Despite the end of Jenny Han’s To All the Boys trilogy on Netflix, another of her books may soon receive a film adaptation. Variety claimed that Amazon is adapting the author’s YA novel The Summer I Turned Pretty into a TV series.
When will it be broadcast for the first time?
The eight-episode series has yet to be set for a release date. According to Han, “The Summer I Got Pretty has been in the works for many years, and I’m so excited to tell Belly’s story in 2021. For long-time book fans, I think it will have been worth the wait. For those new to the Summer series, I hope you fall in love with these characters and this place that is so close to my heart.
The summer I shot a long-awaited story
Even though Isabel “Belly” Conklin is engaged in a love triangle between two brothers in The Summer I Got Pretty, the story isn’t all about teenage love. Mother-daughter relationships and female friendships should also feature in the “multigenerational drama.” According to Deadline, “It’s a coming-of-age tale about first love, first heartbreak, and the enchantment of that perfect summer.”
In 2009, The Summer I Turned Pretty was first released as a hardcover book. First, it’s not summer without you, then we’ll always have summer, and now there are three books in the series.
The Summer I Became Pretty – Cast Members
The first cast members have been revealed by Amazon.
The belly is played by Lola Tung, a newcomer. According to Amazon, Belly used to be clumsy and clumsy, but now that she’s 16, “she’s starting to get attention and it takes some getting used to,” the site said in A press release. She gets used to the sudden attention she gets from her longtime crush, Conrad Fisher. Tung graduated from LaGuardia High School in New York and is currently a student at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh.
Belly’s mother, Laurel, is played by Jackie Chung (Coming Home, Grey’s Anatomy). According to Amazon, Chung’s character has an “aversion to technology” and “a sardonic sense of humor”. Laurel’s writing has been affected for the first time in her career since her divorce a year ago.
Susannah is played by You Me Her and Deep Water actress Rachel Blanchard. Every summer, she hosts Laurel and her family at the opulent beach property of her “warm, free-spirited” best friend. Belly’s crush, Conrad, is played by Christopher Briney (Dali Land). I know him to be a great student and a great athlete, but he suddenly becomes sullen and withdrawn this summer.
While Han wrote the pilot episode, her first TV writing credit, she’s also behind the scenes. With Gabrielle Stanton (Grey’s Anatomy, The Flash), she is executive producer and co-showrunner. According to Variety, EPs from other films include Karen Rosenfelt (Twilight), Paul Lee, Nne Ebong and Hope Hartman. Amazon and wiip, the production company behind Dickinson on AppleTV+ and Kate Winslet’s drama Mare of Easttown on HBO, are collaborating on the show.
