These young camp coun­sel­lors are in for a fright­en­ing sum­mer hol­i­day. Sea­son 1 Fri­days (from 14 Oc­to­ber) Vuzu AMP (*103) 21:30

The pretty young coun­sel­lors who have been bussed into Camp Still­wa­ter in 1989 aren’t all go­ing to make it to the sea­son 1 fi­nale of Dead Of Sum­mer (2016- cur­rent). “Each episode will fo­cus on a coun­sel­lor and we will flash back to who they were be­fore they got to camp. You’ll see them lit­er­ally fac­ing their de­mons,” says co- cre­ator Ed­ward Kit­sis, who’s an ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer on fantasy se­ries Once Upon A Time (2011- cur­rent). Although not of­fi­cially re­newed for sea­son 2, Dead Of Sum­mer is planned as an an­thol­ogy se­ries (like hor­ror show Amer­i­can Hor­ror Story, 2011- cur­rent), with Ed­ward adding that “ev­ery year [sea­son] is a new year. It’s not like we’re telling ’89 over five years. This story gets done. Next year, maybe it’ll be 1970. It could be 1942 or it could be 2004…” One thing that will re­main is the main char­ac­ter: the lake. Says co- cre­ator Adam Horowitz, “The camp was es­tab­lished in the ’20s, but stuff has been go­ing on longer…”
