Summer is all about getting one’s cover story straight in a newly released trailer for Season 2 of the Freeform anthology series Cruel Summer, premiering Monday, June 5 at 9/8c with two back-to-back episodes, before moving to its regular 10 pm timeslot the following week.
The upcoming installment of the psychological drama features a fresh mystery and an all-new cast, led by Sadie Stanley (The Goldbergs), Lexi Underwood (Little Fires Everywhere) and Griffin Gluck (Locke & Key, Private Practice).
Season 2 is set in an idyllic waterfront town in the Pacific Northwest and follows “the rise and fall of an intense teenage friendship,” per the official synopsis. “Approaching the story from three different timelines surrounding Y2K, the season twists and turns as it tracks the early friendship between Megan (played by Stanley), Isabella (Underwood) and Megan’s best friend Luke (Gluck), the love triangle that blossomed, and the mystery that would impact all of their lives going forward.”
KaDee Strickland (Private Practice), Lisa Yamada (Little Fires Everywhere) and Sean Blakemore (General Hospital, Greenleaf) round out the ensemble. Paul Adelstein (Private Practice) also recurs, reuniting him with Strickland and Gluck, who played his wife and son on Private Practice.

Looks good! I recognize Sadie Stanley from The Goldbergs so it’ll be nice to see what she can do with a bigger role. I watched the first season of Cruel Summer and really enjoyed it. This trailer has the same vibes as the first season so I’m excited to see the new storyline and new cast.
Charlote and Coop on the same show? Cool.
This season will never capture viewers’ imaginations the same way the OG cast and storylines did. Appears boring to me but YMMV.
Thanks for your sharing! What news?
so not one but two gorgeous ladies fall for the guy who looks like he writes all the papers for the football team?? lol yeah ok
Plus if this is just like last year it will likely jump around as it took me about 6 episodes in to realize it was non-linear although I still don’t know what the point of them having that tease at the end that janette knew she was in the house when you’d have to be dumb not to think she didn’t as she had been sneaking in and that likely wasn’t the first time she was down there
not sure I’m buying the guy as the one who’s able to snag both of these girls attention but whatever. Also, having been a teen in 1999, pretty sure “Ride or Die” wasn’t a term we used then…
