Has The Summer I Turned Pretty been renewed for Season 3? Here’s what we know:

Renewed Or Cancelled?

Jenny Han is a popular novelist and after the roaring success of her novels, the writer is seeing immense popularity for the swoon-worthy male leads in her stories. Jenny Han’s recent novel adapted into a TV series is the Prime Video original, The Summer I Turned Pretty. The show has released two seasons with a total of 15 episodes – so far at least.

The first season of the show narrated Belly’s journey of falling in love with Conrad while the second season narrates Belly’s heartbreak after which she realises her true feelings for Jeremiah. If you’ve finished watching this one, you may be wondering if The Summer I Turned Pretty has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know so far:

What is The Summer I Turned Pretty about?

The Summer I Turned Pretty tells the story of a teen girl named Belly who measures her life in summers. Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June to August. For her, winters are simply a time to count the weeks until the next summer and a time she spends at a place away from the beach house, away from Susannah, and most importantly, away from Jeremiah and Conrad.

They are the boys that Belly has known since her very first summer—they have been her brother figures, her crushes, and everything in between. But one summer, one wonderful and terrible summer, the more everything changes, the more it all ends up just the way it should have been all along.

Has The Summer I Turned Pretty been renewed for Season 3?

There is some good news for fans! On August 3rd Deadline reported that The Summer I Turned Pretty had been officially greenlit for a third season. Jenny Han will return as showrunner alongside Sarah Kucserka.

While talking about the reception Season 2 has received, Vernon Sanders, head of television, Amazon and MGM Studios said, “We’ve been delighted to see the passion with which fans have embraced The Summer I Turned Pretty, making Summer Fridays an entertainment phenomenon.”

Sanders adds, “This charming, deeply heartfelt series has shown the breadth of our customer base, appealing to a young, diverse set of viewers. Jenny Han is a gifted storyteller, whose fans have been clamoring for the third chapter of this story. We’re excited today to share the news that they have a lot more Summer to look forward to. Thank you to Jenny, Sarah Kucserka, Karen Rosenfelt and our friends at (the production house) wiip for their remarkable work and partnership.”

Not much is known about Season 3 of The Summer I Turned Pretty other than the fact that it has been renewed. We’ll be sure to update this section with more details about the show’s release date over the coming weeks and months when we know more!

What we know about The Summer I Turned Pretty Season 3 so far:

Not much is known about season 3 at the time of writing, given the fact that the show was renewed for a new season before the current WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes. Production on Season 3 will begin only after labour negotiations with those unions have been resolved, so it’s unclear for the moment when audiences can expect The Summer I Turned Pretty to return for a new season.

As Season 2 of The Summer I Turned Pretty was released about a year after the first, one can expect Season 3 to drop in July 2024 or earlier if we are lucky. According to Amazon, Season 2 of The Summer I Turned Pretty is among the 10 most-watched seasons of any series on the service. The premiere episodes more than doubled Season 1’s viewership within three days of launching.

From the way Season 2 is progressing, we can hope to see Belly’s romantic explorations as she makes a final pick between Conrad and Jeremiah. With Steven and Taylor finally making it official, we can expect to see their romantic relationship blossom in the upcoming season. 

We’ll be sure to update this section with more information as it becomes available.
