The first trailer for the new I Know What You Did Last Summer series has been released. The reboot of the hit '90s slasher movie hits Amazon Prime Video on October 15.

The trailer is short but sets up the show's basic plot. A group of teenagers are attending a wild, lavish graduation party that is filled with the sort of things you'd expect--sex, drugs, booze, and rivalries. Later that night there is a fatal accident on the highway, and the kids cover up their crime. But of course, someone knows about it and a year later, sinister text messages start arriving. The trailer has a modern, hand-held feel more reminiscent of shows like Euphoria than the glossy vibes of the original movie, and with any luck, it'll deliver the chills and gore as well as the teen angst. Check it out below:

The first four episodes of I Know What You Did Last Summer hit Prime Video on October 15, with subsequent episodes releasing weekly. It will run until November 12. The show stars Madison Iseman (Annabelle Comes Home), Bill Heck (The Ballad of Buster Scruggs), Brianne Tju (47 Meters Down: Uncaged), Ashley Moore (Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping), Fiona Rene (Underwater), and Brooke Bloom (Homecoming). The first episode is written by Shay Hatton (Army of the Dead), and James Wan is one of the producers.

The first I Know What You Did Last Summer movie was adapted from the novel of the same title by Lois Duncan and was released in 1997. It was a big box office success and was followed by two sequels--I Still Know What You Did Last Summer in 1998 and I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer in 2006.

I Know What You Did Last Summer isn't the only '90s slasher property returning to screens in the next few months. The latest Scream movie--titled Scream--hits theaters in January.
