  |  @   |  

The malevolent sewer-scuttling clown known as Pennywise will be back next year to haunt a much older Losers Club in Derry, Maine. Andy Muschietti returns to direct the highly anticipated horror sequel, IT: Chapter 2, which will reinforce the idea that clowns are f****** scary. In it we see all the members of the Losers, who are now all grown up, return to their hometown to face off against Pennywise one last time. But it’s not so much the battle that we should be concerned with as it is the ritual that will be in the film.

The other being on Fox years ago. But thankfully fans didn’t have to wait nearly as long this time for the show to find a new home. It’s been announced that Netflix has picked up the show. And they’re skipping that pesky pilot episode step and jumping straight to a full-series order.
