The cast for SYFY/USA’s Chucky series continues to grow, with SYFY reporting today actress Lexa Doig is the latest to join the franchise.
Doig is playing a character named Bree Webber.
“Married to Logan (played by Devon Sawa), she is the aunt of Jake Webber (Zackary Arthur), one of the teenage leads in the 10-episode series. According to the official character description, Bree is held to an unrealistic standard — by her husband and herself, which leads her to keep a dark secret from her family.”
Franchise creator Don Mancini will be writing and executive producing the series with David Kirschner and Nick Antosca. Mancini has promised a “fresh take on the franchise” with a series that’ll “explore Chucky’s character with a depth that is uniquely afforded by the television series format.”
The cast will also include Teo Briones, Bjorgvin Arnarson and Alyvia Alyn Lind.
“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. 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.”
Jennifer Tilly has confirmed that she’ll be appearing in the new series with franchise alumni Alex Vincent and Christine Elise also set to appear.
Fiona Dourif will reprise her role of Nica.
Brad Dourif will be returning for the 10-part series to voice Charles Lee “Chucky” Ray.
