The story goes that after finding out about Chucky’s successful TV series on the SyFy channel, Pennywise the Clown became enraged and marched up from his sewer into a board meeting of Warner Bros executives, and demanded to know where HIS show was.
It has been foretold that Pennywise the Clown will return to Derry every 27 years. The kids who originally encountered the beast back in the late 80s are now grown up, and they figure, if they don’t take him on this time, the horror will never end. Thus begins It Chapter Two.
