Horror fans are super excited about the Crystal Lake, a series that will serve as a prequel to the iconic slasher film Friday the 13thIf you’re looking forward to it as much as we are, you’ve come to the right place. Below, we share everything there is to know about the upcoming series, including the Crystal Lake release date, cast, and more.

Initially, we thought Peacock was an odd choice as the home for Crystal Lake, but after the success of Chuckywe totally see it. If you want more horror while you wait for Jason Voorhees, Peacock has your back! Stream the Chucky series if you haven’t already, or rewatch the Child’s Play movies. Icon horror movies and shows are also available to stream on Peacock, including Bates Motel and Blair Witch.

Crystal Lake release date

March 28 Update: Adrienne King who plays Alice in the first two Friday the 13th movie, took to Instagram to share that she met with the producer of Crystal Lake. Among the hashtags, King included “#coming2024.” Looks like we are in for a long wait!

At this time, we do not know when Crystal Lake will premiere on Peacock as it has not yet been announced. After news surfaced that the series was in the works, updates have been few and far between. Our best guess for when we’ll see the series, is late 2023 or early 2024. We’ll be sure to update this post.

Crystal Lake cast

Peacock is really keeping us in the dark with this series! At the time of this writing, no cast announcements have been made. However, Fran Volpe is expected to return to play Jason. I’m sure we’ll also be seeing some popular faces from the Friday the 13th movie franchise.

Crystal Lake synopsis

Just like everything else, not too much is known about Crystal Lake, the synopsis hasn’t been shared. But knowing this is a prequel series, it’s not too tough to assume the series will follow a young Jason and the events that lead to his death while at Camp Crystal Lake. We’ll get to learn if Jason’s drowning was accidental or not. Who was Jason before we meet him the Friday the 13th movie?
