Slasher fans rejoiced when it was announced that A24 would be partnering with Peacock and Bryan Fuller to bring us a Friday the 13th prequel series.

Entitled Crystal Lake, the show was said to focus on Jason Voorhees’ mother Pamela, and nefarious goings-on around the titular town. Not much was known after several months of development, but original Friday the 13th star Adrienne King was attached to an undisclosed role. Last we heard; Scream creator Kevin Williamson was working on the script for at least one episode.

However, now Crystal Lake appears to be in serious trouble, with conflicting announcements as to its status.

Initially multiple sources reported that A24 had “pulled the plug” on the project, with journalist Jeff Sneider commenting:
“It’s unclear whether this is a permanent decision or a temporary one, as A24 had no comment. Perhaps Peacock will help the trades shed more light on this project, which was announced back in 2022.”

With this news quickly spreading throughout the community, fan outrage began to grow, given the complicated legal history the Friday series has endured. Crystal Lake was immediately written off as another failed attempt to get the series back on screens after 15 years away.

However, some digging had several sources next reporting directly from studio executives that Crystal Lake was still very much happening.

So, is this the case? If so, where did the rumour of the project’s abandonment come from? With the lack of an official announcement, we have no definitive answer.

However, we’ll be on the lookout for one and will be here to bring you the next update in the Crystal Lake saga. Stay tuned!
