USA and Syfy are releasing a deadly new trailer for the upcoming Child’s Play spinoff series Chucky, confirming its place in franchise canon.
USA and Syfy have released a new trailer for Chucky.
The trailer begins with a teenager recalling how violence in Hackensack, NJ always seems to increase on Halloween. Soon after, this same teenager is seen buying a familiar looking Good Guy doll at a garage sale, and he later receives a mysterious phone call warning him about the doll and asking him to check the battery. Of course, it is empty. This leads the teenager into the rabbit hole of Charles Lee Ray / Chucky’s story, including his encounters with Andy, and Jennifer Tilly’s Tiffany is subsequently revealed to harbor part of Chucky’s fractured soul.
Based on Child’s play franchise, Chucky was ordered in series in January 2020 after entering development the year before. Executive produced and presented by franchise creator Don Mancini, the project will feature the return of several familiar faces (and voices), such as Brad Dourif, Jennifer Tilly, Fiona Dourif, Alex Vincent and Christine Elise.
“The character created by Don and David has terrified audiences for over 30 years,” said Chris McCumber, President of the United States and Syfy. Chucky was ordered in series. “Chucky’s longevity and legacy speaks for the creative storytelling and loyal fans that the film series has gathered over the years. We are delighted to partner with Nick and UCP again on this new SYFY series, and are incredibly proud to bring Chucky to television for the first time with the original creators. “
“I feel like Chucky has been my ticket to doing a lot of things in this business,” Mancini explained in May 2020. “One of the things we’ve always tried to do over decades and different movies, are we just trying to change a lot of things. From movie to movie, I’ve always tried to create a different tone, plug Chucky into a different subgenre. We’ve gone from slasher simple to comedy to crazy satirical comedy and return to simple horror again. With this TV show, our mission has been to preserve the direct fear of the original movie or the first two movies. But at the same time, continue with this tapestry in constant expansion of cohesive story that we have shot over the course of seven movies and thirty years. I think fans are really going to love to see the new characters that we bring to this realm and just to see how they have come together. far from our people classic sounds. Not just Chucky, but some of the others you might be hoping to see. it’s a good chance they show up. “
Chucky premieres October 12 in the US and Syfy.
