Variety reports Amazon has ordered an eight-episode series based on Han’s novel, The Summer I Turned Pretty. That book spanned two sequels, It’s Not Summer Without You and We’ll Always Have Summer, though it’s unclear if they’ll receive the TV treatment too. Amazon will probably wait to see the success of The Summer I Turned Pretty before making any decisions. But if To All the Boys is any indication, there will probably be a lot of summer in our future.
Here is the Good Reads synopsis of The Summer I Turned Pretty:
“Belly measures her life in summers. Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August. Winters are simply a time to count the weeks until the next summer, a place away from the beach house, away from Susannah, and most importantly, away from Jeremiah and Conrad. They are the boys that Belly has known since her very first summer—they have been her brother figures, her crushes, and everything in between. But one summer, one terrible and wonderful summer, the more everything changes, the more it all ends up just the way it should have been all along.”
Sounds like perfect, dramatic escapism—so when can we expect the show? Unclear, but since the order was announced in February, things are probably in early stages. Thankfully, we have the To All the Boys Netflix movies to watch while we wait. The third and final film, To All the Boys: Always and Forever, hits the steaming platform on February 12.
“I’ve been really struggling how to put into words my feelings towards this ending…words will never be able to describe my love for Lara Jean,” Lana Condor (Lara Jean) wrote on Instagram. “Her family, her friends, Peter. Words will never be able to describe the long nights on set, where it would suddenly hit me, like a ton of bricks, that I was getting the honor of portraying a girl so fiercely determined in love, who represents strength in softness. Words will never be able to describe my gratitude to YOU, for loving her as much as I do.”
