The horror drama ends after one season.
November 8, 2016
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.

It was a campy and fun show (albeit at times cringe worthy), but I just figured it was a one season type thing. It pretty much wrapped up at the end so I'm surprised it was cancelled. I didn't expect a season 2.

joe and ed? what the hell are you talking about? especially "joe'. It's very hard to get viewers when there's so many networks. We DON"T need a lecture about this. The show would have done better on a major network. It didn't need sex, it was aimed at a younger audience. And of course networks cancel low rated shows and sometimes high rated shows for various reasons. We needed you to go on about it? It was a good show. Freeform doesn't have many shows. This was a low budget show and t was cheap to make. So now they have to spend big bucks to do the next series. their loss.

Of course it was cancelled. Freeform, you are who we thought you were...ABC Family. I station where everyone goes when they get up on their high horses and proclaims, "We're not watching any REALISTIC TV tonight!" "No! Not in MY house will my kids watch anything realistic!" And by "Realistic" im referring to cursing, sex, etc etc. Anything broadcast on stations like this one just seems like a bland, something missing, bad copy of the real world...Langoleir with a full belly, style. No matter how much we tell ourselves, "Yeah, this is better for the kids," Our REALISTIC inner selves rise up and reject it like ipecac, BEGGING us to come to our senses and rip off our delusional, rose colored glasses. So when we finally, inevitably do, ratings slip and fall hard, and the show goes bye-bye.

Of course it was cancelled. Nobody liked it. Nobody watched it because they nobody liked it. Nobody watching it means it will get canned. Lets not be adults and realize tv is a business. If nobody watches it it won't stay on. If you are thinking to yourself "Well I watched it, therefore it should be on", you should be thinking "I watched, but most of America did not. I understand that I am in a minority. The business did not want to spend money on a product that was not preforming as well as other products could. I may not be happy with this decision but as an adult I understand that it is better that the show is off the air, and other shows have a chance to go on, instead of them keeping on the show and losing the entire network to just satisfy me."

If renewed the plan was to go back to the 70's where it had happened once before so pretty much a prequel to this story.

I couldn't take 10 minutes of the show. The acting was awful! And Freeform = ABC Family. I don't know when they made the change.

I'm not surprised. ABC family, now Freeform, has a terrible track record with the way they cancel shows. I still get annoyed about Lincoln Heights, Kyle XY, and especially with Switched at Birth.
