If you are a fan of E. Lockhart’s We Were Liars (2014), this news is for you. A series adaptation is currently under development at Amazon. It will be both an amnesia thriller and a tragic love story. The series centers on the idea of repercussions for one’s actions and follows the wealthy, seemingly ideal Sinclair family as they spend each summer together on their private island off the coast of Massachusetts.
One summer, an incident happens to Cadence, which she later cannot remember. To help Cadence remember what happened to her, Johnny, Gat, and Mirren work with her two years later.

Universal Television will produce the series adaptation.
