CW's "Friday the 13th" TV Series Cancelled?

20 April 2016 9:34 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Last year came word that The CW network had picked up a new "Friday the 13th" TV series which "The Pretender" creators Steven Long Mitchell and Craig W. Van Sickle would pen.

That series would follow a detective who has been searching for his missing brother, a disappearance believed to tie into the re-emergence of Jason Voorhees,who was long thought to be dead but is know wreaking havoc once again in Crystal Lake.

Now a new report at Bloody-Disgusting claims The CW has halted plans to resurrect Jason Voorhees. They say the network wasn't onboard with that idea:

"So what happened? According to my source, the network didn't jibe with the concept for the series. What was the concept? Apparently, that's the problem. After months of development, there was still no real concept for the series, causing network execs to re-think bringing Friday the 13th (back) to the small screen. »

Friday the 13th TV Series Canceled at The CW?

20 April 2016 2:28 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in August 2015, we reported that The CW Network has picked up a new Friday the 13th TV series, with The Pretender creators Steven Long Mitchell and Craig W. Van Sickle coming aboard to write the pilot script.

We first reported on the series back in 2014, when Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films and Crystal Lake Entertainment signed on to develop the series, with special effects artists Bill Basso (Terminator 2: Judgment Day) and Jordu Schell (Avatar) coming aboard to write the script. That incarnation of the show was said to feature Jason Voorhees through multiple time periods. When Steven Long Mitchell and »

10 TV Shows That Should Have Quit While They Were Ahead

9 February 2016 1:38 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


Last June I wrote an article detailing television shows that lost it by the end: the ones that fell at the final hurdle. As a companion piece, I’ve chosen to examine television shows that fell long before that: long running television series that had a shelf life, which expired some time before they actually ended.

These are television shows where the high concept didn’t warrant the lifespan that they ended up with: shows that outlived their premise and didn’t have any different stories to tell, or shows that played their hand too early and had no cards left up their sleeves.

Whether flawed from conception, poorly plotted and paced, badly executed, or just a great show with a definitive shelf life, these are the television shows that definitely outstayed their welcome.
