HBO Max has released a new footage of its upcoming series Welcome to Derry. The series is set as a prequel to the horror film franchise It.
Hailing from director Andy Muschietti, Welcome to Derry is in the upcoming 2024-25 slate of HBO Max. A release date is yet to be announced.
Welcome to Derry will feature Taylour Paige, Jovan Adepo, James Remar, Chris Chalk, Madeleine Stowe and Stephen Rider among others.
While not much about the plot is revealed or the characters they will be playing, the prequel series will be set within the It universe and will happen in the 60s. Derry, Maine is the geographical premise where It takes place and is the home of the antagonist Pennywise the Clown. However, the series in all probabilities might not feature Bill Skarsgård as Pennywise, but trace the origins of the character.
Based on the horror novel by Stephan King, Andy also helmed the big-screen adaptations It and It: Chapter Two
