“I'm one of the biggest fans of the original, so to all my fellow OG fans, there was so much care and caution when it came to creating this show. Hopefully it will be just as iconic and fun and enticing ... as the original, except a hell of a lot darker.”

“We worked so hard on this show to pay our respects and truly honor such a beloved show. I just hope people feel connected to it — to some character, to some story, and if that's the case then our job’s done.”

“We really do embrace the horror in this show and we actually pay a lot of respect to older shows and movies — there [are] so many references, so if you're a movie buff or if you want to brush up on your slashers, you might see a couple nods to them in this show.”
