It was recently announced that we will not only see Mrs. Voorhees in the new Friday the 13th movie, but also Jason's father, Elias Voorhees. This got me thinking about Jason's surprisingly extensive family, and which other family members we might see in the 2017 reboot.

1. Pamela Voorhees

Relation to Jason: Mother

First appearance: Friday the 13th (1980)

2. Elias Voorhees

Relation to Jason: Father

First appearance: Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives (Novel, 1986)

3. Diana Kimble

Relation to Jason: Half Sister

First appearance: Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday (1993)

4. Jessica Kimble

Relation to Jason: Niece

First appearance: Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday (1993)

5. Steven Freeman

Relation to Jason: Nephew-in-law

First appearance: Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday (1993)

6. Stephanie Kimble

Relation to Jason: Great-Niece

First appearance: Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday (1993) (pictured above in Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash: The Nightmare Warriors (2008), a comic book from Wildstorm).

7. Free Jefferson

Relation to Jason: Son

First appearance: Jason X: To The Third Power (Novel, 2006)

Now, although Jason's Son, Free Jefferson, only appears in one novel, the possibility of Jason's continued bloodline is an exciting prospect for the new Friday the 13th movie. Jason's actual blood and its apparently mystical properties has been used as a plot line in previous movies and it'd be interesting to see what extending Jason's family tree could do for the franchise. The new Friday the 13th is due out January 2017 — on Friday the 13th.

What would you like to see from Jason's family in future Friday the 13th movies?
