After just one season that premiered less than three months ago, Amazon Prime Video has canceled their TV reboot of I know what you did last summer, a modern version of the 1973 novel and 1990s slasher film series. Co-produced by The Conjuring’s James Wan and his Atomic Monster banner, the series followed a similar plot to previous versions, with some teens being chased by a killer following a fatal accident, a killer mocking them for knowing their past misdeeds. Deadline first reported the news of the cancellation. The series premiered its first episode back in October and ended in November.
In a previous interview with ComicBook.com, I know what you did last summer showrunner Sara Goodman teased the plans for another season, something we now sadly know will not happen. “I think, thematically, that these young adults have this misfortune and are doing the wrong thing and what it is doing to them,” she told us back in the fall. “Thematically, like the revealing heart, I think it was very important for me to honor and make sure it was still there.”
The series starred Madison Iseman (Jumanji: The next level), Brianne Tju (Light as a feather), Ezekiel Goodman, Ashley Moore (Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping), Sebastian Amoruso (Solve), Fiona Rene (Stumptown), Cassie Beck (Connection), Brooke Bloom (Homecoming), Sonya Balmores (Marvel’s Inhumans), and Bill Heck (I’m your woman).
Unlike the previous film version, the new series did not have a faceless fisherman who was accidentally killed by teenagers, only to pursue them with notes with the title. Instead, one half of a pair of twins was the unfortunate victim, but in a twist, the other side of the equation assumed the identity of their dead siblings, allowing everyone to believe they were the dead one. Madison Iseman played the role of the twins, having double duty in front of the camera. However, the twists did not stop there, and should you be interested, it’s all streamed on Prime Video.
“In terms of getting these characters apart and who they were, that’s my fun part; that’s what I love to do. But the technical side of it was so much, but it went so smoothly,” Iseman recalled. about the experience for ComicBook. com. “We had amazing directors. My actor was amazing and all of those elements help so much when it comes to playing twins.”
