A TV series based on the classic horror I Know What You Did Last Summer is coming to Amazon Prime
“Someone knows their secret, someone knows they're scared… and someone knows what they did last summer.”
So went the tag-line for the rather self-explanatory 1997 horror movie I Know What You Did Last Summer, which horror fans of a certain age will be delighted to learn is making a comeback… in TV form.
The late ‘90s was something of a golden age for the horror genre, producing iconic flicks such as Scream, Urban Legend and The Blair Witch Project.
The screenplay for I Know What You Did Last Summer came from the man behind Scream, Kevin Williamson, and you couldn’t have cobbled together a more-1997 cast if you tried, with Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe and Freddie Prinze Jr. all playing starring roles.

23 years on, it’s making a return to television on Amazon Prime, with a modern take on the movie from Sony Pictures Television set to stream in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide.
The premise for the TV series follows a similar theme to the movie, which was based on a 1973 novel by Lois Duncan.
A group of teenagers are stalked by a mysterious killer a year after a fatal accident on their graduation night, with chilling consequences. There's no sign of a release date just yet, but watch this space.
“The best horror franchises always have another scare coming, and this I Know What You Did Last Summer series from Sara Goodman is a perfectly twisted update to the iconic slasher movie,” said Albert Cheng, COO and Co-Head of Television, Amazon Studios.
“Any way you slice it, our global Prime Video customers will love this modern take on the fan favourite film.”
