I Know What You Did Last Summer is confirmed for 2025, as a bunch of horror release dates are also revealed.

Sony has announced that I Know What You Did Last Summer will be releasing in the summer of next year. We’ve known for over a year now that this project is happening, with reports all the way back in February of last year suggesting that a sixth instalment of the popular 90s slasher franchise was on the way… and that it would feature a couple of the stars from the 1997 original.

The first film in the series was written by Kevin Williamson, the mind behind 1996’s Scream, and those two films launched a new wave of late 90s slasher horror. 1997’s I Know What You Did Last Summer was responsible for also launching (or furthering) the career of several teenage stars, with Jennifer Love Hewitt, Freddie Prinze Jr, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Ryan Phillippe all appearing in the film. The first two names in that ensemble are expected to return for the new film.

It looks as though this new project is doing that titling thing that horror movie legacy sequels sometimes do by assuming the original film’s name. Or at least, we’re assuming that’s what’s happening until we hear otherwise. It’s a strategy that certainly worked well for 2022’s Scream, although boxset fans may struggle to sleep at night given that the series’ titling history looks like it’s been compiled by somebody who can’t count.

The original 1997 film followed a group of teenagers targeted by a hook-wielding killer who allegedly knows that they covered up a car accident that they think killed a man. Where the new film will go is anybody’s guess but we’ll bet there’ll be a hook or two involved. The new projects will be the fourth film in the series following the original, 1998’s I Still Know What You Did Last Summer and 2006’s I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer. Upon reflection, I’ll Definitely Absolutely Always Know What You Did Last Summer might be overkill, so perhaps a return to the original titling is for the best.

The film is set to release on July 18th 2025, as reported by Deadline.

Not to be outdone, Universal’s Blumhouse horror studio has announced a raft of release dates for 2025: The Woman In The Yard is set to open on 28th March 2025, with Drop debuting on 11th April 2025.

Five Nights at Freddy’s 2 arrives on 5th December 2025. Blumhouse’s The Black Phone 2 will shift to 17th October 2025, with M3GAN 2.0 moving to June 2025.

We’ll bring you more on these projects as we hear it.
