The planned I Know What You Did Last Summer TV reboot is officially going ahead at Amazon Prime Video.
First reported last year, the "modern take" on the 1997 horror movie – which is also based off the 1973 novel by Lois Duncan – has now been given a full series order.
"In a town full of secrets, a group of teenagers are stalked by a mysterious killer a year after a fatal accident on their graduation night," the description reads.
Aquaman's James Wan was originally reported to be directing the show's pilot, and he will take on an executive producer role for the series.
Preacher's Sara Goodman will write and also executive produce the show, with the latter role being shared with Wan, Shay Hatten, Original Film's Moritz and Pavun Shetty, Erik Feig, Rob Hackett and Michael Clear.
"The best horror franchises always have another scare coming, and this I Know What You Did Last Summer series from Sara Goodman is a perfectly twisted update to the iconic slasher movie," said Albert Cheng, COO and co-head of Television at Amazon Studios.
"Any way you slice it, our global Prime Video customers will love this modern take on the fan favorite film."
"We are thrilled to have I Know What You Did Last Summer with our incredible partners at Amazon Studios," added Jason Clodfelter, co-president of Sony Pictures Television Studios.
"Neal Moritz and Original Films' development consistently fires on all cylinders and that is proven once again with Sara Goodman’s contemporary and pulsating character weaving suspense thriller."
The original I Know What You Did Last Summer movie starred Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Freddie Prinze Jr and Ryan Phillippe.
