Dead of Summer - Season Finale - Post Mortem Interview

31 Aug 2016

As you guys are planning a potential season 2, what themes do you hope to explore next season?

KITSIS: The show’s theme overall is about identity. What we would like to do is if this year was inspired by — as we like to say, our show was late night cable-inspired. It’s like mom and dad are asleep, turn on cable, and you’d see movies that you don’t remember coming to the movie theater, but they stayed with you forever. That was this summer. I would say the 1970s summer will be inspired by things like Roman Polanski’s Rosemary’s Baby. It’ll be in the vibe of the late ’60s, ’70s. That could be Russ Meyer, that could be Roman Polanski. I can tell you it’s going to be the summer of 1970 and that during that winter break, those kids decided — because they all missed Woodstock, because they were at Stillwater the year before — they decided to go to Altamont. If you know anything about the Altamont in 1969, maybe they found something there that followed them back.

Has there been any word on the renewal yet?

KITSIS: No, not at all, and to be honest, we’re too tired to think about it today. Let’s just enjoy this moment together. If there’s a season 2, we’re ready for it.
