With “Crystal Lake,” a planned prequel series from A24, Peacock, and Bryan Fuller (“Hannibal”) that miraculously manages to use any and all current components from the film, the Friday the 13th franchise is finally getting ready to return to the big screen after 14 years.
Peacock has given the project a straight-to-series order, with “Crystal Lake” being described as an “expanded prequel” to the original Friday the 13th franchise.
Variety had detailed, “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.”
No other details were immediately forthcoming, but Fuller has reportedly pitched four seasons of Crystal Lake, with only the first officially ordered at this time.
