The Freeform network has gotten into the throwback horror genre this season, so we caught up with the folks putting together Dead of Summer to talk about what it’s like heading back to 1989.

The series is set in the summer of 1989, and is basically a throwback horror tale in the sweet spot of Camp Crystal Lake and Pretty Little Liars. We talked to the cast and crew about what led to the inspiration to set the series in the late 1980’s, and their handling of some of the different characters making up the ensemble. . 

Dead of Summer is airing right now on Freeform.
