Executive produced by Jessica Biel stars Chiara Aurelia, Freeform just premiered the first two episodes of their new thriller Cruel Summer. It’s set in the 1990s and follows what happens in a small town when the most popular girl in school disappears and Jeanette Turner (Chiara Aurelia), who may be involved in the kidnapping of a classmate.
A small Texas town when a beautiful popular teen, Kate, is abducted and, seemingly unrelated, a girl, Jeanette, goes from being a sweet, awkward outlier to the most popular girl in town and, by ’95, the most despised person in America.
The Screenplay unveils with three separate timelines, loads of suspect characters, and a few dozen wigs for the characters, there is a lot to unpack in this show.
And it has gained a lot of attention and fans who love this show and the first two episodes. Let’s see some tweets.

#CruelSummer was designed in a lab to be extremely my shit: teen murder/thriller mystery, female protagonist playing drastically different incarnations in multiple timeframes, non-linear structure that keeps raising new questions… could stand to have a little more humor though
