Posted By themoviesleuth 10 days ago on Entertainment

 At the time that IT Chapter Two was released in cinemas, there were rumblings that another cinematic entry would either serve as a continuation or prequel to the highly successful films. Yet nothing ever came of those rumors. Well, today it's being reported that they're finally developing a new series for HBO Max that will lead up to the events of the films. Set in the '60s, the new show will chronicle the evil happenings in Derry that lead up to the events of the Stephen King novel and film adaptation. The show will be a deep dive in to the evolution of Pennywise and his grip on the town of Derry and will chronicle his backstory and years before the happenings in the book and movies. Right now it's being reported that Andy Muschietti, the director of the films, and Barbara Muschietti are both on board as producers for the series. If it ends up being fully green lit, Andy has signed to direct the first episode. Since WB was the company behind the films, they will also be partnering with HBO for the upcoming project.Currently the show's title is slated as Welcome To Derry. We'll obviously update more as the news comes in. -CG (function() { var zergnet = document.createElement('script'); zergnet.type = 'text/javascript'; zergnet.async = true; zergnet.src = (document.location.protocol == "https:" ?
