WATCH: Oooooooooh… trailer drops for original Child’s Play spin-off TV series, Chucky

July 16th, 2020 by Marc Comments

While the Child’s Play franchise was rebooted on the big screen last year (here) we knew that, dueto messy ownership rights, the original series of movies would also continue in some form (here).

And now we know exactly how.

SYFY and USA have just revealed the teaser for the Chucky series and, while it shows very little, it does confirm that yes, this is definitely the original Chucky, with Brad Dourif returning as the demonic doll and, just as cool, Jennifer Tilly is back too as the bride of Chucky, Tiffany.

As for the story, here’s what we know: “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.”

The tease of characters from Chucky’s past is interesting as he has crossed a lot of people over the course of his seven movies.

No release date for the series yet, but we’ll be watching. Will you? Let me know, gang.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
