Get ready for the new daily show

A Gremlins prequel animated series is coming

February 28th, 2019 by Marc Comments

It looks like we’re getting a Gremlins TV series.

While we all wait for news on the (supposedly) upcoming Gremlins 3 (here) we will have a new animated show from Warner Bros.

The potential series is said to be a period piece that would follow Mr. Wing, the Chinese grandfather played in the films by Keye Luke, as a young man as he goes on adventures with the friendly Mogwai Gizmo. The series will be produced by Warner Bros. Television and Amblin Television. Both Warner Bros. and Amblin produced the films on which the show will be based.

While it’s not exactly something we thought we wanted, it could definitely be a fun story to tell and a nice prequel to the original 1984 movie.

The show will be written by Cold Comes the Night’s Tze Chun who has also worked on Gotham and Once Upon A Time.



The series is likely to be launched on the upcoming Warner Bros streaming service.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
