Coming this Fall to SYFY and USA is Don Mancini‘s “Chucky” series, and Mancini has taken to social media tonight to share a short new teaser for Chucky’s small screen debut.
Brad Dourif is back as Chucky and Jennifer Tilly is back as Tiffany in “Chucky,” which will continue the storyline from the *original* movies. We don’t yet have any actual footage from the series, which only recently began filming, but this small taste should whet your appetite. Expect much more soon, including images, an official trailer, and all that good stuff!
*UPDATED WITH A SECOND SHORT TEASER*.
Also returning are Fiona Dourif as Nica Pierce, Alex Vincent as Andy Barclay, and Christine Elise as Kyle. The cast also includes Devon Sawa (Final Destination, Hunter Hunter).
“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.”
“Chucky” is executive produced by Nick Antosca (“Channel Zero”).
