One of the bigger changes in The Summer I Turned Pretty‘s transition from novel to TV series involves the character of Jeremiah Fisher.

One of two brothers vying for the heart of 16-year-old Isabel “Belly” Conklin (Lola Tung) in Prime Video’s YA drama

In Prime Video’s YA drama (which premiered Friday with all seven episodes), Jeremiah is sexually fluid compared to his book counterpart. 

Episode 2, he points out all the girls and boys at the country club that he’s kissed, then later describes himself as an equal opportunity flirt.

“My approach to this adaptation was: How would I tell the story in 2022? What would that look like? 

And how would that change things?” co-showrunner Jenny Han, who wrote the novels, tells TVLine about the series. 

Given that he’s just a high schooler, Jeremiah is still exploring his sexuality and isn’t ready to identify as bisexual, Han adds.

The books’ central love triangle of Belly, Jeremiah and the other Fisher brother, Conrad (Christopher Briney), remains “intact” in the show
