    WB’s HBO Max Streaming Service.

    Can't wait to see a trailer for this. Love gremlins. Hope they also put the unaired 80s or 90s pilot gizmo and the gremlins on hbo max also.

    I love Gremlins, but the premise for this series sounds.. just awful. I hope it's better than they made it sound.

    Funny thing is mountain dew won't even work. It has to be pure water. They drink beer in the first film and walk in snow with no trouble so dew won't do zip to gizmo!

    As much as I enjoyed both Gremlins movie (it's one of those cheesy kinda films you can't help but love regarding the sequel), I really can't see this series lasting long. The concept is too simple to and "low roof" to maintain it as an ongoing series. Every episode is going to be a rehash of: 1) Don't spill water on 'em 2) They're vampires, sunlight kills them, and 3) Don't feed them after midnight (which opens a whole new can of worms regarding time zones and technically one can *never* feed them as all times are "After midnight").

    Um, I get that the CBR article implies that the image is new, but I know I’ve seen it before, somewhere, as part of some sort of promo. I just can’t recall where I saw it.

    Edit: here’s a Screenrant (which is owned by the same parent company as CBR) article from December which shows the same image:

    Okay, the voice cast looks good and the animation is interesting. Hopefully, they have good writers and a fun story to tell. Unless something incredibly stupid comes to light I think I'll be giving this a shot when it drops.
