The official release date for Season 2 of 'Summertime' is not yet announced. MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) will update this article when it is announced.

Plot

Details about the plot of Season 2 are not yet made public, except this: "The second season of Summertime will take the audience back to the summer atmosphere on Italy's Adriatic Coast". In the first season, we followed Summer as she embarked on a coming-of-age journey. Along the way, she found her dreams, aspirations and hope. Summer is not the only one who is on the quest for answers. Along with Summer, her friends are also on a similar journey. In Season 1, they might have found some of these answers, but there is more to come and it might not come easy.

Towards the end of Season 1, Summer, a headstrong, committed, dedicated and intelligent young girl, had learned a lot of lessons not only about life but also about herself.

Blue (Alicia Ann Edogamhe), Summer's sister, is also set to reprise her role. By the end of the previous season, blue had some important lessons about love and life to learn. After the accident that almost took her life, she is now looking to reconstruct herself. But most importantly, it looks like she is going to reconstruct her expectations of love and life.
