I Know What You Did Last Summer is based on a 1973 YA suspense novel by Lois Duncan with the same name, about four teens involved in a hit-and-run accident that kills a boy. The group makes a pact to not discuss that night, but one girl ends up receiving a note informing her that someone knows what she did last summer.
The book spawned 3 movies, the 1997 horror film, I Know What You Did Last Summer, the 1998 film, I Still Know What You Did Last Summer, and the 2006 film, I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer. Fans of the original movies can watch for Easter Eggs in the TV Series.

A group of friends who accidentally kill someone. “One year after the fatal car accident that haunted their graduation night, a group of teenagers find themselves bound together by a dark secret and stalked by a brutal killer,” “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.”

The characters are “not just running from a stalker” in the series. “They also are having relationships and they’re having issues with their families and they’re dealing with their real f**king lives,”. “There’s more than just the mystery of who’s after them. It’s very much a mystery of who they really are.

Madison Iseman is playing two roles as Lennon Grant, affectionately known as Lemon, and her twin sister Allison. Although they look alike, the twin sisters have grown apart due to their mother’s tragic death by suicide some time before. While Allison has grown antisocial and despondent, Lennon has become experience-driven, doing drugs, having ethically-questionable sexual encounters and breaking a lot of hearts along the way. Which one was behind the wheel of the car that night and which one was in front of it?

Amazon’s ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’: TV Review

Quote

This new take absolutely has an angle all its own, and a justification for retelling this story. Does that mean it’s good? Nah. It’s marred by mediocre performances, some bad directing choices and an evasive approach to its chosen genre. But in its sea of logical flaws, it’s captivatingly confusing.

Amazon’s I Know What You Did Last Summer Fails its Premise

Quote

You know how a lot of slasher movies stop making sense if you think about them for too long? Episodic seasons make that even harder. They’re also not a genre thick with character depth, and the leads in this version of “I Know What You Did Last Summer” will make one long for the relative nuance of Freddie Prinze Jr.

Quote

These glimpses into the past pop up more frequently as the series progresses and, as a result, pave a more engrossing narrative path that slowly, but continually creeps closer to pulling back the curtain on the killer. Episode four, which also takes another satisfying, surprise turn, does an especially good job making the present more engaging by letting us peek into the past. If this trajectory is any indication, I Know What You Did Last Summer's second half will be better than its first.

You could go down a checklist of things that are annoying in this type of show. Convoluted storytelling that overuses the device of nonlinearity? Check. Scenes that are meant to build intrigue but in practice give so little information that they're just confusing? Check. Extreme violence and images of self-harm that will make you clutch your pearls a little bit? Check. Overly of-the-moment dialogue that will make this show age like a blue slushie left outside on a Hawaiian summer day? Check and double check.

Madison Iseman Tackles Twins in ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ (spoilery for the first four episodes)

Quote

When you eventually found out who it was, did it all click together or did it leave more questions for a potential second season?

I think a little bit of both. For me it was a shock, but then I went back and looked at it and the pieces are all there. What’s so great about it is it’s not a let-down and they’re not trying to hide it from you. If you were to sit down and analyze every single episode, you could figure it out. There’s definitely a bunch of misleads, but it’s there — it’s just hidden in the craziness of our show.

No sequel for this one: https://variety.com/2022/tv/news/i-know-what-you-did-last-summer-amazon-canceled-1235149511/

Not surprising or particularly sad, which makes me sad because I was really looking forward to it every since it was announced.  I just think, at the end of the day, this creative team didn't actually want to make an IKWYDLS series, they wanted to wrap the IP around their own idea for a series and they failed.

I feel the same. not really sad but kinda sad about it. I wonder if it would have done better if they hadn't used the IKWYDLS name. Since they really didn't live up to that formula I think calling itself that hurt more than helped. 

Other than the misleading title I think the show was trying to throw too much together. It wanted to be a murder mystery, a horror show and a supernatural cult show all in one. Personally I would have ditched the cult angle, it added little and muddied the waters IMO. 

Oh well, considering I just had to think really hard to remember what even happened on the show I don't imagine I'll miss it.

I enjoyed watching and theorizing about this train wreck while it was happening, but I'm not sad it got cancelled. It was a mess. I can only imagine how the second season would have gone. I bet Riley and Dylan would have teamed up to get revenge on Alison and Margot. I was not looking forward to watching Dylan have anything good happen to him. I'm sure the writers would have made Alison and Margot's relationship really toxic, too.

I think the horse is already out of the barn on that score.
