Is Jason Vorhees Coming To TV?


It appears that the Friday the 13th franchise is getting more than just a a new movie.  It sounds like we'll soon be seeing a Bates Motel-esque hour long drama.

According to Deadline, the show will be reimagining Jason in a variety of different time periods.  I have no idea what this means.  I can't imagine they'll be having a time traveling Jason Vorhees bouncing around the history of Crystal Lake.  I'd be more inclined to think it'll focus on the Vorhees family as a whole.  Which sounds much more like a Texas Chainsaw Massacre scenario.

Deadline describes the show as follows, "the series is contemporary, focusing on the eclectic characters of Crystal Lake who are forced to confront the return of the killer, as new secrets about his wacky family are revealed."

Series creator Sean Cunningham will be involved as well.

I just don't know how to feel about this.  I'm weary for sure.  Really weary.  They won't be able to top the original Friday the 13th: The Series anyway.
