It has been nearly 27 years since we’ve last heard from “IT,” which is Stephen King’s 1986 novel. In November of 1990, a miniseries based off of the book aired on ABC over a span of two nights. Now, IT reappeared in theatres on Sept. 28 2017, which is coincidentally 27 years from its 1990 miniseries.
