Amazon's I Know What You Did Last Summer is heading our way at the end of the year, with the series based on the iconic 90s slasher film and original novel by Lois Duncan. Whilst there have been sequels for this film, this is the first time it has been adapted into a TV series format.

This isn't the first time we've seen a slasher film adapted into a series, as Netflix released a TV version of Scream in 2015. Fans of that won't want to miss out on the I Know What You Did Last Summer series, which is promising to stay faithful to the original story fans know and love, while still offering something fresh and exciting.

Better yet, this series is produced by Saw director James Wan alongside the original I Know What You Did Last Summer producers Erik Feig and Neal H. Moritz, so you can rest assured this adaptation will be in good hands.
