After just one season, Amazon Studios puts a knife into their I Know What You Did Last Summer series reboot, ending all hopes for a season 2.
Amazon Studios has canceled their teen slasher series, I Know What You Did Last Summer, after only one season. Created by Preacher executive producer, Sarah Goodman, based on the 1973 novel and 1997 film of the same name, development on the series was first announced by the streamer in 2019. Executive produced by Fast and the Furious’ Neal H. Moritz and Aquaman director James Wan, the series premiered on October 15, 2021.
Receiving less than stellar reviews, the I Know What You Did Last Summer was part of Amazon’s attempts to appeal to a young adult audience and capitalize on a recent revival of slasher horror properties. Panned for its plot holes and unsatisfactory twists, the series currently holds only a 40% rating on review aggregator site, Rotten Tomatoes. Now, Deadline is reporting that Amazon Studios has elected not to push forward with a second season, after the season 1 finale aired on November 12.
This announcement probably comes as little surprise, given not only the lack of enthusiasm critics had for the series, but also the manner in which the first season wrapped up. Revealing Brianne Tju’s Margot as the killer, the finale effectively wrapped up the key mystery underlying the entire show. While some loose ends remain, such as the Wai Huna cult, there would probably be little real fodder to keep the story going for another season. While this news may disappoint fans of I Know What You Did Last Summer, there are sure to be plenty of other slasher properties to keep them guessing for years to come.
