“Welcome to Derry”: A Prequel to Pennywise to Air on Max in 2024




IT TV Series

Warner Bros. Discovery has revealed that the new series “Welcome to Derry” will serve as an official prequel to the two Andy Muschietti IT movies, which are based on Stephen King’s works. The series will debut on the Max streaming service in 2024.

The series will also feature appearances by Taylour Paige (as Zola), Jovan Adepo (as Watchmen), Chris Chalk (as Perry Mason), and James Remar (as Oppenheimer).

The Pennywise prequel project from Warner Bros. Television has Andy Muschietti, Barbara Muschietti, and Jason Fuchs on board, with Muschietti slated to direct multiple episodes.

The 2017 movie It: Part One, which is based on the Stephen King horror novel, will take place in the 1960s, according to a 2017 Variety article. Also allegedly included in the tale is Pennywise the Clown’s backstory.

The co-showrunners of the prequel series will be Jason Fuchs (Wonder Woman, Ice Age: Continental Drift) and Brad Caleb Kane (Moonhaven, Black Sails, Fringe).

Stephen King’s huge book, which was initially published in 1986, was of course first adapted into a miniseries in 1990, starring Tim Curry in the part that would subsequently be performed by Bill Skarsgrd in the films.

The story takes place in the town of Derry, Maine, where the Losers’ Club, a group of friends, fights Pennywise the deadly clown twice: first when they are children and again when they are adults, 27 years later.
