What Can We Expect In Season 2?
Prepare for even more drama, heartache, and growth as we dive into Season 2 of “The Summer I Turned Pretty”. A year has passed since we last saw Belly (Lola Tung), and things have changed in ways she couldn’t have predicted. Flashbacks will take us back to the immediate aftermath of the first season finale, while in the present day, Belly and her family are facing significant life changes.
Her relationships with Conrad (Christopher Briney) and Jeremiah (Gavin Casalegno), once so stable, have become more complicated. Lola Tung reveals that this season gives us a chance to see a different side of her character, showcasing new layers and emotions.
According to Tung, “Belly’s in such a different headspace than when we left her.” Her relationships with Conrad and Jeremiah are no longer what they used to be. Tung adds, “It was really interesting to just get to see a different side of Belly that we hadn’t seen.”
Fans of Jenny Han’s novels may have already anticipated that season two would be based on the second book in the Summer trilogy, “It’s Not Summer Without You.” Tung, who immersed herself in the series after landing the role, was thrilled to continue the journey. The series was renewed even before the first episode premiered last year! “The Summer I Turned Pretty” resonated with fans, quickly becoming the top series on Prime Video and sparking passionate #TeamConrad and #TeamJeremiah fandoms reminiscent of the Twilight era. I mean, it’s just SO hard to choose! I felt like I was in my very own volleyball tournament with whose team I was on.
