We enjoyed watching Harsh Summer live up to his name by being cruel to all of his characters. Prepare now to return to a world of nostalgia, melancholy and intrigue, as… cruel summer has been renewed for a second season and returns to Freeform. After its premiere in the summer of 2021, the show was an instant success for the network. In the 1990s, this Freeform phenomenon quickly started gaining fans with its insanely bizarre puzzles.
We were taken to a place where we were left with frenzied speculation and re-guessing when the first season dropped over a year ago, but now that we know the second season is coming soon, we couldn’t be happier.
For starters, however, we have some potentially unpleasant news for fans. The fans who fell in love with the actors and plot of the first season will not see anything in the second season. The next season will feature an all-new plot, character cast, setting, and timeline. Despite the fact that not all details about the second season have been published yet, we still have some information to share with you.
Here’s everything we know so far about Cruel Summer’s second season.
Cruel Summer Season 2 Release Date:
Jessica Biel, the show’s executive producer, stated last year that additional episodes of Cruel Summer will air in 2022. However, no formal statement has been made for any particular day. Therefore, we can anticipate the release of the next season quite quickly.
The show will return in 2022, although no definitive date has been announced yet. If we’re willing to bet, the final project will be completed by late summer.
Until recently, you can watch the first season of Cruel Summer on Hulu of Candy, Jessica Biel’s upcoming true-crime thriller, when it premieres on Hulu on May 9.
