Jenny Han’s ‘The Summer I Turned Pretty’ Series Grabs Second Season Renewal Ahead of Season 1 Release


Prime Video’s highly anticipated adaptation of Jenny Han‘s The Summer I Turned Pretty, won’t air until next Friday, June 17, but the streamer has shown their faith in the series success by revealing that a second season has already been ordered.

If the success of the bestselling book is any indication, Prime Video certainly has the right idea. The Summer I Turned Pretty quickly became a bestseller when it dropped back in 2009 and its sequels only made the book more popular. Plus, Han has become one of the biggest names in YA romances over the last decade, with thousands of fans ready to follow whatever project she chooses next — including more seasons of this show.

The second season will be based on the second book in Han’s series, It’s Not Summer Without You, continuing the story of Belly (Lola Tung), Conrad (Christopher Briney) and Jeremiah (Gavin Casalegno) as they deal with the aftermath of the summer shown in season 1. There is so much more to the story that fans are bound to love the show’s second season just as much as they, hopefully, do the first.

LeeAnn is children's librarian who joined Nerds and Beyond in 2020 as a way to stretch her writing skills and connect with others who have the same pop culture passions as she does. She loves music, reading (obviously), and any TV show that can grab and hold her attention. Currently some of her favorite things to nerd out over include Supernatural, Prodigal Son, Louden Swain and Percy Jackson (books, theater, or upcoming show - lets leave the movies out of it).
