It’s finally time to go back to Cousins Beach. Prime Video’s hit series The Summer I Turned Pretty, based on the books by Jenny Han (of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before fame) has returned for a long-awaited second season. The show premiered last year, winning us over as our new favorite YA comfort binge, but this time around, things are even more emotional than we remembered.
When actress Lola Tung, who stars as Belly Conklin, told us that “Belly’s in such a different head space than when we left her,” she wasn’t kidding. The sophomore season explores grief, heartbreak, and family drama alongside young love and friendship. Even though she got the boy of her dreams, Conrad Fisher, in the season 1 finale, the new installment tests their feelings for each other. And his younger brother Jeremiah is not out of the picture yet. Here’s how to follow along with the buzzy love triangle.
When do new episodes of The Summer I Turned Pretty drop?
