Prime Video’s coming-of-age romantic drama series is loaded with talent as The Summer I Turned Pretty cast is great from top to bottom. Based on the novel of the same name by Jenny Han, features a diverse ensemble cast with some familiar faces. The Summer I Turned Pretty (whose books were published before Han’s To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy) focuses on Isabel “Belly” Conklin, a girl who goes on an annual summer vacation to visit old family friends, the Fishers, at their beach house in Cousins Beach, Massachusetts. However, this summer is different—Belly is turning sixteen and finds herself caught in a love triangle between two brothers, Conrad and Jeremiah.
