Cruel Summer is undoubtedly unkind to the majority of its protagonists, but the fact that a second season has already been confirmed before the first has even ended is making it seem very sweet to us.
Since Cruel Summer has become Freeform’s highest-rated series ever, network president Tara Duncan told TVLine in June 2021 that renewing the show was an “easy choice.”
But there will be shifts, and not just because Bert V. Royal, the show’s creator, has stepped away. Season two and the potential future of this show are still shrouded in uncertainty.
Yet, we’re here to simplify things for you. So, hang up the phone with mom and turn on the modem, because we’re going to call into all the details you need to know about season two of Cruel Summer.

Cruel Summer season 2 Release date
Sadly, as of May 31, 2022, there has been no announcement on the release date of the Cruel Summer season 2.
New episodes of Cruel Summer, starring Jessica Biel (yes, that Jessica Biel), will premiere in 2022, a year later than originally planned. Season one premiered in April.
They didn’t even begin filming until that month (more on that later), so we’re looking at the end of the year as a stretch at best.
To be perfectly honest, when the program will return is anyone’s guess.
Listen in, and we’ll fill you in on the latest developments.
Cruel Summer season 2 cast
As a result, Cruel Summer is undergoing a major redesign, so get used to the idea. This means starting from scratch with a whole new narrative, cast, and creator.
The new season’s cast will be:
• Sadie Stanley (The Goldbergs) as Megan
• newcomer Eloise Payet as Isabella
• Griffin Gluck (Locke & Key) as Luke
• KaDee Strickland (Private Practice)
• Lisa Yamada (All American)
• Sean Blakemore (Greenleaf)
• Paul Adelstein (True Story)
What will Cruel Summer Season 2 be about?
This is when things start to get tricky. Jeanette snuck into Martin Harris’ house on another time she never revealed, and while she didn’t see Kate, she heard her crying for assistance from the basement, setting up a big cliffhanger at the end of Season 1. It begged the question of how far Jeannette’s status-obsessed sociopathy extends. Except that we won’t be touching on any of it in Season 2.
In June of 2021, Deadline announced that the program has been revived with the possibility of becoming an anthology. They said that Freeform president Tara Duncan was eager to hear the showrunners’ ideas for the second season, but “agreed that it might have a fresh plot with the same ensemble or, in anthology form, employ the technique of two points of view using several timelines with a new group.” Given the success of anthology formats like True Detective, Fargo, and The Sinner in the mystery genre in recent years, it seemed plausible that the program might use this approach.
After months of silence, in April 2022, The Hollywood Reporter published an update that said the program was transitioning into an anthology format. Despite the fact that the tale is all-new, the program still hopes to utilize some components from the previous season that made it so compelling. According to THR, viewers can expect another drama on the complexities of adolescent friendships, set in the past and presented from several perspectives.
The program is rumored to be centered on the year 2000, which is great news for the fashion-forward members of Generation Z. (and, presumably, the Y2K scare). “the rise and demise of a strong adolescent connection” are claimed to take place in “an exquisite coastal village in the Pacific Northwest.” According to The Hollywood Reporter, “the season will twist and turn as it follows the early relationship between Megan, Isabella, and Megan’s closest friend Luke, the love triangle that evolved, and the mystery that would affect all of their lives moving forward.” Few specifics have been revealed about this mystery, but judging by the tone of the first season, we may be in for another scandalous adventure.
Cruel Summer season 2 trailer
Cruel Summer fans will have to wait just as long as Kate did to get her dial-up connection to work, and they will have to wait even longer for new footage to arrive. We don’t expect to see a season two trailer until early 2022 at the earliest, and that’s if we’re being optimistic about it.
