The Summer I Turned Pretty season 2 has officially begun filming and is confirmed by a behind-the-scenes photo featuring the show’s star Lola Tung.
The Summer I Turned Pretty season 2 has started filming as shown in a new behind-the-scenes photo. The Summer I Turned Pretty first premiered on June 17 on Prime Video. The series is based on the book series of the same name written by Jenny Han. The series follows 16-year-old Isabel “Belly” Conklin (Lola Tung) who heads to Cousins Beach with her mom Laurel (Jackie Chung), and brother Steven (Sean Kaufman) to spend summer break with the Fischer family. However, over the summer, she is caught in a love triangle between Susannah Fischer’s (Rachel Blanchard) two sons, Jeremiah (Gavin Casalegno) and Conrad (Christopher Briney).
Belly has been going to Cousins Beach for as long as she can remember, due to her mom and Susannah’s close friendship. Meanwhile, she has always harbored a crush on Conrad ever since she was a little girl. With Conrad persistently feigning disinterest in her, though, she begins to consider dating Jeremiah, who has always been her best friend. Upon its release, The Summer I Turned Pretty was very positively received by viewers who enjoyed the tender coming-of-age story with its love triangle twist. Ahead of its premiere, The Summer I Turned Pretty was renewed for season 2.
The Sumer I Turned Pretty Twitter page shared a behind-the-scenes photo to commemorate the beginning of season 2 filming. The simple caption indicated that the cameras are rolling for season 2. Meanwhile, the photo saw Tung smiling at the camera alongside The Summer I Turned Pretty author Han. Check out the image below:
The fact that The Summer I Turned Pretty season 2 is officially filming means that more photos may be forthcoming, as well as hints and teasers about what to expect next. Meanwhile, the timing of season 2’s filming is in line with viewers’ anticipation for a potential season 2 release date sometime in the summer of 2023. With season 1 premiering in summer and the series being summer-themed, it makes sense for season 2 to debut around the same time next year. For now, the exact plot details of season 2 have not been confirmed. It will most likely follow the storyline of book 2 of The Summer I Turned Pretty series, which is titled, It’s Not Summer Without You. However, Han has been open about changing several details in The Summer I Turned Pretty series from what happened in the books which adds uncertainty to season 2’s plot.
Regardless of what season 2 holds, it seems Tung and Han are eager to tackle it. Seeing Han featured in the first photo of filming is also likely to reassure her fans that the author is very much involved in the production process of the show. This is why The Summer I Turned Pretty boasted such a strong first season, with Han playing a hands-on role and finding a balance between being faithful to the book while also finding new, meaningful ways to expand the story. Viewers can look forward to further updates and details as The Summer I Turned Pretty season 2 filming progresses further.
