“I Know What You Did Last Summer” Series Remake Announces New Cast


Sony Pictures Television and Amazon Studios have announced a forthcoming series remake of staple ’90s horror film I Know What You Did Last Summer, and the cast of soon-to-be terrified teens is officially confirmed.

On Monday, January 11, the studios confirmed a number of cast members, including Madison Iseman, who starred in Jumanji: The Next Level, Ashley Moore of Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, and Brianne Tju, who starred in Light as a Feather. Other notable names include Sebastian Amoruso from Solve, Cassie Beck of Connecting, Brooke Bloom of Homecoming, newcomer Ezekiel Goodman, Bill Heck from I’m Your Woman, and Fiona Rene of Stumptown. 

Former Gossip Girl producer Sara Goodman will write and executive produce the series, along with executive producers Shay Hatten, Original Film’s Neal Moritz and Pavun Shetty and Atomic Monster’s James Wan, Rob Hackett, and Michael Clear. For the first episode, Craig Macneill will direct and executive produce.

News of the casting didn’t come with any potential clues as to possible roles, but Deadline speculates that Madison is set to portray a Jennifer Love Hewitt-esque lead character. 

Additionally, the series was confirmed to take its basis from the original 1973 novel that the initial film franchise was also based on. “In a town full of secrets, a group of teenagers are stalked by a mysterious killer a year after a fatal accident on their graduation night,” an initial description of the series read in a press release.

Amazon Studios first confirmed it had ordered the series back in October, Deadline reported. At the time, Albert Cheng, COO and CO-Head of Television, Amazon Studios, called the remake a “perfectly twisted update to the iconic slasher movie.”

Sharing news of her new role with Instagram, Madison, who also starred in Still the King alongside Billy Ray Cyrus, joked about her possible new title, writing, “Does this make me an official scream queen? Eeeeeep.” Her future costars, including Brianne and Ezekiel also celebrated the news with their followers.

A premiere date for the series hasn’t yet been set, but production will begin this month in Hawaii, a press release reports. I Know What You Did Last Summer will stream on Amazon Prime Video.
