Warner Bros Discovery is launching a brand new Gremlins series on its new streaming service Max next month.
Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai premieres on Tuesday, May 23rd.
The series takes viewers back to 1920s Shanghai where the Wing family first meets the young Mogwai called Gizmo.
Sam Wing (future shop owner Mr. Wing in the 1984 film) accepts the dangerous task to take Gizmo home and embarks on a journey through the Chinese countryside.
Sam and Gizmo are joined by a teenage street thief named Elle, and together, they encounter—and sometimes battle—colorful monsters and spirits from Chinese folklore. Along their quest, they are pursued by a power-hungry industrialist and his growing army of evil Gremlins.
The show’s cast includes Ming-Na Wen, James Hong, BD Wong, Matthew Rhys, Izaac Wang, and Gabrielle Neveah Green. The series will also feature Zach Galligan who starred as Billy Peltzer in the films.
