Siren – Freeform’s Next Attempt at Horror Drama.
Does anyone actually remember 2016’s series, Dead of Summer? It was Freeform Channel’s first attempt at an original horror drama, and its premise promised a nostalgic romp in the woods when camp counselors start getting butchered shortly after opening the camp’s cabins for the first time in a decade. It premiered to decent ratings and modest reviews from critics, before dying a slow and painful death while next to no one watched. Needless to say, Dead of Summer was not renewed for a second season. Here’s hoping that Siren does a little better.
Siren is the new horror drama coming to Freeform Channel with a ten episode season scheduled to hit television airwaves on March 29, 2018. Written and produced by Eric Wald and Dean White with Emily Whitesell, Brad Luff, Nate Hooper, RD Robb, and Holly Brix, Siren looks pretty good because, well, don’t we all just love killer mermaids? Think of a cross between Kyle XY and Nymph. The upcoming aquatic adventure stars Eline Powell, Alex Roe, Ian Verdun, Rena Owen, Fola Evans-Akingbola, Sibongile Mlambo and Chad Rook.
