Get ready to head back to Cousins beach - we’ve finally got a The Summer I Turned Pretty season 2 official trailer...and first look at Taylor Swift’s Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)

The Summer I Turned Pretty fans rejoice as the show has finally revealed an official trailer and our hearts are already breaking. That’s right, pack your bags for another summery adventure to Cousins beach with Belly and the gang.

The show then gave fans its first look at the series with a short teaser trailer featuring all our favourite characters, and big hints at what is to come for Belly, Jeremiah and Conrad. Since then, fans have been begging for a full trailer, and our wishes have finally been answered.

The trailer not only answers our suspicions that this next serious is about to rip our hearts into a thousands pieces as we watch the cousins crew deal with the death of Susannah, but it also confirmed that it would once again feature exclusive Taylor’s Versions songs from Taylor Swift.

Much like the first series it seems that the second will also feature the music of the one and only Taylor Swift. Swift famously dropped two Taylor’s Version songs from her fifth album 1989 specifically for the show, and the show featured other hits such as ‘Cruel Summer’ and ‘Lover’.

The teaser trailer for the second season featured a dramatic version of ‘august’ from Swift’s surprise 2020 album ‘folklore’, and ahead of that Taylor Nation tweeted: “SO ready!!!” alongside a purple heart in response to the teaser trailer announcement.

Eagle eyed swifties knew All Too Well the purple is associated with her upcoming rerelease, not to mention the three exclamation points (Speak Now was her third album), all but confirming we’d get some Taylor’s Version songs along with the new series. Now, the official trailer featured an exclusive first listen to Back To December (Taylor’s Version) from her upcoming Speak Now (Taylor’s Version). The album is set to release on July 7, a week before the second season of the show drops.
