The origin of Jason Voorhees is getting the TV treatment.

Prequel series or films revealing the origin of some of culture's most beloved characters have become all the rage in Hollywood, and the 'Friday The 13th' movies are the latest to get a prequel story.

'Crystal Lake' has been given a full series order at the streaming service Peacock, in collaboration with the distributor A24.

Variety report that Bryan Fuller, known for the idiosyncratic cult classics 'Hannibal' and 'Pushing Daisies', will serve as showrunner on the series.

Fuller said "I discovered ‘Friday the 13th’ in the pages of Famous Monsters magazine when I was 10 years old and I have been thinking about this story ever since."

"When it comes to horror, A24 raises the bar and pushes the envelope and I’m thrilled to be exploring the camp grounds of Crystal Lake under their banner."

The 'Friday The 13th' series has been in legal limbo over the last decade, with a long-running dispute over ownership rights putting paid to any further installments in the series.

A court ruled in 2021 that the series rights were the property of original screenwriter Victor Miller, and this allowed a new entry in the series to progress.

Jason was last seen on our screens in 2009, but with the success of the recent 'Halloween' movies, it was only a matter of time before Hollywood attempted to revive their famous movie boogiemen.

The 'Friday The 13th' movies started all the way back in 1980, with the original film (starring a young Kevin Bacon) becoming a major box office hit, and the series introduced the iconic killer Jason Voorhees with the 2nd film in the franchise.

The 'Friday' movies has seen Jason go everywhere from the streets of New York, face off against Freddy Krueger, and even went to outer space, but this series looks to explore the series' roots at the fictional Crystal Lake in New Jersey.

No word as of yet on a release date for our return to Crystal Lake, but we can expect plenty of Jason goodness sometime in 2024.
