Writter and Executive Producer Sara Goodman is adapting I Know What You Did Last Summer to the small screen as a series on Amazon Prime Video.
As with the iconic 1997 film based on Lois Duncan’s 1973 novel, the series will tell the story of a group of teens involved in a fatal car accident one fateful summer and discover they can’t escape their past.
At Friday’s New York Comic Con virtual panel, the cast received a seal of approval and best wishes from original stars Freddie Prinze Jr., Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe, and finally Jennifer Love Hewitt took turns asking the new cast questions.
Comic Con audiences were also treated to an exclusive first look at the new show as we watched this cast experience the titular thing they did last summer, the car crash.
As to whether the original cast would turn up in any way in the series, Goodman didn’t rule it out: “In season one, there may be an opening for that.”
“If they had asked me years ago what I thought about it,” Jennifer Love Hewitt says quoting her famous line from the original, “I would have of course said ‘WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR, HUH?! WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!’”
I Know What You Did Last Summer drops its first four episodes on Friday, October 15th.
