Back in February, we learned that the WarnerMedia streaming service was developing a Gremlins animated series, and we now know that series is titled "Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai," and it will serve as a prequel to the original film.
Variety reports that the half-hour series has received a 10-episode order.
Set in 1920s Shanghai, the series will tell the story of how 10-year-old Sam Wing met the young Mogwai called Gizmo.
"Along with a teenage street thief named Elle, Sam and Gizmo take a perilous journey through the Chinese countryside, encountering, and sometimes battling, colorful monsters and spirits from Chinese folklore. On their quest to return Gizmo to his family and uncover a legendary treasure, they are pursued by a power-hungry industrialist and his growing army of evil Gremlins."
Tze Chun will write the series and serve as co-executive producer. Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey of Amblin Television will executive produce along with Sam Register. Brendan Hay will also co-executive produce with Dan Krall serving as supervising producer.
Amblin will produce in association with Warner Bros. Animation.
