Everything We Know So Far About Crystal Lake, Bryan Fuller’s Friday The 13th Prequel Series

“Crystal Lake” is being written by Bryan Fuller (“Hannibal,” “Pushing Daisies,” “Queer for Fear: The History of Queer Horror”), who is also serving as showrunner and an executive producer. The original film’s screenwriter, Victor Miller, will also executive produce the series, alongside Marc Toberoff, Rob Barsamian, and A24.

During the “Friday the 13th Part III” screening, Fuller announced that legendary slasher screenwriter Kevin Williamson (“Scream,” “The Faculty,” “Sick”) would be writing one of the episodes. In even more exciting news, Adrienne King, who played final girl Alice Hardy in the original film, would appear in a recurring role. As this is a prequel series, it’s likely that she’ll be playing an entirely different role than Alice, unless the series is being retold from her perspective as an adult, like the slasher version of Rose in “Titanic.”

The project is also looking at two different scores — either one that reflects the musical stylings of our current trends, or a classic one inspired by Harry Manfredini. We know which one we’d prefer (Manfredini, obviously), but knowing the option even exists is worth getting excited over.
