As The Summer I Turned Pretty gears up for another exciting season at Cousins Beach, it’s time to refresh your memory on the captivating events of Season 1. With over a year since the finale, it’s essential to recall the must-remember details before diving into the latest chapter on Prime Video. Created by Jenny Han, who also authored the series, The Summer I Turned Pretty follows the story of Belly Conklin (portrayed by Lola Tung), a teenage girl spending her summers at Cousins Beach, a fictional New England-based coastal town. She stays at the beach house of her mother Laurel’s (played by Jackie Chung) best friend, Susannah (played by Rachel Blanchard).

In Season 1, we witnessed Belly’s coming-of-age journey as she navigated new relationships and participated in a local debutante presentation. Alongside her were her older brother Steven (Sean Kaufman) and Susannah’s two sons, Conrad (Christopher Briney) and Jeremiah (Gavin Casalegno). Throughout the season, Belly’s long-time crush on Conrad created tension between the characters, as Conrad remained closed off and distant. Unbeknownst to the others, Susannah harbored a secret recurrence of cancer, which she had been keeping to herself. Only Conrad was aware of her condition.

As Belly felt rejected by Conrad, she found solace in Jeremiah’s attention and shared several romantic moments with him towards the end of the season. However, during the debutante ball in the Season 1 finale, Jeremiah discovered his mother’s illness when he saw a message on her phone. Overwhelmed by the situation, Belly searched for Jeremiah during a choreographed dance but couldn’t find him as he had gone outside. Seizing the moment, Conrad stepped in and danced with Belly, metaphorically saving the day.

After the dance, Jeremiah informed Conrad about Susannah’s sickness, leading to a confrontation between the two brothers. Susannah, upset by their fight, confronted her sons and revealed her diagnosis. This revelation also shattered Belly, who deeply cared for Susannah. Determined to help Susannah, Conrad finally let go of his emotional baggage and confessed his feelings for Belly, culminating in a heartfelt kiss.

So, what lies ahead for our beloved characters? Susannah had decided to pursue treatment, while Belly and Conrad seemed to have committed to each other. Meanwhile, Jeremiah remained unaware of the kiss between Belly and his brother. To uncover the next chapter of their intertwined lives, don’t miss Season 2 of The Summer I Turned Pretty, airing on Prime Video.
