Friday The 13th Is Back! A24 And Bryan Fuller Bring Prequel Series ‘Crystal Lake’ To Peacock

It has been a great long while since we have been able to report on anything remotely solid in terms of a new project, but today is a day that has been long overdue. Recently, we learned that news of a big announcement was forthcoming and in recent days we have been teasing the announcement on social media. Today our teases can be revealed as it was confirmed that the new project is going to be a television show! Now we can proudly report that a brand new series is being ordered to series at Peacock titled Crystal Lake.

From Variety
Exact plot details are being kept under wraps, although it is described as an “expanded prequel.” The show will be written by Bryan Fuller, who is also the showrunner and an executive producer. Victor Miller, who penned the original film in the franchise, will also executive produce along with Marc Toberoff, Rob Barsamian, and A24. A24 will also serve as the studio behind the series.

It has been confirmed that elements from outside of the original Friday The 13th films can be used to craft the story of the new show Crystal Lake. This is extremely exciting for all Friday The 13th fans as expanding the story of Pamela and Jason Voorhees has long been desired by a large section of the fan base, and if this series is successful, we can hope to see new films on the horizon. In fact, we are told that this is just the tip of the iceberg, and a number of projects are upcoming for Jason and Friday The 13th!

What do you all think? This is the first legitimate project in a great long while. This is definitely something to be excited about as there is no longer rights issues between any party that will derail this project. Stay tuned for upcoming updates.
