It is being reported that Dead of Summer has been cancelled after its first season at Freeform. From the creators of ABC's Once Upon a Time, the freshman 80's-set drama followed an awakened dark mythology that terrorizes a summer camp.

The series premiered in June for a 10-episode run that ultimately garnered subpar reviews and failed to draw significant viewership. Today's cancellation is the latest in string of Freeform dramas to only last one season. Recovery Road and Guilt were both cancelled earlier this year.
