“Do you want a balloon too, Georgie?”

Bill Skarsgard is set to reprise his role of Pennywise and star in and executive produce the Max It prequel series Welcome To Derry, according to a report on Deadline.

The series is produced by Warner Bros. Television and will see Skarsgard reunite with other key players from the It film franchise including the two movies director Andy Muschietti, producer Barbara Muschietti and Chapter Two co-producer Jason Fuchs. Muschietti is slated to direct four episodes of the nine-episode series.

Skarsgard has been spending lots of time in the makeup room as The Crow is set to debut in August and he will be Count Orlok in Nosferatu. This marks Skarsgard’s return to King’s streaming TV universe and a reunion with WBTV after he starred in the studio’s Hulu series Castle Rock.

Keep it locked to Horror News Network for more on the It franchise.
