There is no official release date for season 2 yet. The series will be available to watch on Amazon Prime, similar to its previous season, in the US. People with cable or outside the US can watch the series on channel Freeform or stream it on Hulu. Watchers can also watch the live stream on the Freeform website for free!
However, the Executive producer Jessica Biel had confirmed that the second season of Cruel Summer would return with new episodes in 2022. Amazon Video premiered the previous season in April 2021. We can expect the forthcoming series to come out following the show makers’ tradition of releasing in late spring or early summer this year.
Cruel Summer Season 2 Cast
Cruel Summer season 2 is expected to have the same cast come back for the new season.
The crime-thriller is expected to have characters such as,
- Olivia Holt playing Kate Wallis
- Chiara Aurelia playing Jeanette Turner
- Froy Gutierrez playing Jamie Henson
- Harley Quinn Smith. playing Mallory Higgins
- Brooklyn Sudano playing Angela Prescott
- Allius Barnes playing Vince Fuller

- Michael Landes playing Greg Turner
- Sarah Drew playing Cindy- Jeanette’s mother
- Barrett Carnahan playing Derek- Jeanette’s older brother
- Andrea Anders playing Joy Wallis-Kate’s mother
- Nicole Bilderback playing Jeanette’s lawyer
As fans saw Martin Harris die in the first episode, who constantly reappeared in flashbacks, concerning Kate’s trauma, she might see her abuse/kidnapper in several flashbacks this season as well. Blake Lee or Martin Harris is also the only member whose casting is a mystery.
Although there is no conformity until the makers announce themselves, we can assume these actors to be seen in the upcoming series.
Cruel Summer Season 2 Plot
At the exhilarating end of Cruel Summer’s first season, both Jeanette and Kate realise that the person they had spotted her in Martin’s window was Mallory and not Jeanette. We see Kate accusing her of seeing that she was being kidnapped and did not do much to alert the authorities. Mallory later confessed that she spotted a blonde woman in Martin’s window but didn’t realise it was Kate.
While Kate came to know that Jeanette wasn’t lying about not seeing Kate while she was being held incarcerated, watchers get to know that at the end of the episode, Jeanette indeed heard Kate begging for help when she broke into Martin’s house in 1994.
In Cruel Summer season 2, we might get to know whether Jeanette and Kate have buried their little secret. We might also get to see the somewhat budding relationship between Kate and her best friend Mallory, with whom she shared a kiss in the season finale! Was it because of the heat of the moment, or did it mark the beginning of a new love angle? We might get to know each other this time! Once, the makers had mentioned that they would love to feature a new story with the same cast in an anthology form.
The new season will resume from where things were left at the finale. The consequence of that twist will bring much more depth to the story. Fans will also get to know whether Jeanette is mentally ill or not. Or does the remorse of leaving Kate to stay trapped in her kidnapper’s basement affect her? Does Kate know? What is the future of Kate’s relationship with Mallory?
Fans have these and some more questions, and the release of Cruel Summer season 2 will answer these all!
