The international Netflix hit TV series Surviving Summer has commenced production of its second season today on the iconic beaches and stunning surf coast found along the Great Ocean Road in Wadawurrung Country in Victoria.

Created by Joanna Werner and Josh Mapleston and produced by Werner Film Productions for ZDF Studios and Netflix, the second season follows Summer Torres, when she returns to Shorehaven and stuns her Aussie mates with her newfound surf skills. As she pursues her surfing dream, she’ll contend with rollercoaster romances, a mysterious new coach… and a rival surfer determined to take her down. Surviving Summer season 2 will be directed again by Sian Davies, along with Christian Van Vuuren.

Season 2 sees the return of Sky Katz as the unstoppable Summer, Kai Lewins as Ari Gibson, João Gabriel Marinho as Marlon Sousa, Savannah La Rain as Bodhi Mercer, and reigning Open Women’s Queensland Surf Champion Lilliana ‘Lil’ Bowrey as Poppy Tetanui.

Joining the cast this season is Olympia Valance (Neighbours, Playing For Keeps) as Elo, Annabel Wolfe (Black Snow) as Wren, and Josh MacQueen (Black Snow) as Baxter.
