Amazon Sets Premiere Date for Panic


The first season of Panic is set to launch on Amazon Prime Video in its entirety on May 28.

A one-hour drama series, written and created by Lauren Oliver based on her best-selling novel, Panic takes place in a small Texas town where every summer sees the graduating seniors compete in a series of challenges. The winner takes all for what they believe is their only chance to escape to better lives. This year, however, the rules have changed, the pot of money is larger than ever and the game has become more dangerous. The Amazon original series will premiere on Amazon Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories.

Panic is created, written by and executive produced by Oliver and executive produced by Joe Roth, Jeff Kirschenbaum and Adam Schroeder. Lynley Bird and Alyssa Altman serve as co-executive producers. Panic is produced by Amazon Studios. Series regulars include Olivia Welch, Mike Faist, Jessica Sula, Camron Jones, Ray Nicholson and Enrique Murciano.
