Surviving Summer is an Australian teen drama Netflix series that follows a rebellious teen sent to live in the tiny fictional town of Shorehaven on the Great Ocean Road, Victoria, Australia. The first season of the show premiered on June 3, 2022, with 10 episodes.
The show was initially supposed to be roughly based on the hit 1998 film The Parent Trap to include two female cousins. But the story was later modified to include a boy in an attempt to be appealing to boys as well. The first season of the show was mostly well-received leaving some ardent viewers to wonder if the show will be back for another season. Here’s what we know so far:
Has Netflix renewed Surviving Summer for season 2?
Netflix has yet to determine the future of Surviving Summer as of the time of publishing following a couple weeks after its launch. We’re currently 50/50 on the future of the series. While the show has shown that it’s got legs from week 1 to week 2, Australian productions haven’t had the best luck historically in getting renewed.
On the production company’s website, they host a blog post that seems to hint at intentions of bringing back the show saying “The production team’s fingers are crossed that Shorehaven will charm viewers as it does Summer and that there will be a second season, ideally with suitable surf.”
What to expect from Surviving Summer season 2?
Should the series get renewed, events will no doubt continue from where they left off in episode 10.
As a quick reminder, here’s a rundown of what did happen in episode 10:
Season 2 would likely pick up with Summer in New York again (just the same as how season 1 did) with potentially a new challenge or reason to head to back to Australia to spend time with her newly acquired friends. Of course, we could see a reversal at play, could her friends join her in New York for season 2? Time will tell. Would you like to see Surviving Summer return for a Season 2 at Netflix?
