Bloody Disgusting just shared the news on April 24, that the popular slasher series, "Friday the 13th," will be coming to the small-screen. Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films and Crystal Lake Entertainment have set a deal to produce a new hour-long series that is based on the characters and setting of "Friday the 13th."

The creator of the original "Friday the 13th," Sean S. Cunningham is reported to be the executive producer of the show. Bill Basso and Jordu Schell have been set to write for the new show, and Roy Knyrim will be coordinating the FX part of it.

According to reports, the series is taking a contemporary approach, and is going to focus on the townspeople of Crystal Lake. From what it seems like, viewers will be getting maybe a better glimpse into Jason Voorhees family, and all the deep dark secrets that surround Crystal Lake.

Cunningham had this to say about being part of creating the "Friday the 13th" TV series:

“Jason Voorhees is synonymous with the genre and we plan to build on this legacy with a provocative and compelling take that expands upon the storylines that have already thrilled millions worldwide." (Source: Deadline)

There was a late 80s TV show called, "Friday the 13th: The Series," but it had nothing to do with the movie franchise. It was about owners of an antique shop, who would find cursed antiques, and protect people by storing them away.

At the moment there is no release date of the show nor is it known what station it will be airing on.
