Prime Video’s The Summer I Turned Pretty has been renewed for a second season a week before the first season premieres on July 17, according to Variety.
“When I decided to adapt ‘Summer’ for television, I knew we’d need more than one season to honor the story we are telling,” said Jenny Han, the author of The Summer I Turned Pretty trilogy of which the TV series is based, in a statement to the news outlet. “To receive a second season pickup ahead of the premiere of Season One is beyond my wildest dreams. I am so grateful to Amazon Studios for this amazing vote of confidence in our show, and cannot wait to bring our incredible team back together to tell the next chapter in our story.”
In February 2021, Prime Video picked up Summer I Turned Pretty to series. There will be seven episodes in the first season.
“As fans anticipate the beach fun and young romance in the upcoming first season, we’re excited to announce more summer to come with a second season of The Summer I Turned Pretty,” Vernon Sanders, head of global television at Amazon Studios, told Variety. “We look forward to our Prime Video customers returning to Cousins Beach with Jenny Han and her characters as they continue their coming-of-age journeys for another season.”
The Summer I Turned Pretty is a multigenerational drama about a love triangle involving one girl and two brothers, the changing relationship between mothers and their offspring and the enduring strength of strong female friendship.
Han is best known for her To All the Boys trilogy, which has been made into a series of Netflix hit films.
