For fans of the horror classic, you’ll get to relive the gore and blood on a weekly basis, as Friday the 13th will be moving to an unknown as-of-yet network. Though it’s a TV show, and the series has been rebooted to varying degrees of success, the new effort will still maintain some of the DNA of the original, well-regarded iteration.

The director of the 1980 original will be the executive producer, and the premise supposedly will have Jason in different eras, chopping people up and whatnot, which means he’ll either be a time-traveler (totally lame) or it will be an anthology (less totally lame).

The president of Horror, Inc. Robert Barsamian, another producer, offered up this gibberish non-information about the project:

“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.”

He used “excite” twice in the same sentence.

Whatever. If My Bloody Valentine can release their first record since 1993 in 2013 and pretend like no time passed in between, then I suppose the 2013 world is right where it needs to be to bring the Generation X (ugh) saga to the small screen.

Deadline‘s stating that the show will still take place in the 1990′s universe, presumably with new characters, or possibly with Steve Zahn and a lot of makeup, rather than picking up on the gang of Houston slackers 20 years later in 2013.

The show will be launched by several producers of the original film, and will presumably take a nostalgic look at the 90′s in much the same way that the 1990′s film character took a nostalgic look at The Brady Bunch. I suppose if the new TV show characters can break the fourth wall and comment on their disgust for the their own show and the concept of turning something that intended to capture the zeitgeist into Buzzfeed fodder it could be a pretty meta commentary and subtextual undertaking.

Otherwise, what the fuck is the point of this show?
