Will there be a season two of Cruel Summer?

If you're a fan of the show, we have great news - there will be a second season.

Freeform President Tara Duncan said in a statement: "Renewing Cruel Summer for a Season 2 was an easy decision.

"It’s the biggest series debut in Freeform’s history and the audience response has been overwhelmingly positive. [Executive producers] Jessica [Biel], Michelle [Purple] and [showrunner] Tia [Napolitano] did a phenomenal job telling an addictive story that’s tapped into the cultural zeitgeist. I’m excited to see where they take the series next."
