Sorry Jack, Chucky’s back… Again! Coming to TV for his own show on Syfy – but he’s not the only Child’s Play movie character returning.
The series ready to go on USA & SYFY October 12th, 2021 has not some, but ALL the franchises’ key players involved in what is set to be, Chucky’s finest hour and a full-circle karmic event that was set in motion over 30 years ago. Brad Dourif, the obvious here, is of course back voicing the killer doll along with his ex-sweetheart Tiffany, Jennifer Tilly coming back to the scene to rage hell once more. Fiona Dourif who plays Nica, Alex Vincent as Andy, and Kimberly Elise as Kyle all have a hand in Chucky’s new role in a small town in suburbia with newcomer Zackary Arthur as the new doll-bearer. Kind of like Frodo and the ring- you know such a heavy deadly burden and all.
Per the press release:
In the new television series, an idyllic American town is thrown into chaos after a vintage ‘Good Guy’ doll turns up at a suburban yard sale. Soon, everyone must grapple with a series of horrifying murders that begin to expose the town’s deep hypocrisies and hidden secrets. Meanwhile, friends and foes from Chucky’s past creep back into his world and threaten to expose the truth behind his mysterious origins as a seemingly ordinary child who somehow became this notorious monster.
CHUCKY is produced by UCP and executive produced by creator Don Mancini, David Kirschner, Nick Antosca and Alex Hedlund. Harley Peyton will also serve as executive producer. Mancini, who penned the film franchise, wrote the television adaptation, will direct the first episode and serves as showrunner.
