From Executive Producers Jessica Biel and Michelle Purple (The Sinner), Cruel Summer is an unconventional mystery thriller that takes place over three summers — 1993, 1994, 1995 — in a small Texas town when a beautiful popular teen, Kate (Olivia Holt, Marvel's Cloak & Dagger), is abducted and, seemingly unrelated, a girl, Jeanette (Chiara Aurelia, Tell Me Your Secrets), goes from being a sweet, awkward outlier to the most popular girl in town and, by ’95, the most despised person in America. The two girls have no substantial connection to each other at the start of 1993 but by the end of the three summers, their lies and manipulations ultimately destroy each other’s young lives.

Each episode is told from the point of view of one of the two main girls, which will have the viewers’ loyalties constantly shifting as more information is revealed.
