Killer Klowns From Outer Space could soon have a four-part miniseries debut according to director/writer Stephen Chiodo. The TV series could air on cable soon. Chiodo explains that he could not determine if he wanted to make a sequel or remake so he made a “requel,” both sequel and remake. This new story will include new people battling the Klown invasion with guest appearances from some of the original cast periodically with their stories of what happened over the last 25 years.
Right now, we are currently pursuing a long arch series for cable. We wondered, should we do a sequel to the first one or do we do a remake? We came up with a ‘requel’ - it’s a sequel and a remake. We’ve been developing this for a while. It’s a trilogy in four parts, and it really follows the continuing adventures of new people who are experiencing this phenomenon of a Klown invasion, and once in a while you see some of the old guys pop up and hear their stories - find out what happened over the last 25 years. It’s ****ing great.
