Welcome to Derry, the It prequel series will indeed air on HBO Max.
Lovers of Stephen King’s renowned horror book It will be overjoyed to learn that HBO Max will be airing a new live-action rendition of it. An original television project based on the cherished book has been handed a straight-to-series order by the streaming service. This prequel to New Line’s It movies, which will be titled Welcome to Derry, is being made by Warner Bros. Television.
It was revealed by HBO Max on Wednesday night that producers Andy Muschietti and Barbara Muschietti, who were responsible for the well-received big-screen versions of It and It: Chapter Two, will be working on Welcome to Derry. The series will also get assistance from Jason Fuchs, who contributed to It: Chapter Two.
Jason Fuchs, who wrote the first episode of the series, will collaborate with The Muschiettis to write the Welcome to Derry narrative. Several episodes, starting with episode one, will be directed by Andy Muschietti. Fuchs and Brad Caleb Kane are the project’s co-showrunners.
The producers have claimed that the series will broaden the perspective of the It flicks, although there are still little creative details available. Derry, Maine, the fictional town where the series is located, will serve as the backdrop. Derry is a city full of mysteries and horrors, as fans of the book and movies will already be aware; the series promises to delve even deeper into these topics.
Pennywise the Dancing Clown was portrayed by Bill Skarsgard in the It movies, along with Bill Denbrough, Jaeden Lieberher, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Sophia Lillis, Richie Tozier, Jack Dylan Grazer, Chosen Jacobs, Mike Hanlon, and Wyatt Oleff as Ben Hanscom, Eddie Kaspbrak, and Beverly Marsh. The older versions of the seven characters were portrayed by James McAvoy, Jay Ryan, Jessica Chastain, Bill Hader, James Ransone, Isaiah Mustafa, and Andy Bean.
