One of Jenny Han's most popular young adult novels, The Summer I Turned Pretty, is making its way to the big screen just in time for the summer.
First published in 2009, The Summer I Turned Pretty has since been optioned for a television series, according to reports. It wasn't until February 2021 when Amazon ordered a series order that the TV series could begin production.
There has been a lot of hard work put into The Summer I Turned Pretty, author Jenny Han said when the show was revealed in 2021. The wait will have been well worth it, in my opinion. I hope you fall in love with these characters and this area that is so close to my heart as you read the Summer series.”
In 2018, Netflix released an adaptation of Jenny Han's To All the Boys trilogy, which includes the YA novels To All the Boys I've Loved Before, P.S. I Still Love You, and Always and Forever, Lara Jean. Kitty Covey's younger sister Lara Jean will be the center of an upcoming TATB spin-off, titled “XO, Kitty.”

Summer I Turned Pretty: Plot
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.
TSP is an intergenerational drama that revolves around a love triangle between one girl and two brothers, the ever-changing bond between moms and their offspring, and the lasting force of strong female friendship,” Deadline reports. First love, first heartbreak, and the beauty of one perfect summer all come together in this coming-of-age tale.
Co-showrunner Gabrielle Stanton, well known for her work on CW's The Flash, penned the pilot for TSITP and will serve as its co-showrunner.

Lola Tung, a newbie to the industry, has been cast as Belly Conklin, the 16-year-old protagonist of The Summer I Turned Pretty. They will play Conrad and Jeremiah Fisher in this show's love triangle: actors Christopher Briney and Gavin Casalegno.
During this tragic summer, Belly's “loved forever” Fisher brother, Conrad, and Jeremiah's affections for each other gradually emerge.
Conrad and Jeremiah Fisher's mother Susannah Fisher (Rachel Blanchard) is played by Manifest star Sean Kaufman. Jackie Chung portrays Belly's mother Laurel. Minnie Mills, Summer Madison, David Iacono, Rain Spencer, and Tom Everett Scott all appear in the film as supporting actors.
Summer I Turned Pretty: Release date
Amazon Prime customers will be able to watch all eight episodes of The Summer I Turned Pretty. There hasn't been any indication yet whether Prime Video would continue the series to include adapt and incorporate TSITP's sequels, It's Not Summer Without You and We'll Always Have Summer. A recent TV and film agreement with Amazon Studios was inked by Jenny Han, though.
“Adapting my novel, The Summer I Turned Pretty, into a television series at Prime Video has been a fantastic experience, and I’m so delighted to now expand my partnership with them,” Han said, via Deadline. First on the page, then on film, and now for Prime Video's worldwide audience, I'm thrilled to begin a new chapter: producing and championing tales about coming of age at every age.

Han's connection with Prime Video may imply that TSITP will be fully adapted and that more of her works will be adapted for the screen. We'll have to see what happens, I guess!
Summer I Turned Pretty: Trailer
On May 5, The Summer I Turned Pretty's first teaser video was published, with none other than Taylor Swift's endorsement and a special gift.
While the trailer's soundtrack featured only a brief excerpt of the 1989 music, the complete re-recorded version was released on May 6.
The announcement of Taylor Swift's collaboration with Jenny Han elicited excitement among Swift fans, who wondered if this meant 1989 (Taylor's Version) will be the next re-recorded album.
