I Know What You Did Last Summer series cancelled after one season

Last Updated on January 12, 2022

The Amazon Prime series inspired by the 1997 slasher I Know What You Did Last Summer (watch the movie HERE) and the 1973 Lois Duncan novel that film was based on wrapped up the eight-episode run of its first season back in November… and now it has been confirmed by Variety that there won’t be a second season. The series has been cancelled.

While I haven’t taken the time to watch this version of I Know What You Did Last Summer yet, I have heard that the mystery was solved by the end of the season, so a series equivalent of I Still Know What You Did Last Summer wasn’t entirely necessary.

From Amazon Studios, Sony Pictures Television, and Original Film, the series version of 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…

The show starred Madison Iseman, Brianne Tju, Ezekiel Goodman, Ashley Moore, Sebastian Amoruso, Fiona Rene, Cassie Beck, Brooke Bloom, Bill Heck, and Sonya Balmores.

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.

Our own Alex Maidy gave the first four episodes of the show a 7/10 review that you can read at THIS LINK.
