Amazon Prime’s The Summer I Turned Pretty will return for its highly anticipated second season in a matter of days. The series, which is an adaptation of the Jenny Han novel of the same name, stole fans’ hearts last summer.

The second series of the show got an early green light when it was confirmed before the first series had even dropped on Amazon Prime. Since then fans have been impatiently awaiting the moment we return to Cousins beach.

The first season was well executed and with a hopeful ending, but that doesn’t mean fans weren’t left with a million unanswered questions. Aside from the main questions surrounding who Belly picks (Team Jeremiah and Team Conrad are desperately awaiting the answers), many fans will be wondering the fate of one part of the best duo in the show, Susannah.

The first season focuses on granting Susannah’s wish of one more perfect summer in Cousins before having to tell her family that her cancer has returned. Laurel, her best friend, supports but is hopeful she will change her mind about not going through treatment again. The season ends with the devastating news being revealed, but Conrad and Jeremiah are able to convince her to try cancer treatment again. Leaving fans, particularly those who haven’t read the book, and Laurel hopeful.

So, does Susannah die in The Summer I Turned Pretty? Here’s everything you need to know. Fair warning, there are big spoilers ahead for the second book.

Fans were hopeful that we may get more time with Susannah in the show as she agrees to do treatment at the end of season one. However, the show has dashed hopes of this since they dropped the full trailer. It looks as though it will closely follow the book’s storyline and we will see Belly and the gang deal with Susannah’s passing. Rachel Blanchard does feature in the trailer as Susannah but these will no doubt be flashbacks.

Who does Belly end up with in The Summer I Turned Pretty?

After choosing Jeremiah at the end of book two, the final book in the series begins two years later where the couple are still together and have even gone to college together. However, team Jeremiah stans may want to hold off on the celebration just yet. The couple get engaged and after a messy ride to the altar, the pair break up. Belly ends up with Conrad a few years later. The series ends with Conrad and Belly getting married.
