2017’s IT: Chapter One, directed by Andy Muschietti, was based on the first half of Stephen King’s 1986 novel. It chronicled the lives of a group of children, who call themselves The Losers Club, who are terrorised by a murderous, shapeshifting creature dubbed IT. They defeat IT but resolve return to their hometown to destroy the creature if it ever returns. IT: Chapter Two will adapt the second half of the novel, when The Losers Club return home after three decades for a second showdown with IT.
IT: Chapter Two will arrive in September, 2019. Check out more of what we know about the sequel here.
