to reciprocate her feelings just as his younger brother, Jeremiah (Casalegno), also begins to pursue her romantically. Belly chooses Conrad at the end of the season, but the cancer diagnosis of his mother, Susannah (Rachel Blanchard), threatens to derail their budding romances. Season two picks up where the first season left off, with Belly coping with the emotional fallout of Susannah’s death and still torn between Conrad and Jeremiah.
Considering the show centers on young love, viewers are probably wondering what these young actors’ love lives look like IRL.
