Pennywise Is Heading To HBOMax In New Series WELCOME TO DERRY

This one has been rumored for a while but it’s exciting to be able to officially report that the IT prequel series WELCOME TO DERRY has been given a “direct to series” order by the streaming giant.

Andy Muschietti and Barbara Muschietti, who brought us the very well-received recent film adaptations of IT and IT Chapter Two will head things up for Warner Brothers. Andy Muschietti will direct multiple episodes.

Don’t have any story information just yet other than the project “will be a prequel to New Line’s It films, promising to “expand the vision” of the movies”.

Stephen King stated, “I’m excited that the story of Derry, Maine’s most haunted city, is continuing, and I’m glad Andy Muschietti is going to be overseeing the frightening festivities, along with a brain trust including his talented sister, Barbara, Red balloons all around!”

Time to float! More on this exciting project as production rolls along.
