What is the reboot series about?
The Amazon Prime Video series will follow the same premise as the 1997 slasher film. The movie adaptation starred Jennifer Love Hewitt, Freddie Prinze Jr., Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Ryan Phillippe. While driving home from a party, four teenage friends accidentally hit a pedestrian on the road. The group makes a pact to never speak of the incident again.
One year later, they receive a letter that reads, “I know what you did last summer.” Soon, the teenagers are stalked by a masked killer.

The film spawned two sequels, I Still Know What You Did Last Summer (1998), and I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer (2006).
According to TVLine, the reboot series follows a new group of teenagers getting stalked by a killer. The official synopsis reads: “One year after the fatal car accident that haunted their graduation night, a group of teenagers finds themselves bound together by a dark secret and stalked by a brutal killer.
