The new Friday the 13th
adaptation, said to be a television series, will focus on
the "city" of Crystal Lake which was inspired by Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco - located in Blairstown, New Jersey. The CW has been eyeing the series and is reportedly thinking about picking it up for their thriving network. Friday the 13th
creator Sean S. Cunningham is set to executive produce the series which has been respectively titled Friday the 13th: Crystal Lake Chronicles
At the Monster Mania convention this past weekend, Cunningham confirmed the CW's interest in the series and also stated that the show would not only focus on the city of Crystal Lake, but also the effects Jason's rampages had on the town. Sound's like the "horror" version of Smallville
. Reportedly. the series will not be a spin-off attempt and will instead dig up the horrific events that occurred at Crystal Lake.
The CW has recently gained a ton of success with shows such as The 100
, Arrow, The Flash
and The Originals
. The possible addition of Friday the 13th: Crystal Lake Chronicles
could be what's needed to round out the channel. The network is proving to be one that provides a mixture of supernatural elements, dystopia themes and the ever-popular superhero genre. Will Friday The 13th
be picked up by The CW? Only time will tell!
