Peacock has announced a television series prequel to Friday the 13th. The series, to be titled Crystal Lake, will come from writer Bryan Fuller and A24.
After a longtime battle for the rights of the series, Fuller has revealed which characters and settings he can use in the upcoming show. In an interview with Fangoria, Fuller said, “Everything. We can use everything. We can go to hell, we can go to space. That’s not to say that we will do those things.”
“As a streaming series, we have the rights to do everything underneath the Friday the 13th umbrella,” Fuller continued, “The movie rights are a completely different thing. They are tied up at New Line and are super, super messy and probably won’t be untangled anytime soon.”
Susan Rovner, Chairman of Entertainment Content for NBCUniversal and Streaming said in a statement, “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.”
Bryan Fuller 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. And Susan Rovner is simply the best at what she does. It’s a pleasure and an honour to be working with her again.”
The cast of the show and details regarding the plot have yet to be revealed.
