‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ is a 1997 slasher film by director Jim Gillespie that received a mixed reaction from critics, though it would be a hit with audiences. Its popularity would lead to two sequels in 1998 and 2006, respectively. The original film stars Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe, and Freddie Prinze Jr. as a group of friends who kill someone in a hit-and-run, dumping the victim in the sea. One year, they find themselves being stalked by a mysterious figure.

Announced in July 2019, Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures are in the process of filming a television reboot of the 1997 film, this time starring Madison Iseman, Bill Heck, Brianne Tju, Ezekiel Goodman, Ashley Moore, Sebastian Amoruso, Fiona Rene, Cassie Beck, and Brooke Bloom.

Amazon released a group of “first look” images from the television show, set to be released on October 15.

Amazon Studios describes the plot as, “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.”

According to a press release, “Amazon Prime Video announced (Aug. 11) that the first season of its highly anticipated Amazon Original series I Know What You Did Last Summer will premiere Friday, October 15 on Amazon Prime Video, with the official first-look images out now. The eight-episode Amazon Original series will be available exclusively on Prime Video in more than 240 territories and countries around the world, and is a co-production with Sony Pictures Television.”

They added, “The first four episodes will be released on October 15, with new episodes available each subsequent Friday. The series will culminate in a suspenseful, can’t-miss season finale on November 12, 2021.”

‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ was very loosely based on a 1973 suspense novel from Lois Duncan.
