Although the first season of The summer I became beautiful was only just released, it has already been renewed for another season of Amazon Prime. It is based on a book of the same name by Jenny Han, known as the author of To all the boys I’ve loved before. She also wrote the first episode and served as co-showrunner. The new series follows teenage girl Isabel “Belly” Conklin, played by newcomer Lola Tung in what may be the last summer at the beach her family visits each year.
The show hangs on a riveting love triangle. Belly has long been in love with her childhood friend Conrad, played by Christopher Briney, and it seems that he may finally notice her. But then his younger brother Jeremiah, played by Gavin Casalegno, also starts looking for a romance with Belly. She’s not sure who to choose, and there are two more books in the series for future seasons to explore the issue with.
There is also growth and drama in their family dynamics, but the core of the story is love on the beach. This is where they got that vibe to come alive.
Where is The summer I became beautiful set?
The two families vacation every year on Cousins Beach, and unfortunately it turns out that the beach does not actually exist. He told Amazon Prime video that she “had a lot of beaches in [her] head while forming Belly’s story, but that’s part of the charm of the fictional spot.
“I think that’s part of the reason why people can read the book and feel like it [Cousins Beach] is their beach, ”she said. In another interview with Today she dropped some more specific names and shouted Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, Hamptons and Nags Head out.
Where was The summer I became beautiful filmed?
Nags Head is in North Carolina, and this is where the show was eventually filmed. But they were in the city of Wilmington, North Carolina, according to IMDb. If you want to get as close to the “real thing” as you can, this is the city you need to see – but they can just record the new season there.
