FRIDAY THE 13TH Prequel Series Showrunner Confirms CRYSTAL LAKE Can Use Jason... WITH His Hockey Mask

We recently reported that a new Friday the 13th prequel series is in the works for Peacock, and showrunner Bryan Fuller has now clarified some details from the initial announcement...

On Halloween night, it was announced that a new Friday the 13th TV series is in the works for Peacock, with Bryan Fuller on board as writer, executive producer and showrunner.

It seemed like great news for horror hounds who have been waiting for something to be done with the classic horror franchise for many years now, but the news that Crystal Lake would be a prequel series dampened excitement somewhat - as did a caveat that the show couldn't even feature an adult Jason Vorhees or his signature hockey mask.

Fortunately, it seems that part of the report was inaccurate.

Speaking to Fangoria, Fuller confirmed that they can basically utilize anything available to them "under the Friday the 13th umbrella."

“A24 and Marc Toberoff, who is Victor Miller’s lawyer, have beautifully and excruciatingly assembled all of the Friday the 13th rights. As a streaming series, we have the rights to do everything underneath the Friday the 13th umbrella.” Fuller confirmed.

“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, but as far as us chickens in the television industry, uh, roost, we have access to anything and everything that Friday the 13th has done up until this point.”

Interestingly, Fuller also describes the show as a "pre-remake-uel series," though he declined to elaborate.

We're still not sure what to expect from Crystal Lake (a bunch of camp counsellors ignoring a young Jason until he drowns and his mother plots her revenge?), but at least we know that they can build towards the unstoppable masked maniac getting axey with a bunch of teens after paying a visit to his favourite sporting goods store.

Fuller will also serve as showrunner and executive producer. Victor Miller, who wrote the first movie, will executive produce along with Marc Toberoff, Rob Barsamian, and A24.
