Is Cruel Summer Season 2 Releasing In May 2023?


It’s been over 2 years since Cruel Summer Season 1 was released and that is too long a period without this underrated gem. The 1st season of the Freeform drama was a rollercoaster ride with many twists and turns that got us into the lives of 2 unreliable narrators. Cruel Summer is back for a 2nd season and while the forthcoming season will have an entirely new cast, we can anticipate some of the same gripping storyline.

Here’s everything you need to know about Cruel Summer Season 2.

Cruel Summer Season 2 Potential Release Date

We don’t have much longer till we return to the land of Cruel Summer! This spring, it was announced that the 2nd season would premiere on Freeform on June 5, 2023, featuring two brand-new episodes! Following that, one new episode will be released each week.

Cruel Summer Season 2 Expected Cast

As of now, season one actors such as Harley Quinn Smith, Froy Gutierrez, Chiara Aurelia, and Olivia Holt are not likely to return. The wonderful part is that we now have a whole new group to get to know and love to hate.
