WARNING: Contains minor spoilers from Cruel Summer
How did Cruel Summer end?
The truth was finally revealed during Cruel Summer‘s season finale, and at first it seemed a bit tame – until one final MAJOR twist.
First off, during a face-to-face chat inside Martin’s home it was revealed that Jeanette hadn't been the person that Kate claimed she had seen, after she'd been kidnapped.
In fact it was Jeanette's former friend and Kate's new BFF, Mallory.
Mallory had witnessed Jeanette breaking into Martin’s home and spotted a blonde in the window, but since she never saw the mystery woman’s face, Mallory assumed it was Martin’s girlfriend or sister.
Then when Kate was rescued, Mallory realized the truth, but chose to not come forward.
This revelation meant Jeanette was finally in the clear, after being accused of not reporting Kate's kidnap.
In a surprise turn of events, Kate chose to forgive Mallory and in one of the final scenes we saw the pair of them kissing as they danced in the street.
As for the mystery of Annabelle, that was the name of Martin’s gun, which he almost killed himself with.
When he instead dropped it on the ground in the basement, Kate picked it up and shot Martin, sitting with him all night before calling the police the next day.
And what happened to Jeanette, We hear you ask.
Well after going on national TV to talk about her how she was wrongly accused, she said she "forgave Kate" for her accusation.
But in a chilling final scene it was revealed that she DID know that Kate was in kidnapper Martin's house all along.
We saw her breaking into Martin's house and hear Kate begging for help from behind the basement door.
Will there be a Cruel Summer season 2?
Cruel Summer has only been greenlighted for its debut season so far, but that doesn't mean there isn't a chance we'll see a season 2 announcement soon.
Like most shows, news on a second series is dependent on how the show performs in its first season, and the good news is, it has been a ratings winner.
If season 2 goes ahead, it is possible we'll see the story continue with the same cast in a different time period.
As we now know Jeanette DID know along, it could follow this storyline.
Showrunners could also choose to take on an anthology-style method of storytelling, then it's likely we'll see brand new mysteries unfold in subsequent seasons.
