It was just last week that Amazon released a teaser trailer for their eight episode series inspired by the 1997 slasher I Know What You Did Last Summer (watch it HERE) and the 1973 Lois Duncan novel that film was based on, and now they’ve already dropped the full trailer online. You can check it out in the embed above and see if this looks like a show you’d like to watch when it reaches Amazon Prime on October 15th.
The first four episodes of the show will be available to watch on October 15th, and the remaining four will be released on a weekly basis. A new episode will be released on Amazon every Friday, building up to the season finale on November 12th.
Coming to us from Amazon Studios, Sony Pictures Television, and Original Film, this take on I Know What You Did Last Summer was written by Preacher and Gossip Girl alum Sara Goodman, with Craig William Macneill (Lizzie) directing the pilot. The show has the following synopsis:
One year after the fatal car accident that haunted their graduation night, a group of teenagers find themselves bound together by a dark secret and stalked by a brutal killer. As they try to piece together who’s after them, they reveal the dark side of their seemingly perfect town — and themselves. Everyone is hiding something, and uncovering the wrong secret could be deadly…
Madison Iseman, Brianne Tju, Ezekiel Goodman, Ashley Moore, Sebastian Amoruso, Fiona Rene, Cassie Beck, Brooke Bloom, Bill Heck, and Sonya Balmores star.
Filmed in Hawaii, I Know What You Did Last Summer was executive produced by Goodman, along with Shay Hatten, Original Film’s Neal H. Moritz and Pavun Shetty, Atomic Monster’s James Wan, Rob Hackett, and Michael Clear, plus Erik Feig, who produced the ’97 film with Moritz.
I loved the ’97 movie, but the more I see of this show the more I get the feeling that I’m not going to be so enamored with the story this time around.
