After that, the streamer will release teen horror drama series “I Know What You Did Last Summer” and “Maradona: Blessed Dream”, a special series based on the life of legendary football player Diego Maradona. Dev Patel-starrer “The Green Knight” will be the last entry from the streamer during the festive season.
