Revenge vet Madeleine Stowe could be facing something even more scary than the Hamptons’ elite: IT.
The actress will recur in Welcome to Derry, HBO Max’s upcoming prequel series to the supernatural horror film based on Stephen King’s 1986 novel, our sister site Deadline reports. No character details are currently available.
Also boarding the show in a series-regular role is Stephen Rider (Daredevil, Instinct), who joins previously announced cast members Chris Chalk (Gotham), James Remar (Black Lightning), Taylour Paige (Hit the Floor) and Jovan Adepo (Sorry for Your Loss).
Welcome to Derry will reportedly take place in the ’60s and explore the origins of the curse that would haunt the small Maine town for the next 27 years. The series will lead into the events of the first IT movie, with filmmaker Andy Muschietti set to direct multiple episodes including the premiere.
