Based on Jenny Han’s young adult book series of the same name, the first season of The Summer I Turned Pretty turned out to be a hit when it dropped on Amazon Prime Video last year.

The series centers on Belly, a girl who has been in love with a friend ever since they started going on holiday together with their families. Season 1 is set in what’s meant to be the perfect summer – but the drama ramps up as Belly gets caught in a love triangle.

The Summer I Turned Pretty Season 2 cast and characters

Before we get into it, here’s the synopsis for The Summer I Turned Pretty Season 2: “Belly used to count down the days until she could return to Cousins Beach, but with Conrad and Jeremiah fighting over her heart and the return of Susannah’s cancer, she’s not sure summer will ever be the same.

“When an unexpected visitor threatens the future of Susannah’s beloved house, Belly has to rally the gang to come together – and to decide once and for all where her heart lies.”

Belly: Lola Tung

Belly in The Summer I Turned Pretty

Lola Tung reprises her role as Belly, the lead character in The Summer I Turned Pretty. Belly is sweet and kind-hearted, but last season her emotions were all over the place as she tried to figure out who she wanted to be with: Conrad or Jeremiah? But the summer took an even more devastating turn when their family holiday was halted by the news that Susannah had cancer. 

While much of Season 1 saw Belly going through the coming-of-age experience, in the present-day she’s got a lot more on her plate. Speaking to Harper’s Bazaar, Tung said: “I think [Belly] is really letting [her own feelings] take over at the beginning of the season, and I think it’s really beautiful to see her try to rekindle her friendships that were lost and fix a lot of the damage that’s been done. I think Susannah is a guiding light for her throughout the season.”

The Summer I Turned Pretty is Tung’s first major role, having tried out for the part while studying at Carnegie Mellon University. Little did she realize it would catapult her to fame. 

Conrad: Christopher Briney

Conrad in The Summer I Turned Pretty

Christopher Briney is back as Conrad, Susannah’s eldest son, Jeremiah’s brother, and someone who Belly has been pining for since their annual summer holidays together organized by their moms.

In Season 1, he had an air of mystery about him, and we found out about his strained relationship with his father. As time went on, it became clear that Belly’s feelings were reciprocated – only by this point, she was already in a situationship with Jeremiah. In the finale, the pair finally kiss, but does their relationship last in Season 2?

Briney’s other major role was in Dalíland, the biographical drama film based on the true story of surrealist painter Salvador Dalí.

Jeremiah: Gavin Casalegno

Jeremiah in The Summer I Turned Pretty

Gavin Casalegno is back as Jeremiah, Susannah’s younger son and Conrad’s baby brother, one who is outgoing and loves to flirt and have fun. But he also has a more serious side, as demonstrated through his romance with Belly. 

It’s safe to say he’s going to be pretty hurt when he finds out about Conrad and Belly, especially as he’s also dealing with the heartbreaking revelation about his mom. 

Casalegno has appeared in a number of TV shows and movies over the years, including Walker, The Vampire Diaries, Nine Seconds, and The Unhealer.

Steven: Sean Kaufman

Sean Kaufman returns to The Summer I Turned Pretty cast as Steven, Belly’s older brother. While the pair clash, deep down they love each other and will back each other up when they need to. 

Although it was all fun and games in Season 1, the Season 2 trailer shows us that Steven harbors resentment towards Belly, blaming her for the rift between him and Conrad and Jerimiah. 

Kaufman has enjoyed minor roles in various TV shows including FBI: Most Wanted, Manifest, and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. 

Laurel: Jackie Chung

Chung has had minor roles in the TV series Deadbeat, Station 19, and Grey’s Anatomy.

Susannah: Rachel Blanchard
