Adapted from the Jenny Han’s novel series of the same name, there series tells the story of a love triangle between Isabel “Belly” Conklin (Lola Tung) and brothers Jeremiah (Gavin Casalegno) and Conrad (Christopher Briney).
In addition to the unfolding romance, season two also sees the trio battle to save the Cousins house after its future is threatened by a devastating development.
A synopsis for the second season reads: “Belly used to count down the days until she could return to Cousins Beach, but with Conrad and Jeremiah fighting over her heart and the return of Susannah’s cancer, she’s not sure summer will ever be the same. When an unexpected visitor threatens the future of Susannah’s beloved house, Belly has to rally the gang to come together—and to decide once and for all where her heart lies.”
Like the first season, the soundtrack contains a number of popular hits, with songs from Taylor Swift, Dua Lipa, One Direction, Olivia Rodrigo, Angel Olsen and many more popping up over the course of the eight episodes. You can find the full list of songs below.
Discussing Belly’s arc across the two seasons, star Lola Tung told Town & Country: “She’s in a very different place than she was at the end of season 1. A lot has happened. It’s been a year, and she is really weighed down by her grief. It’s this overwhelming, all consuming feeling that has affected every aspect of her life and all of her relationships.
“And on top of that too, grief aside, she already had sort of strained relationships with Conrad and Jeremiah. So she’s just feeling this overwhelming sadness and feeling really alone in it.”
She added: “A lot of her arc throughout the season is just trying to figure out how to move forward while dealing with grief and how to repair her friendships, relationships, and connections. And learning how to be the one to initiate those things without sort of the help of her parents, necessarily.”
All eight episodes of the second season are now available to stream on Amazon Prime Video.
