TKO Studios co-founder Tze Chun is set to write and executive produce the reported “adult-focused project,” which will take place in the 1920s in Shanghai. The forthcoming series is set to explain the story of how Mr. Wing met Gizmo at 10-years-old. Throughout the show, they’ll run into Elle, a teenage street thief, and go on tons of adventures across the countryside in China.
Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai will be released in 2020 on WarnerMedia’s upcoming streaming service, which will launch toward the end of this year.
