Chucky will be back doing what he does best in October, as revealed in an all-new Chucky Syfy trailer. straight out [email protected] on Sunday, the network released the full trailer for the anticipated horror series that brings back the original Chucky for much more murder and mayhem. The trailer, along with the full [email protected] panel, both have since been released online and you can check them out below.
although Child’s play got a reboot in 2019, this new one Chucky series brings back the original version of the killer doll voiced by Brad Dourif since 1988. With Dourif back in the role, Chucky creator Don Mancini’s new series comes with several other familiar faces from past films making special appearances. At the heart of the new show, however, is a new cast of characters that Chucky will sadly meet after a young boy finds him at a yard sale.
in the new Chucky 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 is faced with a series of gruesome murders that uncover the deep hypocrisy and hidden secrets of the city. Meanwhile, friends and foes from Chucky’s past crawl back into his world and threaten to uncover the truth behind his mysterious parentage as a seemingly ordinary child who somehow became this infamous monster.
Zackary Arthur leads the new cast as Jake Wheeler with his co-stars, including Bjorgvin Arnarson as Devon Evans, Alyvia Alyn Lind as Lexy Cross, Teo Briones as Junior Wheeler, Devon Sawa as Lucas Wheeler and Lexa Doig as Bree Wheeler. In addition to Brad Dourif as Chucky, recurring franchise stars Jennifer Tilly as Tiffany, Fiona Dourif as Nica Pierce, Alex Vincent as Andy Barclay and Christine Elise as Kyle.
This will be the first official TV series for Charles Lee Ray. Initially he debuted in Child’s play in 1988, followed by the sequels of the original trilogy in 1990 and 1991. Jennifer Tilly came into the picture with Bride of Chucky in 1998 and returned with Dourif for the sequels Seed of Chucky in 2004, Curse of Chucky in 2013 and Cult of Chucky in 2017. Don Mancini co-wrote the original and scripted each subsequent installment, including directing the final three films.
Obviously, the series won’t recognize MGM’s Child’s Play reboot that came out in 2019. Directed by Lars Klevberg and written by Tyler Burton Smith, the reimagined stars Mark Hamill as the voice of another version of Chucky. There was some concern for a long time Chucky fans that the reboot marked the end of Dourif’s version of the character, but Mancini was passionate about continuing with the original killer doll, as Cult of Chucky helped set up the next chapter in that story.
In USA & SYFY’s first trailer of the Don Mancini-created series, Chucky, we meet Jake (Zackary Arthur) who comes across a familiar-looking doll at a local yard sale. This small town is about to change forever. Watch the premiere of Chucky, October 12 at 10/9c on SYFY and USA
