For readers of this site, or simply fans of Jason Voorhees, his saga, or horror products, you will know the legal story around Friday the 13th that has blocked the franchise for years and I talked about for a long time updating you when there was news about it.


If you didn’t know anything about it, I looked into it in an article some time ago:


Then there were two important updates, one last year and one this year:


And then began the first rumors about new projects related to the saga, first with a major update from the producer Roy Lee about the arrival of new content:


Then there was the first official teaser of something actually coming:


And finally a leak about a new product coming in 2023:


And today finally arrive official confirmation of the return of the saga of Friday The 13th, in fact will arrive on Peacock a prequel TV series that will tell the origins of the franchise, will be set before the first film by Jason Voorhees.

The series will be written by Bryan Fuller, he was, among other things, producer and writer of the TV series about Hannibal, and also of Carrie, the film based on the story of Stephen King, but not only, as he also created several recent projects such as Star Trek Discovery, Dead Like Me, American Gods:

“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,” Fuller said. “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.”


The TV series will be called Crystal Lake, and will not be present the iconic killer with the hockey mask because of the legal battle that as mentioned above, you can deepen in the articles linked above.

A24 will also be part of the production, which for those who do not know who they are, are those behind the production of Euphoria by HBO.


The news that probably will please the fans is that to produce 'Crystal Lake' there will also be Victor Miller, that is the screenwriter of the first film of Friday the 13th, from which this TV series will probably connect in some way being his prequel.


In recent times, the intellectual property of the franchise has passed from Paramount to New Line, but at the same time it was at the center of a heated legal dispute that involved the director and producer of the first 'Friday the 13th' movie (ie Sean S. Cunningham) and the screenwriter of that film (Victor Miller).

In May of this year, the court agreed with Miller, stating that he owns the exploitation rights to the screenplay of 'Friday the 13th' and its characters. However, it does not have the title, the concept of Jason adult nor the hockey mask (introduced only in the third feature of the saga).These three intellectual properties are in the hands of producer Rob Barsamian. Important detail because the latter and Victor Miller, also with Marc Toberoff (Miller’s lawyer) and A24 Studio are the executive producers of the TV series 'Crystal Lake', which is born, potentially, with the ability to field all the main elements of the franchise.

''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', said Susan Rovner, chairman of entertainment content for NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. “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.”


At the moment we do not know the release date of the project and not even the plot, but I will update you when there will be news about it.


Meanwhile, are you happy with the return of Friday the 13th?
