In one of the most addicting mystery dramas on Freeform, Cruel Summer leaves audiences guessing on the truth as secrets slowly begins to unravel between two families. With Brooklyn Sudano’s Angela Prescott, her character was seen in the first episode of the riveting drama series. Now, her story arc comes to light in the second half of the season.
Here’s the official synopsis:
From Executive Producer Jessica Biel (The Sinner), Cruel Summer is a psychological thriller that follows two young women; Kate Wallis, the popular girl with a charmed life who one day goes missing, and Jeanette Turner, the nerdy wannabe who is accused of being connected to Kate’s disappearance. All signs point to Jeanette’s guilt, but is Kate really who she seems to be? Set over three summers and told through shifting points of view, the series challenges perception and follows how one girl can go from being a sweet outlier to the most despised person in America.
