Chucky Teaser Brings Back Child's Play's Killer Doll - And Gives Him a Butcher Knife
Syfy and USA released a new teaser trailer for the upcoming Child's Play spinoff series Chucky.
The teaser begins with a close-up of a smiling Good Guys doll whose eyes quickly shoot open. The doll is then placed outside at a yard sale, where it's purchased by a teenager. However, as the teen walks away, the host of the yard sale notes that a knife is missing from a nearby butcher's block.
The Child's Play franchise follows a notorious serial killer who escapes death by transferring his spirit into children's dolls. It began with 1988's Child's Play and has since spawned six sequels and one remake.
Chucky was ordered to series in January 2020 after entering development the previous year. Executive produced and showrun by franchise creator Don Mancini, the project will feature the return of several familiar faces (and voices), such as Brad Dourif, Jennifer Tilly, Fiona Dourif, Alex Vincent and Christine Elise.
"The character Don and David created has terrified audiences for over 30 years," USA & Syfy President Chris McCumber said when Chucky was ordered to series. "The longevity and legacy of Chucky speaks to the creative storytelling and the loyal fans the film series has collected over the years. We are excited to once again partner with Nick and UCP on this new SYFY series, and are incredibly proud to bring Chucky to television for the first time with the original creators."
