Dead of Summer Hosts V Reunion: Charles Mesure Joins Freeform Thriller

Fans of the short-lived alien drama V will be treated to a mini-reunion later this year: Charles Mesure will join his onetime castmate Elizabeth Mitchell on Freeform’s upcoming Dead of Summer.

Created by Once Upon a Time bosses Adam Horowitz, Eddy Kitsis and Ian Goldberg, the 1980s-set horror-drama takes place at Camp Clearwater, a seemingly idyllic Midwestern summer camp, which quickly turns into “unforgettable scares and evil at every turn.” (TVLine’s Matt Mitovich served as an early consultant on the project.)

Per our sister site Deadline, Mesure will appear as a small-town sheriff who loves his peaceful community and is not pleased when things at the camp go awry. As previously reported, Mitchell will play Deb, Camp Clearwater’s new owner, who has a potentially dark reason for wanting control of the grounds.

Of course, Mesure and Mitchell have also both appeared on Once — he as the pirate Black Beard and she as the Frozen arc’s Snow Queen. They join a Dead of Summer cast that includes Elizabeth Lail (who played Once‘s Princess Anna), Mark Indelicato (Ugly Betty), Zelda Williams (Teen Wolf), Paulina Singer (Gotham) and Ronen Rubinstein (Orange Is the New Black).

    I was already going to watch this and now even more!!! I loved both Elizabeth and Charles on “V” as well as “OUAT”.

    Had no real interest in this other than Liz Mitch is starring in it and now I will definitely be tuning in. They had amazing chemistry in “V” and seemed to play very well off each other.
