Amazon will kick off summer with a new YA series, Panic, on Memorial Day weekend.
The hour-long drama series is based on the bestselling book of the same name. Author Lauren Oliver serves as creator and writer for the TV adaptation.
The first season will drop all 10 episodes on Friday, May 28. The Prime Video exclusive premiere will hit more than 240 countries and territories worldwide.
Here’s the official description from Amazon:
Panic takes place in a small Texas town. Every summer the graduating seniors compete in a series of challenges – winner takes all – which they believe is their one and only chance to escape their circumstances and make their lives better. But this year, the rules have changed — the pot of money is larger than ever and the game has become even more dangerous. The players will come face to face with their deepest, darkest fears and be forced to decide how much they are willing to risk in order to win.
The cast of Panic series regulars includes: Olivia Welch as Heather Nill; Mike Faist as Dodge Mason; Jessica Sula as Natalie Williams; Camron Jones as Bishop Mason; Ray Nicholson as Ray Hall; and Enrique Murciano as Sheriff Cortez.
And if you’re a fan of Oliver’s original book, you can get an updated release featuring the Prime series cover art.
Panic season 1 premieres May 28th, only on Amazon Prime.
