Why Pennywise Lives In The Sewers

Instead of living in the sewers, IT uses these as access points as it makes it easier for it to travel through town and go after its victims. IT’s lair is described in the novel as a deep cavern beneath Derry and the sewers built around it. IT’s connection to Derry was such that at some point the creature is described as being Derry and Derry being IT, which is why the town collapsed when IT was defeated at the end of the novel. Derry’s sewer system not only saw Pennywise/IT moving around town as it pleased, but it was also the setting for some key moments in the novel, such as the Rituals of Chüd (used to connect with IT and through which Bill met Maturin), the controversial sex scene with the young Losers, and Eddie’s death.

The adaptations of IT have caused some confusion over Pennywise’s hiding place, the creature’s origins, and why he lived in Derry and never seemed to leave town, but all these questions and more are answered in the novel (no wonder it’s such a long one). IT, then, doesn’t exactly live in the sewers but close to them, and Derry’s sewer system came in handy to it as it allowed it to move freely all over town and terrorize its victims through it, as it did with Georgie and in some of the adaptations’ most famous scenes, such as the shower scene in the miniseries and Patrick Hockstetter’s death in Andy Muschietti’s IT.
