“Chucky” is Coming to Scare You on TV

The doll of nightmares is coming to the small screen. 

Syfy has decided to adapt the infamous Chucky into a television series that is sure to be as scary as the film franchise.

Originally appearing in the 1988 film Child’s Play, the character took on a life of its own, spurning six sequels. 2019’s Child’s Play was a remake of the original and depicted the murderous doll being voiced by Mark Hamill. 

It is not yet known whether Hamill will reprise his role for the television version, which has already been ordered to series by Syfy, but veteran director and screenwriter of all 7 films, Don Mancini, will serve as showrunner. 

“In the new Chucky television series, after a vintage Chucky doll turns up at a suburban yard sale, an idyllic American town is thrown into chaos as a series of horrifying murders begin to expose the town’s hypocrisies and secrets,” reads the official logline.

“Meanwhile, the arrival of enemies — and allies — from Chucky’s past threatens to expose the truth behind the killings, as well as the demon doll’s untold origins as a seemingly ordinary child who somehow became this notorious monster.”

No premiere date for the series has been announced as yet.
