Prime Video’s The Summer I Turned Pretty has added two more to its cast. Per The Hollywood Reporter, Kyra Sedgwick (The Closer) and Elsie Fisher (Barry) have signed on for Season 2. While details regarding their roles are being kept under wraps, the outlet was able to confirm the duo will be recurring guests in the upcoming season.
The Summer I Turned Pretty is based on the book series of the same name by Jenny Han. It follows Isabel “Belly” Conklin, played by Lola Tung, as she finds herself in a love triangle with two brothers (Christopher Briney and Gavin Casalegno). While the love triangle is a big part of the series, it also focuses on relationships between mothers and their children, as well as the lasting power of friendships, especially among females. The book series is made up of three titles: The Summer I Turned Pretty, It’s Not Summer Without You, and We’ll Always Have Summer.
Sedgwick and Fisher join a cast that includes Tung, Briney, and Casalegno, as well as Jackie Chung, Rachel Blanchard, Sean Kaufman, Alfredo Narciso, Minnie Mills, Colin Ferguson and Tom Everett Scott.
Han, of course, is the author behind the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before books which were successfully adapted by Netflix. The streamer has even recently ordered a spinoff series, titled XO, Kitty. Han will serve as a co-creator of the Netflix series alongside Sascha Rothchild. She’ll also be serving as a co-showrunner on The Summer I Turned Pretty Season 2 alongside Sarah Kucserka.
