Child’s Play premiered thirty-three years ago and made everyone afraid of the creepy-looking red-haired doll, and now Syfy is coming back with Chucky now transformed into a series after eight movies, Chucky will continue his reign of terror.
The new trailer for the Chucky series shows a teenager named Jake Wheeler (Zackary Arthur), who finds Chucky for sale at a local yard sale in the town, the same town where Charles Lee Ray was born and Lee Ray is a serial killer whose soul is inhabiting the Good Guy doll. Jake stuffs Chucky into his school locker before taking it home, but before going home with Jake, Chucky wreaks a little havoc. We also learn that before Lee Ray decided on putting a piece of his soul into the doll he also transferred it into someone else.
The Chucky series has been in development since 2019 and it is created by Don Mancini, after the disappointing outcome of Chucky’s reboot which didn’t have any of its original creative team behind it. Mancini will serve as the creator, showrunner, writer, and executive producer. David Kirschner, Nick Antosca, Alex Hedlund, and Harley Peyton will also be serving as executive producers on the series.
The pilot episode of the ten-episode series will be written by Mancini himself, and it will premiere on USA Network and Syfy on October 12th at 10 PM. Check out the new trailer below:
