The cast of The Summer I Turned Pretty season 2 is led by Lola Tung as Isabel "Belly" Conklin, the show's half-Korean, half-white teen protagonist.

The Summer I Turned Pretty season 2 soundtrack: Taylor Swift songs
As noted above, a slow and dreamy remix of Taylor Swift's "August" off her Folklore album is featured in the The Summer I Turned Pretty season 2 trailer. It's followed by "Back to December (Taylor’s Version)" off her recently released rerecording Speak Now (Taylor's Version).
Jenny Han is an unabashed Swiftie. In the first season, the show incorporated five of Swift's songs And on TikTok, Han revealed that season 2 will play nine more! (Not counting the two in the trailer.)
With Speak Now (Taylor's Version) charting right now, we wouldn't be surprised to hear more songs off that album The Summer I Turned Pretty season 2. "Sparks Fly," "The Story of Us" and "Last Kiss" all seem like prime candidates.
