As we told you last week, Liz will be in Dead of Summer‘s finale which airs now on Freeform. These are two small interviews with her about the show.
This is about the finale.
Will there be a second season of Dead of Summer? (If so, how!?) — Steff
The show hasn’t officially been renewed yet, but as the EPs recently teased to me, season 2 would take place in 1970, when Deb was at camp. Also, don’t assume that everyone will die in the finale. “It’s just bonkers,” Elizabeth Mitchell teases of the season ender. “It’s a big reunion. We’re all together. I can say that. Not everybody is dead.” So we could see those survivors again should the show continue.
This is about 1×09.
So does this mean Deb is not evil on Dead of Summer? — Kara
Tuesday’s episode certainly made it seem as though Deb is on the side of good, but just you wait. “In the second-to-last episode, we get the inkling that she knows more than she’s letting herself know or that she’s letting on,” Elizabeth Mitchell says. “We get this idea that there is something more to Deb than just this sweet woman who is trying to change her life again. It starts to look that maybe she might possibly be who she says she is, but then in 109, maybe she’s not.”
1x09 - 1x10 - Dead of Summer - Deb Carpenter - Elizabeth Mitchell - Interview
UPDATE: We added another interview with the creators at the very bottom of the post.
For those who haven’t watched 1×09 yet: SPOILER ALERT.
This is the part about Deb from an interview with Adam and Eddy. They said that season 2 is set in 1970 where Deb (the younger one we saw in 1×06) was a counselor. They said they are inspired by Fargo. That show has a different cast in season 2.
We think Dead of Summer started to get you invested into these characters and then in the end they just killed them off the same way a horror movie does. All the deaths in this show were kind of rush, Deb’s death was even worse. Again her death was too violent, and she should have never left the bus. Episode 6 about her was the best one, the story was beautiful. “The Dharma Bum” didn’t really feel like a horror movie, but we guess we need to take the show like that so the finale would be just like a typical horror film. It’s also sad that we had to see a bad Keith. Their love story was amazing.
Anyway this is the interview:

If you haven’t watched 1×09 do NOT read this!
We already knew it about Deb, so it wasn’t actually a shock. We got more that 5 weeks to accept it, but it was devastating anyway. 🙁 So violent on our sweet sweet Deb! 🙁
It was hard to keep this secret, but our mouths have been sealed the whole time. So proud!
We can tell you that Elizabeth should be also in the last episode of the show. 😉
There’s no much of Liz in the promo, but anyway here it is:
SPOILERS | This is just a reminder: KILLING ELIZABETH MITCHELL’S CHARACTERS IS ILLEGAL. This is the 3rd time with these guys. è_é (Rip Juliet, Rip Ingrid, Rip Deb)

There’s a new promo of Dead of Summer. There’s not much on Liz (only the scene in the wood with Joel from 1×05 and the new scene in the bus from the upcoming episode), but anyway you can watch the video below. Oh it contains spoilers because of a few never before seen scenes about other characters.
