Syfy officially ordered their new “Chucky” series last month, from franchise creator Don Mancini and “Channel Zero” creator Nick Antosca.

Franchise star Jennifer Tilly has now confirmed that she will be appearing in the series. Her role as Tiffany (both the human and the doll) is iconic.


I’m so excited,” Tilly told Page Six this week. She continued, “Don Mancini, who created Chucky 30 years ago, is the writer on this series, so it’s the original Chucky. A little bird told me that I am going to be a part of it.”


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.”


The show will be a fresh take on the franchise, allowing us to explore Chucky’s character with a depth that is uniquely afforded by the television series format while staying true to the original vision that has terrorized audiences for over three decades now,” Mancini has stated.


Tilly was introduced to the franchise in 1998’s Bride of Chucky where we learned that she was in love with the killer Charles Lee “Chucky” Ray. She brought him back as the killer doll we all know and love who was sassier, funnier, and more psychopathic than in previous films. The last time we saw Tiffany she driving away with Chucky in the body of Fiona Dourif’s character in 2017’s Cult of Chucky.

Filming is set to begin this summer on “Chucky“.
