Why The Friday The 13th Prequel Series Is Essentially Guaranteed To Run For Two Seasons
The "Friday the 13th" prequel series "Crystal Lake" has been announced, and there are already a lot of questions that won’t be answered until later. One thing that’s certain is that "Crystal Lake" won't be a one-and-done deal, according to showrunner Bryan Fuller.
In an exclusive interview with Fangoria, Fuller shed light on his newest project, revealing that Peacock has given them "a full-season commitment with a huge penalty if we don't do a second season." However, he went on to clarify that, right now, there's only
one season in the works.
In theory, it should be easy to resurrect the world of "Friday the 13th;" however, according to Fuller, the series will be expensive. The series’ budget is estimated to be upwards of $3.75 million per episode, which suggests that Peacock and A24 are confident
in the series' success.
