‘Friday The 13th’ Prequel Series Given The Green Light

November 8, 2022

Great news if you’re a horror fan! A Friday The 13th prequel series is coming soon thanks to Peacock and A24!

The series is called Crystal Lake and is described as an “expanded prequel” and will be developed by Bryan Fuller, who said, “I discovered Friday the 13th in the pages of Famous Monsters magazine when I was 10 years old and I have been thinking about this story ever since. When it comes to horror, A24 raises the bar and pushes the envelope and I’m thrilled to be exploring the camp grounds of Crystal Lake under their banner.”

The movie’s original writer, Victor Miller, will be executive produce alongside Marc Toberoff and Rob Barsamian, as well as indie studio A24.

NBC chairman of content, Susan Rovner, said, “Friday the 13th is one of the most iconic horror franchises in movie history and we were dying to revisit this story with our upcoming drama series Crystal Lake. We can’t wait to get to work with Bryan Fuller, a gifted, visionary creator who I’ve had the pleasure of being a longtime friend and collaborator, along with our incredible partners at A24, in this updated version for Peacock that will thrill long-standing fans of the franchise.”

The Friday The 13th Franchise has released 12 movies so far, going back to 1980 and again rebooted in 2009. There is no release date set yet for Crystal Lake.

Friday The 13th was the first movie to really scare the shit outta me. How ’bout you? Which movie borderline traumatized you?
