As someone who has enjoyed the films in the Child’s Play horror franchise, I’ve been looking forward to seeing the upcoming SyFy series Chucky, which is going to be a continuation of the films that have been made. So, in anticipation of the release of the series, SyFy has shared a new featurette that explores the entire legacy of the franchise. For those of you who haven’t watched any of the sequels that have been made since the original 1989 movie was released, this is the video you need to watch.
The show was developed and produced by Child’s Play creator Don Mancini, and in the new series, “after a vintage Chucky doll turns up at a suburban yard sale, an idyllic American town is thrown into chaos as a series of horrifying murders begin to expose the town’s hypocrisies and secrets. Meanwhile, the arrival of enemies — and allies — from Chucky’s past threatens to expose the truth behind the killings, as well as the demon doll’s untold origins as a seemingly ordinary child who somehow became this notorious monster.”
The series stars Zackary Arthur (Transparent), Teo Briones (Ratched), Alyvia Alyn Lind (Daybreak), and Björgvin Arnarson (The Seventh Day) as series regulars and the four teen leads. Jennifer Tilly is also reprising her role as Tiffany Valentine from the movies, and Devon Sawa (Final Destination) has also signed up for a role. Brad Dourif is set to provide the voice of Chucky, which is a role he first played way back in 1988’s Child’s Play. He will be joined by his daughter, Fiona Dourif, who will reprise her role of Nica.
Chucky will premiere this fall on Syfy and USA Network on October 12th. You can watch the trailer for it here.
