HBO Max Returning to Derry With ‘IT’ Prequel Series

It looks like Pennywise the Dancing Clown will return to our homes, as HBO Max has ordered a full series order for the prequel series based on Stephen King’s novel IT. The duo that created the latest iteration for theaters with the two IT films, Andy Muschietty and Barbara Muschietti, are on board alongside Jason Fuchs to bring the series to life.

It currently has the working title Welcome to Derry and is seemingly going to take place in the same universe as the latest adaptations, as Andy Muschietti is also set to direct multiple episodes alongside the pilot. His work on The Flash certainly made this project a must-order for HBO Max and it’ll be interesting to see how they tackle an expansion of Stephen King‘s iconic novel.

As teenagers, we took turns reading chapters of Stephen King’s IT until the thick paperback fell to pieces. IT is an epic story that contains multitudes, far beyond what we could explore in our IT movies. We can’t wait to share the depths of Steve’s novel, in all its heart, humor, humanity and horror.

Fuchs will write the pilot episode and is also set to showrun the project alongside Brad Caleb Kane. The details are scarce on how they’ll tackle this project and there’s now ord if Bill Skarsgård will return as the iconic horror clown. If it does take place in the same universe, it would make sense to see him tackle the role once more.
