The following timeline details the events of the A Nightmare on Elm Street film series in chronological order. In the 2009 comic book "Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash: The Nightmare Warriors", Agent Wesley Carter travels back in time. In 1964, then, he signs Freddy Krueger's warrant which has not been done in the timeline established in the movies. This was one reason why Krueger was released from prison and killed by the parents of Elm Street. This event in the comic therefore alters the entire A Nightmare on Elm Street history as we know it. Unfortunately, there is no further information by the authors of the comic about this topic.

Note: According to Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday and Freddy vs. Jason (film), the A Nightmare on Elm Street film series and the Friday the 13th film series are a part of the same story.
