Review: It enters the pantheon of horror
This series will be perfectly in the continuity of the feature films, since we will find the director in the staging of the first episode, as well as in the production with his wife Barbara Muschietti, and their partner Jason Fuchs (the latter will also be in writing). It will be called Welcome to Derry and will take place mainly in the 1960s, specifies variety. We should also see the“origin story” of Pennywise, the creepy clown embodied in the films by Bill Skarsgard.
For the moment, it is not known if comedians of the films will return for this series conceived by Warner Bros. Television for HBO Max, but if the team is serious about bringing him into their continuity, chances are Bill will be back. Patience, now that the project is officially announced, we should know more quickly.
