Child’s Play premiered nearly thirty-three years ago and made everyone afraid of the creepy-looking red-haired doll, and now Syfy’s Chucky series is doing the same thing while also doing justice to its predecessor. The Syfy series follows 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. Chucky was recently renewed for its third season by Syfy. So, while you wait for the third season to come out here are some shows you could watch while waiting.
