Horror series are hotter than ever. Freeform (formally known as ABC Family) will soon premiere a new horror series of their own, titled Dead of Summer. The TV series is inspired by the slasher films of the 1980s, from the creators of the hit show Once Upon a Time, Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis along with writer Ian Goldberg.

Set in the late 1980s, school is out in Dead of 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.

Dead of Summer will premiere on Freeform on Tueday, June 28th at 9:00pm ET/PT.
