Dead of Summer will take a page out of Fargo's playbook should the call come in for season 2.
The Freeform series is culling the herd as its freshman finale nears, killing off everyone foolish enough to stay at Camp Stillwater. Amy pulled the wool over our eyes as a sweet suburban ingénue, but the demure teen was really a satanic killer all along. Now that the secret is out, viewers are wondering what writers have planned for a potential second season.
"We're very inspired by Fargo, the anthology. People will be connected," executive producer Eddy Kitsis told TV Line. "Season 2 would be 1970, the summer Deb was a counselor ... and there could potentially be a Season 3 set in 2004 where one of these kids - if anyone survives - is now the director."
In other words, expect this Tuesday's "She Talks to Angels" to wrap the summer of 1989 up with a bloody bow. (Except for Deb's tale. You've gotta leave a little something in the tank to propel viewers into season 2.)
"I'd say the finale wraps up the story of Season 1 and hopefully satisfies the audience in answering all of the questions we set up for this season's story, while acknowledging that there's a bigger story at play that hopefully we go to on and tell more stories from Camp Stillwater throughout the years," Adam Horowitz teased. "The approach of this series is that each series would be a different summer at the camp in a different era."
