It looks like all the horror icons of our youth are making a big comeback. Michael Myers in Halloween kills, Candyman and soon Chucky. Evil “Good Guy” doll has been terrorizing horror fans ever since Child’s play in 1988. And make us laugh. Now SYFY and USA are bringing back the little terror in a new TV series. And there are a lot of familiar faces, including Jennifer Tilly as Tiffany, Chucky’s true sweetheart. And of course, Brad Dourif as the voice of the titular Demonic Doll. You can consult the new Chucky trailer right here:
You can also read the official series description below:
“In the new TV series, an idyllic American town is plunged into chaos after a vintage ‘Good Guy’ doll shows up at a suburban garage sale. Soon everyone has to face a series of gruesome murders. Those who begin to expose the city’s deep hypocrisies and hidden secrets. Meanwhile, friends and foes from Chucky’s past return to his world. They threaten to expose the truth behind his mysterious origins as a seemingly ordinary child who has somehow become this notorious monster.
SYFY / USA networks
Not only is Chucky’s original creator Don Mancini the showrunner for the series, but he’s also directing the first episode. Original Twin peaks writer Harley Peyton is also on board as an executive producer. And Devon Sawa, who has quite a horror pedigree thanks to cult classics like Inactive hands, Final destination, and Casper, is also recurrent. In October, Chucky will also feature in the upcoming Shudder series Behind the monsters, with his cinematic slasher buddies. A Child’s play remake hit theaters just a few years ago, with Mark Hamill voicing Chucky. But as tall as Mark is, nothing beats the original.
The first episode of Chucky Airs on SYFY and USA on October 12 at 10 p.m. ET / PT.
