Synopsis: The gang is called back to Derry 27 years after they fought Pennywise by Mike, who never left town. He calls each in turn - Bill, Beverly, Eddie, Stan, Ben & Richie, & lets them know that the murders have begun again. Each member of the Loser’s Club makes their way back to town, remembering all the horrible things they had repressed in order to become functioning adults. Once reunited, Mike splits them all up again by sending them on a quest for meaningful artifacts from their pasts which they will use in a final showdown with Pennywise.
