Coming to SYFY and USA on October 12, IGN premieres the official art for Don Mancini‘s “Chucky” series that teases some killer soul-swapping and takes a stab at telling a classic coming-of-
age rage story.
Brad Dourif is back as Chucky and Jennifer Tilly is back as Tiffany in “Chucky,” which will continue the storylines from the *original* movies and their recent sequels, Curse and Cult of Chucky. Also returning are Fiona Dourif as Nica Pierce, Alex Vincent as Andy Barclay, and Christine Elise as Kyle. Devon Sawa (Final Destination, Hunter Hunter) also stars.
“Chucky” has been described as a “fresh take on the franchise” that’ll “explore Chucky’s character with a depth that is uniquely afforded by the television series format.”
In the 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. 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.”
The premiere episode of “Chucky” was directed by Mancini himself, with other episode directors including Dermott Downs, Leslie Libman, Samir Rahem, and Jeff Renfroe.
“Chucky” is executive produced by Nick Antosca (“Channel Zero”).
