4. Will Season 2 Have More Romance?

In addition to Maddie and Cal, season one also left us wondering about another relationship: Ty and Annie. Carson Rowland told PureWow he’s excited to see where their story line progresses, despite the rocky start.

“I would love to see what happens with Ty and Annie,” he said. “They are essentially ‘meant to be’ and the first season was a chaotic one for those two and their relationship.”

We can't wait to see where this romance goes in season two.
