Peacock’s new series is sure to be a bloody good time.
The Friday the 13th horror franchise is getting the prequel treatment with the brand-new show Crystal Lake from A24 and writer, showrunner, executive producer and creator Bryan Fuller.
Fittingly announced by the NBCUniversal streamer on Oct. 31, details about the upcoming series are currently being kept under wraps. But based on the title, fans can expect the series to expand upon the dark history of Camp Crystal Lake, and possibly that of the masked killer Jason Voorhees.
As a longtime fan of the slasher classic, Fuller shared his excitement for the project in a press release, saying, “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.”
Susan Rovner—Chairman of Entertainment Content for NBCUniversal Television and Streaming—mirrored Fuller’s words. “Friday the 13th is one of the most iconic horror franchises in movie history,” Rovner said in a statement, “and we were dying to revisit this story with our upcoming drama series Crystal Lake.”
