The director of The Flashwho we have here as showrunners, Andy Muschietti shared a first official photo directly from the set on his Instagram profile. The image in question does not portray any character in the series, but reveals that one of the relatives (grandfather, or perhaps great-grandfather) of Henry Bowers, i.e. the bully who used to torment the Losers Club, is the police chief of Derry in the period in which the show is set.

As for the production of Welcome to Derry, instead we know that Andy Muschietti and his sister Barbara will take care of it and act as showrunner, in addition to directing the pilot and some other episodes. Regarding their participation in the series, the Muschietti brothers said in a joint statement: “As teenagers, we took turns reading chapters of Stephen King’s It until the thick book fell apart. It’s an epic story that contains multitudes, far beyond what we could possibly explore in our films. We can’t wait to share the depth of Stephen King’s novel in all its heart, humor, humanity and horror“. Horror master Stephen King, on the other hand, said: “I am thrilled that the story of Derry, the most haunted city in Maine, continues and I am delighted that Andy Muschietti will oversee the spooky festivities alongside his talented sister Barbara”
