Amazon’s Prime Video released the first look images of The Summer I Turned Pretty, an upcoming series that adapts Jenny Han’s series of novels of the same name. The show is a coming-of-age story about a girl who falls in love with two brothers, getting herself trapped in the middle of an awkward love triangle.
The first look images focused on the upcoming series’ main cast, with Lola Tung taking the role of Isabel “Belly” Conklin, a girl who has to deal with the pains of growing up while she develops a romantic relationship with two boys at the same time. The other two corners of the love triangle are formed by Christopher Briney as Conrad “Connie” Fisher and Gavin Casalegno as Jeremiah “Jere” Fisher, two brothers who’ll fight for the love of Belly. The first look images tease the romance between the three teens, as Belly and each of the brothers find themselves alone on a pool, a beach, or riding a bike.
The Summer I Turned Pretty is the second series created by Han and based on her literary work. The author also worked with Netflix to develop the three films inspired by her To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before novels and is currently working on a spinoff set in the same universe called XO Kitty. The Summer I Turned Pretty should adapt the first book of a trilogy written by Han, and if the series proves successful, Prime Video could renew the show for multiple seasons, allowing Han to adapt her work entirely.
The Summer I Turned Pretty also stars Jackie Chung, Rachel Blanchard, Gavin Casalegno, Sean Kaufman, Alfredo Narciso, and Minnie Mills, with Colin Ferguson and Tom Everett Scott. Original author Han serves as the series showrunner, together with Gabrielle Stanton. Han also wrote the series pilot and serves as executive producer alongside Stanton, Karen Rosenfelt, and Hope Hartman, Mads Hansen, and Nne Ebong for wiip. The series is a co-production of Amazon Studios and wiip.
