Trailer Teases ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ Series

Looking back on the sultry summer months can be pleasant…unless something very bad happened back then.

Amazon Prime Video is preparing to debut an eight-episode TV series I Know What You Did Last Summer, a small-screen event based on the hit 1997 feature film, next month. And, as reported by movieweb.com, the first teaser trailer for the show was released this week. Check it out on this page.

The show–slated to start streaming on Amazon Prime Oct. 15–will have a storyline similar to the original slasher film (in which several teenagers are stalked by a killer one year after a fatal car accident), but it will be told with a “modern take.”

Executive producer Sara Goodman, who developed the series, promised “there will be blood. I’ve also put little Easter eggs throughout for the diehard fans, but you do not have to have seen the movie to be a fan of the show.”

Goodman added that these new characters “are not just running from a stalker, they are also having relationships and issues with their families. There’s more than just the mystery of who’s after them. It’s very much a mystery of who they really are.”

Craig William Macneill–who helmed The Boy and episodes of NOS4R2 and Castle Rock–directed the pilot which, like the original film, draws its inspiration from Lois Duncan’s 1973 novel.

The cast of young actors features Madison Iseman, Brianne Tju, Ezekiel Goodman, Ashley Moore, Sebastian Amoruso, Fiona Rene, Cassie Beck, Brooke Bloom, Sonya Balmores and Bill Heck.

The original film–directed by Jim Gillespie from a screenplay by Kevin Williamson (Scream)–spotlighted such up-and-comers as Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe and Freddie Prinze Jr. Despite lukewarm reviews, the movie pulled in $125 million worldwide on a budget of $17 million.
