Set in the late 1980s, school is out for the summer, and a sun-drenched season of firsts beckons the counselors at Camp Clearwater, a seemingly idyllic Midwestern summer camp, including first loves, first kisses — and first kills. Clearwater's dark, ancient mythology awakens, and what was supposed to be a summer of fun soon turns into one of unforgettable scares and evil at every turn. Part coming-of-age story, part supernatural horror story, this bold series mixes genres as it examines the light and dark of a summer like no other.
The cast includes Elizabeth Mitchell ("Lost," "The Purge: Election Year"), Elizabeth Lail ("Once Upon a Time"), Zelda Williams ("Teen Wolf"), Mark Indelicato ("Ugly Betty"), Alberto Frezza ("Charlie's Angels"), Eli Goree ("The 100"), Ronen Rubinstein ("Orange Is the New Black"), Amber Coney ("Class") and Paulina Singer ("Gotham").
"Dead of Summer" is produced by ABC Signature Studios and Kitsis/Horowitz. Adam Horowitz, Edward Kitsis ("Lost," "Once Upon A Time") and Ian Goldberg ("Once Upon a Time," "Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior") write and executive-produce the series.
