BILL SKARSGARD TO REPRISE ROLE AS PENNYWISE IN MAX’S “WELCOME TO DERRY” SERIES

Posted on: June 17th, 2024

Are you ready to float again?

After almost a year of speculation, it has finally been confirmed that Bill Skarsgard will reprise his role as Pennywise in Max’s Welcome to Derry series.

The news comes after differing reports suggested Skarsgard may be involved, and would be completely absent from the project.

Of course, given that Welcome to Derry will act as a prequel to Andy Muschietti’s It movies, it only seems logical to have Skarsgard return as Pennywise.

So far, we know precious little regarding the plot, however, we have been made aware that Welcome to Derry is merely a working title. Judging by the first promo footage, the series will take place in the 1960s, and looks very much in the same vein as the theatrical outings.

Skarsgard joins a cast that already includes James Remar, Taylour Paige, Jovan Adepo, and Chris Chalk; however, we don’t know what roles the actors will embody.

Andy Muschietti will direct four of the series’ nine episodes, and will serve as a producer, alongside his wife Barbara.

Currently still filming following strike-related delays, Welcome to Derry is expected to hit Max in 2025.

We will let you know when any further concrete details emerge.
