In case you missed it, the influencers’ fans were absolutely shocked when the two announced their split on social media last year. Now, the 20-year-old exes are shedding light on what their lives are like post-breakup in the Snap Original docu-series; while Dylan copes by reverting back to his bad-boy ways, Summer struggles to figure out who she is as a single teen.
Before the season finale premieres today on Snapchat’s Discover page, we caught up with the series’s stars to get the inside scoop on all things “Endless Summer,” from how they’ve grown since the original season to their favorite behind-the-scenes moments and more. Keep scrolling for the 411!
How have you grown and evolved since season 1?
Summer: In season 1, I was dating my now ex-boyfriend Dylan, and I was definitely more in my shell. Season 2 showed another side of me, because I feel like now I’m more of an individual and a bit more comfortable with myself.
Dylan: Since season 1, I have learned a lot about myself. Through the experiences and pains of heartbreak, I was forced to grow…for the better.
What is your favorite behind-the-scenes memory?
Summer: The whole season was super fun to film because I got to work with all my closest friends, so going from scene to scene with them was always fun! The day we all went to the arcade and rode the ferris wheel together was pretty memorable.
Dylan: I enjoyed pranking and teasing the crew of “Endless Summer.” They feel like family to me!
What do you hope fans take away from the series?
Summer: I hope it helps people fell less alone in going through hard times…whether it be a breakup, friend drama or other difficulties they may be going through. This season was pretty heavy in a lot of different ways, so I hope fans can see me in a new light and understand that I go through the same things they do. I want them to see that sadness is something you can overcome.
Dylan: The biggest thing I hope people take away from this series is the message that it’s okay not to be okay. Too many people feel like they’re alone & that no one can relate to them. The best way that I have learned to deal with this feeling is to let myself feel. I chose to be so vulnerable with my emotions because I want the audience to be able to connect with me. I want them to see that there are many others who feel that same pain of heartbreak in many different forms.
