Talk of a new Gremlins movie has been doing the rounds ever since the second movie opened in cinemas but despite all the rumours of writers and original cast members being on board nothing has ever materialised. That is until today.
According to a story which broke at Variety, a 10-episode series of an animated Gremlins prequel has been in the pipeline since February of this year but only now has it been confirmed as definitely going ahead, and has been given the title: Secrets of the Mogwai.
Each episode will last for 30 minutes and will be set in Shanghai in the 1920s. The story will focus on how 10-year-old Sam Wing (the old dude from the movies) first encountered the curious little creature known to us as Gizmo.
When the show is finally exposed to sunlight it will air on the WarnerMedia streaming service. We’ll have more news when it drops, and hopefully a first look trailer very soon.
