TVLine Items: Gremlins Animated Series, Expanse Adds Three and More

Gremlins Animated Series

The Gremlins franchise is getting its own TV series: WarnerMedia is developing an animated show based on the horror-comedy movies for its upcoming streaming service, our sister site Variety reports.

The project is a prequel which follows a young Mr. Wing — played by Keye Luke in both the original 1984 film and its 1990 sequel — as he goes on adventures with the friendly Mogwai Gizmo.

Tze Chun (Gotham, Once Upon a Time) will write and executive-produce the potential series.
