Cruel Summer Season 2 is an upcoming American anthology TV series created by Bert V. Royal. Nicole Colombie is the producer of the show. Iron Ocean Productions and Entertainment One are the production companies working on the show. Initially, the show was given the title “Last Summer” but was retitled “Cruel Summer.”
Cruel Summer is a blend of teen drama and thriller showcasing the same day in different years and characters in each episode. The first few episodes of this intriguing mystery series feel a little choppy. Still, once you get used to the notion that it tells the narrative in segments of three separate summers—’93, ’94, and ’95—the approach works brilliantly. Cruel Summer develops like a beach read, revealing absurd story turns roughly every 15 minutes.
