It'll be a summer we'll never, ever forget. 

New blood is coming to Cousins Beach, as The Closer's Kyra Sedgwick and Eighth Grade's Elsie Fisher have joined the cast of the second season of Prime Video's The Summer I Turned Pretty

Fisher broke the news on her Instagram Aug. 31, posting a behind-the-scenes video of herself and Sedgwick. In the clip, the person holding the camera opens up Fisher's trailer door, which is marked Skye. After doing a dance, Fisher turns the camera to hit Sedgwick, who is catching up on Jenny Han's It's Not Summer Without You, a.k.a. the sequel to The Summer I Turned Pretty, which the series is based on. 

"#TheSummerITurnedPretty," Fisher captioned the post. "SEE U SOON PALS."

Han herself showed her support for Fisher's casting, commenting heart and praising hand emojis on the video.

Though descriptions of Fisher and Sedgwick's characters aren't yet public, Skye isn't a character in the book version, meaning the show might be making a few changes for their second adaptation. Hopefully, they're not members of another love triangle—these relationship dynamics are already messy enough. 

9 Changes The Summer I Turned Pretty TV Series Made to the Book

The Summer I Turned Pretty's cast already has a couple changes in mind for what they would like to see for season two. Christopher Briney, who plays Conrad, told E! News in June that he wants "to see Conrad be a jerk at prom."

"That's what I want to see," he said. "I want to see him be rude."

On the other hand, Gavin Casalegno, who plays Conrad's brother Jeremiah (and Belly's other love interest), said he wants to turn back the clock in season two. 

"I definitely think the flashbacks would be a blast," he said. "It's something so special to be able to look forward to how a book was written and trying to translate that into a series, and also fit it in with the changes that were made for season one from book one. I'm excited to see how it plays out, genuinely."

No word yet on whether flashbacks or prom are happening, but in the meantime, season one of The Summer I Turned Pretty is now available to stream on Prime Video.
