Amazon cancels new thriller series after one season

After just one season that premiered less than three months ago, Amazon Prime Video has canceled their television reboot I know what you did last summer, a modern version of the 1973 novel and 90s slasher film series. Co-produced by James Wan of The Conjuring and his Atomic Monster banner, the series followed a similar plot to the previous versions in which some teens are stalked by a murderer after a fatal accident, a murderer who taunts them for having knowledge of their past misdeeds. Deadline first reported the news of the cancellation. The series premiered in October and ended in November.

Speaking in a previous interview with ComicBook.com, I know what you did last summer showrunner Sara Goodman teased plans for a second season, something we now sadly know won’t happen. “I think, thematically, these young adults have had this accident and are doing the wrong thing and what it’s doing to them,” she told us in the fall. “Thematically, like that telltale 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 Stop), Sebastian Amoruso (To resolve), Fiona Rene (Stumptown), Cassie Beck (To connect), Brooke Bloom (Homecoming), Sonya Balmores (Marvel’s Inhumans), and Bill Heck (I am your wife).

Unlike the previous film version, the new series didn’t have a faceless fisherman accidentally killed by the teens to stalk them with captions. Instead, half of twins were the unfortunate victim, but all of a sudden the other side of the equation took on the identity of their dead sibling, making everyone think they were the dead ones. Madison Iseman played the part of the twins, pulling double for the camera. The twists didn’t stop there though, and if you’re interested, the whole thing will be streamed on Prime Video.

“As for separating these characters and who they were, that’s my fun part; that’s what I like to do. But the technical side was so much, but it went so smoothly,” Iseman recalled to ComicBook about the experience. com. “We had great directors. My acting doubles were fantastic and all those elements help a lot when it comes to playing twins.”
