It’s a hard time to be a fan of Prime Video’s The Summer I Turned PrettyYes, we know the show has already been renewed which is so exciting; however, we’re currently in the midst of the show’s latest hiatus and after that season 2 ending we have a lot of questions about what will be coming our way when season 3 arrives.

Will the show continue to follow the events of the books or might we finally see them go off-script in season 3 as Prime Video looks to extend the show’s run? Will Belly and Jeremiah be able to enjoy their relationship now that they’re both all in or will Conrad get the last laugh in the end?

We’re going to have to wait for season 3 to see what exactly the creative team cooks up and we’re fortunate to know a third season is coming… even if we don’t know much about the season.

Little is known about what Prime Video has in store for The Summer I Turned Pretty season 3 outside of the fact that it will be the show’s biggest season yet! Prime is giving season 3 ten episodes, making it the show’s biggest season yet. Unfortunately, the number of episodes in the season won’t be the only reason it’ll take longer to watch The Summer I Turned Pretty season 3.

The Summer I Turned Pretty season 3 updates: Commercials are coming

One of the best things about Prime Video is that fans can enjoy shows such as The Summer I Turned Pretty without commercial interruptions. Well, that’s about to change next year. Beginning in early 2024, Prime Video will be rolling out new plans which will include an ad tier that is going to force fans to watch commercials between episodes of their favorite Prime Video series including The Summer I Turned Pretty. 

If fans want to be able to continue to watch Prime Originals without any ads, they’re going to have to start paying an additional fee in addition to the annual subscription to Amazon’s overall Prime service. In addition to forking over $139 annually for Prime Video, subscribers will have to pay an additional $2.99 a month to enjoy shows such as The Summer I Turned Pretty without any ads.

This is a major departure for Prime Video but is part of a growing trend for streaming services. In recent months, several streamers including Netflix have rolled out ad tiers that force users to either pay more to continue to enjoy streaming their favorite shows and movies without ads or pay less but deal with commercials.

The thought of having a commercial break cut into episodes of The Summer I Turned Pretty is definitely something we did not have on our 2024 bingo board and we’re not exactly thrilled with the decision ahead.

It’s as if Prime Video is putting us in Belly’s shoes and making us choose between two very different options and just like Belly, we’re not sure which to choose!
