The Summer I Turned Pretty is the latest young adult romantic drama adaptation from author Jenny Han (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before). With Amazon Prime Video debuting this seven-part series that explores fifteen-year-old Belly’s eventful summer in Cousins beach as the teen strives to be lucky in love. Belly wants to embark on her first romance this summer, but finds herself trapped in a love triangle with brothers Conrad and Jeremiah instead, with all three teens residing at the same summer house.

The series follows your standard teen romance structure, with the boys vying for Belly’s affection and the teenager struggling to decide where her heart truly lies. There’s plenty of ups and downs for our lead this season, who is desperate to become popular and fall hopelessly in love. It’s an odd tone for a teen drama to strike, focusing so heavily on looks and this unhealthy obsession over appearance, especially in 2022, with only one throwaway line hinting at a purer message in the entire series.

Will there be a season 2 of the Amazon original series The Summer I Turned Pretty – renewed or cancelled status

Status: Renewed

Amazon has renewed The Summer I Turned Pretty before a single episode has even aired, which is a very rare announcement indeed. The show, which is based on a trilogy of novels from Jenny Han, clearly has the potential to explore more of this story and the streaming service feel they are on to a definite winner with this one. They must be extremely confident if they’re announcing a second season even before the viewer’s numbers have been totted up or reviews have been released. Amazon obviously see the potential and the dollar signs when it comes to this teen drama.

The first season focused on the first book, leaving two whole novels-worth of material to utilize in further instalments. Season one ended with the debutante ball. Belly chose Jeremiah for the dance, although in the very end scene changes her mind and kisses Conrad on the beach instead. Everyone becomes aware of Susannah’s harrowing secret, which makes for an emotional finale. The two families are heartbroken to discover that she has cancer and doesn’t want to endure any possibly life-saving treatment. A second season will surely address Susannah’s battle with this deadly disease and Belly’s continued love triangle antics with Jeremiah and Conrad.
