The Summer I Turned Pretty is based on the same-named book and tells the story of a young girl who loves living. She visits Cousins Beach every summer to spend the summer with Susannah, a friend of her mother. She grows close to Susannah and her two daughters, Conrad and Jeremiah, over time.
Belly has loved Conrad for a long time, but he hasn''t really paid her much attention in that way. Belly is about to turn 16 and hopes that things will change now. She hopes that people will stop seeing her as a child.
When both Conrad and Jeremiah see her in a different direction, Belly realizes that they have a special bond with her and want it to grow. This makes her have to choose between two bad choices, which is where the drama comes from.
Conrad is the quieter, while Jeremiah is more outgoing and flashy. The show reflects how his character is depicted in the book, but it does make a difference. Here are some facts to help you know about Jeremiah''s sexuality.
Is Jeremiah Bisexual?
Jeremiah Fisher is both gay and straight in the TV version of The Summer I Turned Pretty. He doesn''t hide how he feels like his brother Conrad does, and often tells him what he means. He is also very flirty and can make anyone fall in love with him.
He is often seen having fun at parties on screen, which is a good reflection of his experience. In the book, his name is only related to girls, but in the show, he is more open to the idea. For the first time at the club where he and Steven are preparing for the summer, Jeremiah''s interest in more than one gender is revealed.
Several boys and girls go around as he informs Steven about his activities. We see him again later at a party, where he flirts with a boy and they end up kissing. This is not the case in Jeremiah.
How it affected?
Although his sexuality changes, Jeremiah is still at his heart as he was in the book. In an interview with Variety, author Jenny Han explained why the story had to be changed from the book to the movie. It was about bringing the story up to date for contemporary audiences. By reimagining the story about a decade and a half later, the writers were able to add additional pieces that were relevant to the present.
Han said, The characters'' core is still the same to me. It''s only that I''m not sure how I would write about this person in 2022 as compared to how I did 13 years ago.
The most important things about Jeremiah are how easy he is, and how he treats Belly. Neither change is made in the show. So, if you are on Team Jeremiah, you should know that no matter how many dates he has, his heart will always be with Belly.
