A new teaser just dropped for the upcoming revival of the Child’s Play franchise in Chucky. In the new show, Brad Dourif is back as the voice of Chucky and Jennifer Tilly is returning as his plastic soulmate, Tiffany. Here’s how creator Don Mancini described the new show:
“The main character is a 14-year-old gay boy who’s bullied and sort of lost after the recent death of his mother. He’s a young artist [making] sculptures with doll parts. He finds Chucky at a yard sale and buys him, but it turns out that he gets much more than he bargained for. One of the things I wanted to do was bring [the franchise] back to its Child’s Play roots and have the protagonists [be] kids. But since, with the first couple of movies, we’d already delved into having little kids I wanted to explore something different, so this time we’re exploring young teenagers.”
The show also features Lexa Doig (Jason X), Devon Sawa (Final Destination), Fiona Dourif, Alex Vincent, and Christine Elise. Chucky will stab his way back into your hearts on Oct. 12 at 10 p.m. on USA and SYFY.
