HBO Max has announced an IT series titled WELCOME TO DERRY. This is a prequel to the New Line global blockbuster “IT” film by Andy Muschietti. He will direct multiple series episodes, including the first one. The upcoming series is set in the world of Stephen King’s “IT” universe and based on King’s “IT” novel. The series will expand the vision established by Muschietti in the “IT” and “IT Chapter Two.” Muschietti said, “As teenagers, we took turns reading chapters of ‘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.” Read our IT: Chapter 2 Movie Review.

Stephen King says…

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