Cruel Summer season 2 has finally premiered on Freeform — and we’re already in love with the brand-new cast! So, are any of the actors dating one another IRL? Keep reading to see details on their love lives.

Season 2 of the popular Freeform show will follow three characters in a love triangle throughout three different timelines surrounding Y2K. Telling the story of the early friendship between Megan (Sadie Stanley), Isabella (Lexi Underwood) and Megan’s best friend Luke (Griffin Gluck).

Lisa Yamada, who plays Parker, explained to J-14 in an interview from May 2023, that since there are so many couples this season, the cast is super excited to see all the “the couple ship edits” on TikTok!

“Like, I’m just giggling because, like, we’re so friendly with each other and it’s gonna be so interesting to see fans shipping us together. But yeah, we’re really excited for that. We’re, like, sending each other TikTok’s like, ‘Oh my God, this is so funny.'”

ICYMI, season 1 of Cruel Summer premiered in April 2021, and told the story of missing girl Kate Wallis (played by Olivia Holt) in the span of three summers in the ’90s. Viewers were hooked from the start of episode 1, cementing Cruel Summer as one of Freeform’s most successful series of all time.

She also said that having season 1 as a guide was a blessing in one sense.

“I feel like we got really lucky because season 1 was sort of like our bible in a sense,” she revealed, explaining that she knew exactly what she was “getting herself into.”

That wasn’t the only positive of working on an already-established show, either.

“Because there’s already a built-in fan base with Cruel Summer, it was really nice to see the feedback come in while we were filming, and it was, like, very reassuring,” she added. “Like, ‘Wow, so many people are gonna watch a show and they’re gonna love it, so.'”
