Horror Series from Once Upon a Time Creators Coming to ABC Family

Get scoop on the creepy new drama

Sadie Gennis

ABC Family has given a series order to Dead of Summer, a horror anthology series from Once Upon a Time creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis with writer Ian Goldberg, the network announced Wednesday.

Dead of Summer follows the lives of summer camp counselors in the late '80s as they experience their "first loves, first kisses - and first kills," the press release teases. "Part coming-of-age story, part supernatural horror story, Dead of Summer is a bold, new series that mixes genres as it examines the light and dark of a summer like no other."

Dead of Summer will premiere on the network in 2016, after ABC Family officially changes its name to Freeform.
