During [email protected]’s virtual Legacy of Chucky panel, celebrating the 30+ year legacy of the Child’s Play franchise and iconic killer doll, the full trailer for the Don Mancini-created horror series was released. The series will premiere on October 12 on SYFY and USA Network.
The Chucky series will be set in an idyllic American town thrown into chaos as a series of horrifying murders sweep through and threaten to expose the town’s hypocrisies and secrets, all of which come on the heels of a vintage Chucky doll turning up at a suburban yard sale. At the same time, the titular doll must deal with the arrival of enemies and allies from his past who threaten to expose the truth behind the killings and the untold origins as a seemingly ordinary child turned demonic killer.
Check out the official trailer here:
Franchise vets Brad Dourif, Jennifer Tilly, and Fiona Dourif are set to reprise their roles as the voice of the titular killer doll, Tiffany and Nica Pierce, respectively. It will also be led by Zackary Arthur, Teo Briones, Bjorgvin Arnarson, and Alyvia Alyn Lind. Joining them are Devon Sawa, Lexa Doig, and Barbara Alyn Woods.
Chucky is created and executive produced by franchise creator Don Mancini, who is also serving as the showrunner and director for the pilot episode. Executive producers are franchise producer and doll creator David Kirschner and Nick Antosca via his Eat the Cat production label.
