Friday the 13th fans who have been waiting years for new content are being rewarded with an especially sweet Halloween treat today, as the streaming service Peacock has announced a straight-to-series order for Crystal Lake, a new Friday the 13th expanded prequel series from A24 and Bryan Fuller (NBC’s Hannibal), who will be a writer, showrunner, and executive producer on the series.
A24, Marc Toberoff, Victor Miller and Rob Barsamian will also be executive producers on the Crystal Lake series.
Here’s what Bryan Fuller had to say about his involvement in the Friday the 13th prequel series:
“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 honor to be working with her again.”
Susan Rovner, Chairman of Entertainment Content, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming, also shared her excitement for Crystal Lake:
“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.”
Plot details and a premiere date for Crystal Lake have yet to be revealed, but we’ll keep Daily Dead readers updated as more information is announced!
