Friday the 13th is Getting the Series Treatment, Again

Friday the 13th is getting the series treatment (again). This time it will be an actual small screen adaptation of the series rather than a program that merely bears the Friday the 13th moniker.

The show is currently being developed at the CW network, according to Deadline. Steve Mitchell & Craig Van Sickle will be penning the series pilot for the network.

The site reports that “the program reimagines the masked Jason with a stronger feel of grounded reality.” It is being described as “a sophisticated, horror/crime thriller about about the ongoing quest of a detective’s search for his missing brother that is somehow tied to Jason Vorhees, a long thought dead serial killer who has now returned to wreak havoc in the new Crystal Lake”.

Rumors of this project originated last year with series creator Sean S. Cunningham on board to produce. To date, there have been a total of 12 Friday the 13th films (with the latest incarnation being the 2009 franchise reboot). Another reboot is reportedly in the works with a targeted release sometime in 2016.

Stay tuned to the site in the coming months for more details on the proposed series as they are announced!
