Series information and plot
A brand new American horror period drama Dead of Summer has debuted on Freeform on June 28, 2016. Edward Kitsis, Adam Horowitz and Ian Goldberg are the series` creators and executive producers, alongside Steve Pearlman. The show was filmed in the forests of British Columbia, Canada.
The storyline of the eight-episode freshman season has at its heart the events at a Midwestern summer camp in 1989. First time and experienced teenage campers along with camp counselors arrive at Camp Still water and find the janitor dead. Following the discovery they encounter ghosts, are threatened by supernatural entities, as they remain at the camp site and deal with the variety of events that ensues. First loves, first kisses and… first kills await the unsuspecting campers.
Ratings, reviews and chances of renewal
The series has received mixed to average reviews from viewers on review aggregator websites, with 54% on Rotten Tomatoes, 39% on Metacritic and 6.1/10 on IMDb. It is mostly based on the archetypal clichés of summer horror, but puts a refreshing spin on them, with good chemistry between the cast members and not-so-obvious motivations behind the actions that are taken. The characters, however, have been criticized for being flat and uninspiring, the storyline for being way too predictable and clunky and the scares for not being quite spooky enough. There have been no announcements yet as to the future of Dead of Summer, so please stay with us and we`ll keep you informed.
