Renewed Or Cancelled?
Surviving Summer is the latest tween drama, combining sun, sand, surfing and soapy shenanigans. With 10 episodes, each clocking in at a little under 27 minutes, this is a very easy show to slip into.
If you’ve finished watching this one, you may be wondering if this one’s been renewed or cancelled.
What is Surviving Summer about?
The story centers on Summer Torres, a wild child who has an estranged relationship with her mother Margot.
With a big work gig coming up, Margot ships Summer off to the other side of the world (Australia to be precise!) to stay with her family friends, the Gibson’s, while she jets off for her next career opportunity.
When Summer arrives in the tiny town of Shorehaven, she’s taken in by the Gibson family. Of course, Summer plots her escape and attempts to make it back to New York.
Despite her best efforts, Summer soon comes to enjoy staying in Shorehaven, partly thanks to forming a bond with kindred spirit Ari Gibson.

Has Surviving Summer been renewed for season 2?
At the time of writing, Surviving Summer has been renewed for a second season. Given the ending though, that’s perhaps quite surprising. We did get a nice conclusive chapter, but it appears that Netflix have faith that this is going to be another summer scorcher for the platform.
Generally Netflix gauge numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate per episode. With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly (ala. Squid Game, Bridgerton & Irregulars). Other times, it can take months before Netflix make a decision over a show’s future.
So far, Surviving Summer has had a pretty mixed reception from critics but generally favourable from audiences, which may well be why this has been renewed.

We’ll be sure to update this section with more details as they become available.
What we know about season 2 so far:
Barely anything is known about season 2 at this point, given Netflix have only just green-lit a sequel.
Quoting the article linked above, fans can expect the following:
- Season 2 sees the return of fan favourites Sky Katz as the feisty Summer, Kai Lewins as Ari Gibson, João Gabriel Marinho as Marlon Sousa, Savannah La Rain as Bodhi Mercer and reigning Open Women’s Queensland Surf Champion Lilliana ‘Lil’ Bowrey as Poppy Tetanui.
For now though, we’ll have to wait and see what a new season has in store for us but this is great news for fans of the show!
