How I Know What You Did Last Summer Came Back For a Newer, Queerer Generation

The first season of Amazon Prime Video's thrilling, horror-tinged teen drama series I Know What You Did Last Summer just wrapped up, and it brought a fresh, modern, and LGBTQ-inclusive take that fans, old and new, can appreciate.

Based on Lois Duncan's 1973 novel of the same name — which was also the basis of the iconic late '90s film franchise (starring greats like Jennifer Love Hewitt and Sarah Michelle Gellar) — I Know What You Did Last Summer tells the story of "a group of teenagers that find themselves bound together by a dark secret and stalked by a brutal killer one year after the fatal car accident that haunted their graduation night," according to the show's official description. "As they try to piece together who’s after them, they reveal the dark side of their seemingly perfect town—and themselves. Everyone is hiding something, and uncovering the wrong secret could be deadly."

Out got to speak to some of the show's cast, including Madison Iseman (Allison & Lennon), Ezekiel Goodman (Dylan), and Ashley Moore (Riley), about bringing queer characters to the series, if they felt pressure considering how beloved the media franchise is, and more! 

All episodes of the first season of I Know What You Did Last Summer are now streaming on Amazon Prime Video
