The first look image and teaser for SYFY/USA’s ‘Chucky’ TV series has been released by Entertainment Weekly.
Franchise creator Don Mancini is writing and executive producing the series with David Kirschner and Nick Antosca.
“The main character is a 14-year-old gay boy who’s bullied and sort of lost after the recent death of his mother,”
“He’s a young artist [making] sculptures with doll parts. He finds Chucky at a yard sale and buys him, but it turns out that he gets much more than he bargained for. One of the things I wanted to do was bring [the franchise] back to its Child’s Play roots and have the protagonists [be] kids. But since, with the first couple of movies, we’d already delved into having little kids I wanted to explore something different, so this time we’re exploring young teenagers.”
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 as well as newcomer Lexa Doig
Fiona Dourif will reprise her role of Nica.
Brad Dourif will be returning for the 10-part series to voice Charles Lee “Chucky” Ray.
Chucky will premiere Oct. 12 at 10 p.m. on USA and SYFY.
