With Orion gearing up to release their Child’s Play reboot next month, you may be wondering where franchise creator Don Mancini‘s “Chucky” series stands.

 

Last we reported Nick Antosca who created “Channel Zero” had come on board to produce. During a recent talk with Slash Film, Antosca teased that the series will more like the early films of the franchise and less like the Bride of Chucky and Seed of Chucky.

 

The series is going to be closer to the tone of the first two movies in the series,” Antosca stated. “It’s going to go back to a sort of classic scare.” He continued. ““It’s consistent with that mythology, but it’s a whole new story,” Antosca explained. “So you could come into it without knowing anything about the previous stuff and get into it. But it is consistent with all the mythology that has come before, so it is in canon.”

 

 

Antosca has left the door open for franchise regulars Jennifer Tilly and Fiona Dourif to appear in the series. Brad Dourif, the longtime voice of Chucky” is returning for the series.

 

A few days ago Mancini himself tweeted that the “Chucky” series is coming to Syfy in 2020.
