The new episodes will premiere later this year, according to Freeform. Sadie Stanley of The Goldbergs, Griffin Gluck of Lock & Key, and Eloise Payet, a newbie, will star.
In the second chapter, which takes place in a gorgeous seaside community in the Pacific Northwest, we learn of the rise and fall of a close adolescent friendship. A love triangle forms between Megan, her best friend Luke, and Megan’s coworker Isabella in the early episodes of the season, and a mystery that will have repercussions for all three characters develops. The stars include Sadie Stanley, Eloise Payet, Griffin Gluck, KaDee Strickland, Lisa Yamada, and Sean Blakemore. Once again, we’re introduced to Paul Adelstein.
Cruel Summer Second Season Will Include A Fresh Cast And A Mystery!!!
The show’s creators are eOne. Exec producers include Iron Ocean Productions’ Michelle Purple, Jessica Biel, Bill Purple, and Triedman. The first season’s headliners were Kate Wallis, a popular high school student who goes missing one day, and Jeanette Turner, a bookish aspirant who is suspected of being complicit in Kate’s kidnapping.
On the ABC show Private Practice, Paul Adelstein and KaDee Strickland, who played Gluck’s father and stepmother, will reprise their roles. The show is set to include Lisa Yamada and Sean Blakemore.
Cruel Summer second season will focus on “the rise and demise of an intense teenage connection,” according to a network news release.
Megan and Isabella’s early relationship, as well as Isabella and Luke’s love triangle, and the mystery that would affect all of their lives in the future, are all explored in this season’s logline.
When Megan Landry’s “long-held dreams are wrecked” due to “tragic circumstances,” Stanley portrays the honor student and computer programmer, according to the statement.
Hero Isabella is an exchange student who lives with the Landry family for a year as the daughter of foreign diplomats, whom Payet describes as “alluring and intriguing”. This small community is shaken by her, but “her charm can’t mask the truth about her background or the actual reason she chose to live with the Landrys permanently,” as she puts it.
A longtime best friend of Megan’s, Luke Chambers, “finds himself at a crossroads,” struggling to “create his own position in the world, separate from his strong father’s expectations.”
After Tia Napolitano’s departure, Elle Triedman, who worked on Freeform’s Siren and Guilt, will take over as showrunner. Bert V. Royal’s eOne series will also be produced by Triedman, Napolitano, Purple, Jessica Biel, and Michelle Purple as well.
Cruel Summer’s first season featured Olivia Holt and Chiara Aurelia as well as Michael Landes and Froy Gutierrez as well as Harley Quinn Smith as well as Allius Barnes as well as Blake Lee and Brooklyn Sudano.
Popular Texas high school girl Kate Wallis (Holt) mysteriously vanished, and Jeanette Turner (Aurelia) stepped in to fill in for her. Immediately upon Kate’s return from kidnapping in 1993/94/95, there was a lot of commotion.
