Adrienne King: ‘Crystal Lake’ Prequel Is “Worth The Wait”

by Thomas Tuna

You might need a bigger boat, lady.

Adrienne King–who famously played Final Girl Alice Hardy in the 1980 horror classic Friday the 13th–will return to her roots in the upcoming Crystal Lake Peacock series that will serve as a prequel to the original slasher.

The show does not yet have a debut date, but the actor recently took to Facebook to express her enthusiasm over the project. Check out the post and photo on this page in which King says she’s “excited to be going back to Crystal Lake. There’s so much I wish I could share, but you’ll just have to be patient. So worth the wait!”

What is known about the series is that Bryan Fuller (Hannibal) is the showrunner and executive producer, working with Victor Miller (who wrote the script for Friday the 13th), Marc Toberoff and Rob Barsamian as co-executive producers.

Fuller also announced that Kevin Williamson (of Scream fame) would write an episode, and that he has pitched four seasons to Peacock, with only the first officially ordered at this time.

As all horror fans know, the original Friday the 13th–directed by Sean S. Cunningham–follows a group of teenage camp counselors who are murdered one-by-one by an unknown killer while trying to reopen an abandoned summer camp on Crystal Lake. The box office smash raked in nearly $60 million worldwide on a budget of just $550,000.
