NEW: A first look at  the horror series "Welcome to Derry"

Max has released a new promo video announcing their upcoming 2024/2025 year's schedule, and with it, we finally got the first look at the horror series "Welcome to Derry", which will serve as a prequel to the films "It" and "It Chapter Two" directed by Andy Muschietti. The series takes place in the 1960s and slowly moves towards the events of the first film. Although it has already been confirmed that Bill Skarsgård will not be returning as Pennywise, "Welcome to Derry" still features the famously terrifying clown as the show tackles his origin story.

Recall, that back in 1990, we enjoyed the tense scenes of the legendary Stephen King and his horror masterpiece "IT". In 2017 and 2019, we had the opportunity to watch the two sequels " IT " and " IT: Chapter 2 ", and now we have the mini-series " Welcome to Darry ".

The first installment of "IT" earned more than 700 million dollars, ranking among Hollywood's biggest financial surprises. The 1986 adaptation of King's novel ranks as the highest-grossing horror film of all time.

Andy Muschietti, who directed both films, is co-producing the series with Barbara Muschietti. The series is rumored to be set in the 1960s, approximately 27 years before the events of the first film. Jason Fuchs conceived the plot and is said to be writing the script with Meals in the aforementioned " Writers' Room ". The showrunners of the series are Fuchs (Wonder Woman, Ice Age: Continental Drift) and Brad Caleb Kane (Moonhaven, Black Sails, Fringe). We expect Jovan Adepo, Chris Chalk, Taylor Paige, James Remar, Stephen Rider and Madeleine Stowe in the main roles.

For now, we have more questions than answers, but we will have to wait a bit for more information about the "Welcome to Derry" series.
