“The Summer I Turned Pretty” TV Series: Release Date, Trailer, and Everything We Know So Far

The Summer I Turned Pretty book trilogy follows the coming-of-age of 16-year-old Isabel “Belly” Conklin as she spends summers in the fictional beach town of Cousin’s Beach with her mother, older brother and her mother’s childhood best friend and her sons — two brothers who Belly gets wrapped up in a love triangle with.

According to Deadline, the official synopsis for The Summer I Turned Pretty series reads as follows: “[TSITP] is a multigenerational drama that hinges on a love triangle between one girl and two brothers, the ever-evolving relationship between mothers and their children, and the enduring power of strong female friendship. It is a coming-of-age story about first love, first heartbreak, and the magic of that one perfect summer.”

Author Jenny Han wrote the pilot for the series, and will serve as TSITP‘s co-showrunner with Gabrielle Stanton, who is known for her work on CW’s The Flash.

You’ll be able to stream The Summer I Turned Pretty‘s eight episodes on Amazon Prime Video. There hasn’t been any confirmation yet whether Prime Video will continue the series to also adapt and include TSITP‘s sequels, It’s Not Summer Without You and We’ll Always Have Summer. It’s important to note, though, that Jenny Han recently signed a TV and film deal with Amazon Studios.

 “Adapting my novel, The Summer I Turned Pretty, into a television series at Prime Video has been an incredible experience, and I’m so thrilled to now expand my relationship with them,” Han said, per Deadline. “I’ve been telling stories for as long as I can remember, first on the page, then onscreen, and now I’m delighted to start this new chapter: creating and championing stories about coming of age at every age for Prime Video’s global audience.”
