‘Lost’ Alum Joins Freeform’s ‘Dead of Summer’
Mystery island is going to seem like a round of capture the flag for Elizabeth Mitchell when she starts her new gig.
The Lost vet has joined Freeform‘s upcoming Dead of Summer, a horror drama set at a late-’80s summer camp where supernatural scares and a murderous mythology develop faster than the pubescent campers. Mitchell will stars as Deb, the owner of Camp Clearwater (hello, nod to Friday the 13th‘s Crystal Lake) who may have a darker reason for running the place than anyone realizes.
In a fun bit of casting mojo, Mitchell—recently seen as Once Upon a Time‘s Snow Queen—is being joined on Dead by OUAT‘s former Anna, Elizabeth Lail, who has signed on to play Amy, one of Clearwater’s newest counselors. The Elizabeths join previously announced cast members Zelda Williams (Teen Wolf), Mark Indelicato (Ugly Betty), Alberto Frezza (Charlie’s Angels), Eli Goree (The 100), Ronen Rubinstein (Orange Is the New Black) and Paulina Singer (Gotham).
Given the show’s theme, however, we’re already wondering how many of these people will make to the end of this Summer alive.
