Friday the 13th TV series to return! This time with Jason!

Well this is out of left field news, but has the potential to be awesome! It appears that Friday the 13th is heading back to the small screen. For a brief period the original show ran on TV, but never featured Jason Voorhees. It went the Tales From The Crypt route and was just a weird supernatural themed story every week. But this time we will be following around the Camp Crystal Lake killer on his wacky adventures.

Here's hoping it's on the proper network. If it's on a network TV station you can pretty much just bail on this now. But if something like FX, AMC, or even HBO pick it up then we should be in for a great time. Of course people are already complaining about this but listen, Jason went to space. That is about as weird as it can get.

Not a single one of the Friday the 13th films has been viewed by fans for their stories. It's just about Jason taking care of business. Done. So it should be interesting to see what they do for a TV series. Sean S. Cunningham, who was the director of the very first Friday the 13th, is also attached to executive produce the new series, here is what he has to say...

"Jason Voorhees is synonymous with the genre,
and we plan to build on this legacy with a provocative and compelling take that expands upon the storylines that have already thrilled millions worldwide."

"Expect the show to take viewers in some exciting new directions that we're confident will not only excite existing fans of 'Friday The 13th' but also attract new audiences to the situations and characters that inhabit the small town of Crystal Lake,"

Perfect. I'm in! Are you?
