Dead of Summer Trailer and Synopsis
Seven camp counselors plan for the best summer of their lives, but the evil lurking at Camp Stillwater has other plans in store for them in the series premiere of Dead of Summer.
Set in the late 1980s, school is out for the summer, and a sun-drenched season of firsts beckons the counselors at Camp Stillwater, a seemingly idyllic Midwestern summer camp, including first loves, first kisses—and first kills. Stillwater’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.
In the premiere episode (Patience) Camp Stillwater is about to reopen after being closed down for years. Deb, the new owner, has thrown her heart, soul and life savings into renovating the camp she loved as a child. She isn’t the only one excited to return as six former campers: Alex, Jessie, Cricket, Joel, Blair and Blotter join her as counselors hoping to experience the freedom that camp brings now that they are older. Not part of the old crew, Amy is not just new to Camp Stillwater, but to camp in general. While Amy tries her best to fit in with the already tight group, Drew is content to be left alone. As everyone settles in and prepares for the campers’ arrival, Amy is the first to get a feeling that something is not right with this idyllic summer camp.
Dead of Summer airs Tuesday, June 28th (9:00 – 10:00 p.m. EDT), on Freeform (ABC Family).
