I Know What You Did Last Summer Season 1 Release Date and Where You Can Watch It

What is I Know What You Did Last Summer?
In this case, I Know What You Did Last Summer is an Amazon Original streaming television series. Though the first season is only eight episodes, press releases make it sound like they do hope to continue the story in subsequent seasons in the manner of MTV/VH1’s Scream.
The series is a new YA adaptation of Lois Duncan’s 1973 novel I Know What You Did Last Summer. The book was the source material for a well-known 1997 teen slasher film, in which a killer known as the Fisherman used a meat hook to stalk a young Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillipe, and Freddie Prinze, Jr. That film spawned an immediate sequel, I Still Know What You Did Last Summer, and, years later, a direct-to-video sequel, I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer, which we spelunked in our DTV Descent column last year.
