    Wait, that's Jack Nicholson's son?

    Try not to Panic.

    There's a new YA series on Amazon Prime that fans can't seem to get enough of. And if you're looking for a new summer binge, Panic might be your go-to choice.

    I saw an ad for Panic when I was watching something on Amazon Prime and my heart nearly stopped. Mike Faist - I’ve missed you 😍🥰

    Olivia Welch saying that Ray and Heather are the only two people who understand each other and how after what they've been through, they'd stay together for a while, IF NOT FOREVER. I just #ReadySetPanic #paniconprime

    18.

    I would really love a season 2 for Panic but if there is even a slim chance that the writers decide to break Heather and Ray up or even hurt Ray’s heart I’m going to be very angry. #PanicAMAZON #paniconprime

    Ray smiles so much when he kisses Heather and that's because he can't believe something good is happening to him for once #paniconprime #panic #ReadySetPanic
