2021 is officially the year of the reboot. I Know What You Did Last Summer, Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television's latest release, is another nod to our infatuation with the 1990s, and it gives us another opportunity to feel nostalgic.
Just in time for Halloween, the streaming service will delight a new generation of horror enthusiasts with a modern retelling of the 1997 film. The stakes are high, the tension is palpable and no one seems to be telling the truth.
After a serious case of déjà vu—He's All That on Netflix, the Gossip Girl reboot on HBO Max—it's only fitting that we breathe new life into an old-school scary story. It's time to ring in the spooky season accordingly, folks.

'I Know What You Did Last Summer' plot
Taking cues from the late '90s flick and the 1973 novel by Lois Duncan, Sara Goodman wrote and executive produced I Know What You Did Last Summer 2021. She's the brains behind the original Gossip Girl, so young fans will be in good hands.
There's a modern, Gen Z take on the story, but the premise remains the same: teens cannot forget the tragic car accident that took place the night of their graduation. They're all connected by a secret from that evening, and even being followed by a killer. But as each member of the group tries to uncover what's going on, it appears no one is trustworthy.
