Cruel Summer Season 2 Ep. 1 Preview: Megan Likes Her Personal Space

Returning for a second season on June 5th, here's a look at a new sneak preview for the Season 2 opener of Freeform's Cruel Summer.

With this Monday bringing the second season premiere of Freeform, Bert V. Royal & showrunner Elle Triedman's Cruel Summer, we have another sneak preview to pass along for the season opener, S02E01 "Welcome to Chatham." After our previous two looks at Megan (Sadie Stanley) & Isabella's (Lexi Underwood) growing bond, we're getting a look back to when Megan first learned that Isabella was coming to stay with them. Between Megan's concerns for her personal space and her mom's final words, you can't walk away from the following clip without feeling about a hundred pounds worth of foreboding (which is an impressive feat to pull off in less than a minute).
