The Summer I Turned Pretty Season 3 Release Date

During Amazon’s upfront pitch to advertisers on May 14, the company revealed that season 3 of “The Summer I Turned Pretty” will air in summer 2025.

Prime Video announced that the show had been renewed until August 2023. To share the good news, author Jenny Han posted a TikTok video with actors Lola Tung, Sean Kaufman, Gavin Casalegno, and Christopher Briney. “Surprise! She wrote, “There will be another summer.” “We’ll be back for season 3 as soon as we’re able.”

Fans hoped that season 3 would arrive in summer 2024, following the pattern of the show’s first two seasons, which debuted one year apart in summer 2022 and summer 2023. However, the third season appears to have been postponed by a year.

To compensate for this, season 3 will include 11 episodes, one more than the previously planned 10, and more than season 1’s seven and season 2’s eight.

However, there is a silver lining: season 3 is now being filmed in North Carolina, where seasons 1 and 2 were shot. So, while you’ll have to wait a long time to find out what happens next, you can rest certain that fresh episodes are already in creation.

‘The Summer I Turned Pretty’ Season 3: Cast

‘The Summer I Turned Pretty’ S3 Plot and S2 Ending Explained

The third season of “The Summer I Turned Pretty” would most likely begin immediately following the game-changing conclusion, which saw Belly appear to fall in love with Jeremiah as a heartbroken Conrad stood by. Here’s how it went down:

Conrad’s interruption of Belly’s and Jeremiah’s kiss is as uncomfortable as it sounds. What happens next? Conrad’s rage is on full display during a brutally unpleasant car journey.

When a violent storm hits, the three are forced to spend the night in a hotel room. The three must deal with their strong emotions and tremendous stress while waiting out the storm. Conrad and Jeremiah choose to sleep on the floor, leaving Belly with the bed.

Conrad and Jeremiah have a sincere, tearful talk over the evening, and they decide that their love for Bailey won’t compromise their brotherhood. In an attempt to offer Jeremiah and Bailey a chance at happiness, Conrad presents himself as having moved on from Bailey.

Bailey chooses to officially declare her love for Jeremiah. Jeremiah is driving her to volleyball camp, and she is beaming, not realizing that Conrad is still deeply in love with Bailey and is in pain but not expressing it.

Regarding Season 3’s storyline, nothing is set in stone yet. However, we do have some thoughts about possible plot developments. This is a spoiler alert for anyone who hasn’t read the book trilogy.

Warning: Major Book Spoilers Ahead

So far, the series has mostly focused on the first two volumes of the trilogy, “The Summer I Turned Pretty” and “It’s Not Summer Without You.” Although there have been a few adjustments, we can reasonably anticipate that Season 3’s narrative will primarily follow the third and final novel, “We’ll Always Have Summer.”

If the tale doesn’t drastically deviate, we can expect a two-year time leap. Bailey and Jeremiah were previously in a good relationship, but when she discovered that Jeremiah had an affair during a gap in their relationship, she left. Jeremiah, desperate to make things right, proposes, and Bailey accepts despite their families’ misgivings.

The wedding preparations are finalized, and they will marry at Susanna’s beach cottage. There is only one catch: Conrad is staying there. When Bailey sees him again, her heart tells her that Conrad has always been her top priority.

Faced with this reality, Bailey and Jeremiah decide to end their engagement. After recuperating from her heart problem, Bailey relocates to Spain to study abroad. Meanwhile, Conrad begins to write her loving letters. Love blooms between them again, and as the tale concludes, they say “I do” in the middle of the storm before plunging into the water, tuxedo and wedding dress included.

If “The Summer I Turned Pretty” Season 3 takes this route, there will undoubtedly be many shattered hearts and damaged sentiments. The love triangle is unresolved.
