The heartwarming new series Surviving Summer focuses on the life of Summer Torress (Sky Katz), a Brooklyn teenager who is sent to live in an isolated part of Australia with her aunt.
Surviving summer is a relaxed story with stunning scenery. It makes everyone jealous of the life of the main character surfing at the sunny beaches of Australia.
Fans have now had ample time to complete the first episode. The question is: will there be another season? If so, when?
Is There A Season 2 of Survival Summer?
Netflix has not yet announced any information about a second season Surviving summer. However, the fact that the first season of Surviving Summer was released in this month doesn’t necessarily mean there won’t be another. To keep with the title, we expect Netflix to release another season sometime next summer.
What will happen in Season 2?
Season one shows Summer’s growing love for her new home (despite her initial reluctance). We watch her discover a passion for surfing and fall in love with Ari Gibson (Kai Lewins).
Although we haven’t heard any details about the plot of another season, Surviving Summer star Sky Katz said to The Express “Summer finally feels…something feels right for once” She is truly grateful for being shown the direction she can take.
Season 1’s ending on a cliffhanger is a teaser for Surviving summer. We see the protagonist walking through an airport, looking at the photos of her new friends. Sky said “listen, we hope so” when asked about another season.
Who will be in the Cast of Season 2?
If nothing happens off-camera concerning cast members, there’s no reason why we wouldn’t see them return for season 2 of Surviving summer.
Who will be the star of Surviving summer season 2?
The fate of the series and the location will determine who is cast in season 2. We would still like to see five of the main cast members return for season 2. That’s Sky Katz as Summer Torres; Kai Lewins is Ari Gibson; Lilliana Bowrey plays Poppy Tetanui; Joao Gabriel Marinho is Marlon Sousa; and Savannah La Rain plays Bodhi Johnson.
What is the performance of Summer on Netflix?
Although viewing metrics are not yet available for the show, we have some sources that can tell us how the show is doing.
We got our first glimpse of the show’s performance on June 14th, right from Netflix, straight from the horse’s mouth.
The show was not able to reach the top 10 on TV (English) in its first three days, meaning it had less than 8.7M minutes viewed. However, it did appear in its first full week of Netflix (June 6-12).
It was viewed 20.3M times, which suggests that it started slowly but is gradually picking up in popularity.
What is the show’s performance in raw top 10 data? FlixPatrol can help us find out which countries the series is most successful in. They show that it’s best performing in Eastern Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.
The data shows that the show peaked on June 7, four days after its debut, picking up 363 points.
It also qualifies to be one of the Netflix Kids top 10, if it is performing well.
Below is a heat map that shows where FlixPatrol is picking up most points in the top 10.
Other metrics show that the show is now the 108th most watched title on MovieMeter. This rise from 1,021st in its first week.
The show currently has 823 reviews and has received a 6.2 rating on IMDb. Reviews varied from calling the show boring to claiming that it was one of Australia’s best shows.
What to expect from Surviving Summer season 2 on Netflix
If the series is renewed, events will likely continue as they did in episode 10.
Here’s a quick recap of episode 10.
Season 2 will likely continue with Summer in New York (just like season 1), with possibly a new challenge or reason for her to travel to Australia to spend more time with her friends.
We could see a reverse in the play. Could her friends join her for season 2 in New York? We will see.
