It is reported that Netflix is secretly making the sequel movie of ‘The Last Summer’. Will it be yet another piece of typical Hollywood teen drama like its parent movie?

Should you even remember Netflix’s ‘The Last Summer’ except for its hot casting?
Netflix’s ‘The Last Summer’ hasn’t lasted in our memory in terms of story. But the post-high school drama follows a group of recent grads has a cast of rising young stars of Hollywood representing Chicago teens. The story is pretty boring but the cast is drool-worthy!
The cast is a veritable bunch of who’s who 20 something Hollywood actors and familiar faces from hit TV shows like ‘Good Trouble’, ‘Teen Wolf’, ‘13 Reasons Why’, and ‘Riverdale’ all experiencing one last summer. All thanks to the casting director!
Surely, she would have tricked you. Sosie, daughter of Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick is a chameleon and keeps changing her appearance in every character she plays. It is not surprising that you failed to recognise her. She is Sky Miller from Netflix’s hit drama ‘13 Reasons Why’ and also appeared in HBO series ‘Here and Now’.
Tyler Posey as Chicago Cubs Rookie Ricky
You already know him, right? He played the lead character Scott in MTV’s ‘Teen Wolf’. On ‘The Last Summer’, he is stuck in a love triangle with Erin.
Fans are always pushing for the reboot of Teen Wolf. After the show ended in 2017, but he can be seen in ‘Now Apocalypse’ on Starz. You will soon see him in CW’s recently announced ‘The Lost Boys’.
Halston Sage as Erin
On ‘The Last Summer’, Erin was involved in the love triangle with her ex-boyfriend (Jacob Latimore’s Alec) and a new prospect, Posey’s Ricky.
Halston plays Lieutenant Alara Kitan on Fox’s ‘The Orville’ but due to makeup, it is hard to recognise her. You must have noticed her in movies like ‘Before I Fall’ and ‘Paper Towns’. She will also star in the upcoming comedy show ‘Late Night with Mindy Kaling and Emma Thompson’.
Jacob Latimore as Alec
In ‘The Last Summer’, Alec is going through a difficult break-up and it’s hard for him to move on.
Jacob earned fame for himself in the 2013 musical film ‘Black Nativity’. From there on, he appeared in ‘The Maze Runner’, ‘Collateral Beauty’, and another Netflix comedy called ‘Candy Jar’. You can currently watch him in Showtime’s critically-acclaimed series ‘The Chi’.
Maia Mitchell Plays Phoebe
Phoebe is Apa’s crush in ‘The Last Summer’ but the love comes with problems for her.
Maia generally plays characters who land up in soup every time. Remember Callie on Freeform’s The Fosters.
K.J. Apa as Griffin
Apa loves Maia in ‘The Last Summer’ but holds a secret that he’s hiding from everyone.
You can easily recognise him from ‘Riverdale’.
Possibility of another shallow teen drama
The movie thrives only on the shoulders on its cast. It fails to impress in terms of story. Netflix has disappointed the audience by making a shallow movie when its past is glorious with teenage stuff like ‘13 Reasons Why’, ‘Sex Education’.
While the cast of rising young stars, like K.J. Apa (‘Riverdale’), Maia Mitchell (‘The Fosters’), Halston Sage (‘Paper Towns’), and Tyler Posey (‘Teen Wolf’) is #summergoals but do the story hold enough water for a sequel?
It is rumoured that Netflix is secretly making ‘The Last Summer’. “Popsugar,” wrote that ‘The Last Summer’ sequel movie is possible. Because it’s an original script and not an adaptation, creators can play with the screenplay. The possibility of ‘The Last Summer’ goes down to viewership. Netflix doesn’t release any data related to viewership numbers, though it has started giving the Top 10 Trending list.
Is Netflix actually secretly filming ‘The Last Summer’ sequel?
The news of Netflix secretly filming ‘The Last Summer’ sequel movie is false as per the current updates. The streaming giant doesn’t go for sequels unless the project is very big. ‘Only To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before’ and ‘A Christmas Prince’ managed to get sequels so far. Even the exceptional ‘Set It Up’ isn’t getting a sequel at the moment.
At this point, we’ll have to wait to see if ‘The Last Summer’ is easily forgotten by Netflix. We hope ‘The Last Summer’ doesn’t last so soon. The sequel of ‘The Last Summer’ comes even hotter with a story to relish.
