HBO Max has ordered an ‘It’ prequel series, with the working title of ‘Welcome to Derry.’

Andy Muschietti, who directed 2017’s ‘It’ and 2019’s ‘It: Chapter Two,’ will serve as show runner on ‘Welcome to Derry’ alongside his sister, ‘It’ producer Barbara Muschietti, as well as actor-writer Jason Fuchs, who played Richie’s manager in It: Chapter Two.

Said Fuchs in a statement: “To be able to return to the world of my all-time favorite horror novel and help build upon the singularly brilliant cinematic universe created by Andy and Barbara is more than the opportunity of a lifetime, it’s a dream come true — or, maybe more appropriately, a nightmare.”

The Muschiettis shared: “As teenagers, we took turns reading chapters of Stephen King’s 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.”
