Entertainment Weekly released the first image of the new horror series, simply named “Chucky,” with the reveal of a new poster and a teaser. The poster shows a long-haired Chucky reminiscent of “Child’s Play 2,” wearing a menacing grin and holding a blood-spattered knife.
The teaser for “Chucky” is everything that fans could hope for, including the trademark creepy Chucky laugh from Brad Dourif, who will return to voice the character. Alex Vincent, Fiona Dourif, Christine Else, and Jennifer Tilly are also all returning to the franchise, and Devon Sawa and Lexa Doig will also be joining (via EW).
Showrunner and creator Don Mancini gave a few hints for what viewers can expect from the new “Chucky” series. This time, the protagonist is a 14-year-old boy (played by Zackary Arthur) who finds the Chucky doll at a yard sale and buys him to use in his art sculptures. According to EW, the series of murders committed by Chucky in the small suburb brings to light some of the residents’ dark secrets, and beyond that, the show will also reveal more in depth details of Chucky’s origins. We can’t wait to see what murderous exploits everyone’s favorite killer doll will get into when “Chucky” premieres on SyFy on October 12, 2021.
