The Summer I Turned Pretty season 3: will the show return, will the writers strike affect it and plot details

The highly anticapted second season of The Summer I Turned Pretty is finally here - but will there be a seaon three?

Belly and the gang have finally returned to transport us back to Cousins Beach much to the delight of fans. That’s right, The Summer I Turned Pretty is back with new episodes on Prime Video with a heartbreaking love triangle and more Taylor Swift songs along with it.

The series has everything fans loved about its predecessor, and more. While the show will be released in weekly installments, viewers have already binged the first three hours after they dropped and are already asking whether a third season is on the horizon.

The series, which is an adaptation of the Jenny Han novel of the same name, stole fans’ hearts last summer. Those who read the books before the show know that it is based on Han’s three-part novel series that follows Belly Conklin as she navigates a love triangle between brothers, so a third season would make sense. Particularly since they are closely following the second book’s plot in this series.

The show has yet to be renewed for a third season, but during an appearance on CBS Mornings Jenny Han discussed the possibility of a third season while promoting the new episodes. When asked when the show would return the creator said: “I hope so”.

So, will there be a third season of The Summer I Turned Pretty? Here’s everything you need to know so far.

Han said: "We can’t until the writers strike is over," she continued. "I hope that the studios will come back to the table and negotiate and we can get back to work. I think everyone wants to go back to work, including me.”

What will The Summer I Turned Pretty season three be about?

If the third series were to follow the book then fans will know just how drama filled a third series of the show could be. The third book is the final instalment in the Jenny Han book series, and sees Belly finally pick between Jeremiah or Conrad.
