‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ Has Been Canceled

by Anthony Pernicka

Amazon Prime Video has canceled the new series I Know What You Did Last Summer after only one season.

We had high hopes for the teen horror series based on the 1973 novel which was, in turn, adapted into a feature film in 1997.  The movie grossed $125.3 million at the international box office.

Unfortunately, the series was not able to drum up the same sort of excitement.  Critics and fans on Rotten Tomatoes gave the Amazon series an average score of 40%.  Most of the reviews agree that the acting was well done, but the story lacked in exciting its viewers.

I Know What You Did Last Summer

The critic consensus: A bloodless slasher that fails to congeal, I Know What You Did Last Summer hacks at its killer cast with plot holes and unsatisfying twists.

Even though I Know What You Did Last Summer failed to hit the mark with audiences, Amazon Studios is continuing its push towards more ‘Young Adult’ programming.   The streamer has breakout The Wilds, which is returning for a second season, animated series Fairfax, which is in the middle of a two-season pickup, and the upcoming The Summer I Turned Pretty, a TV series adaptation of the YA novel series from Jenny Han, the author behind To All The Boys I Loved Before.
