Who doesn’t love that psychotic, red-headed, possessed doll, Chucky? Well, the word is we are about to get a lot more of him. As the 30th anniversary of Child’s Play approaches, Comingsoon.com is reporting that franchise creator Don Mancini is bringing Chucky to the small screen for a new series.
Mancini said during an interview that he and producer David Kirschner are currently developing a Child’s Play television series that will pick up where the last film left off. He also promised that the series will be “dark and disturbing”. Brad Dourif, the long-time voice of our favorite Good Guy doll turned bad boy, is on board. The eight-episode hour-long series will not be a reboot (thank God), it will be a continuation of Chuck’s story.
In the final moments of the last film, Cult of Chucky, Chucky possessed the body of Nica Pierce, played by Fiona Dourif, and escaped the mental institution. She was picked up by Chucky’s long-time love Tiffany (Jennifer Tilly) and the two drove off into the night.
