Chucky TV series clip has the killer doll dissect a frog

Over the course of seven films (not counting the Child’s Play remake), Chucky the killer doll has murdered a lot of people. In the clip from the upcoming Chucky television series that can be seen in the embed above, he adds a frog to his list of victims as he helps out a new friend with a class project. Chucky is set to begin airing on both Syfy and USA Network on October 12th.

Don Mancini, who has written every Child’s Play film (except that remake) and directed a few of them, developed Chucky with producer David Kirschner. Mancini and Kirschner are executive producing Chucky with Harley Peyton, Alex Hedlund, and Nick Antosca. Mancini also directed the first episode. The show’s synopsis:

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 cast of the series includes Zackary Arthur, Devon Sawa (playing the dual role of twin brothers), Fiona Dourif, Jennifer Tilly, Bjorgvin Arnarson, Jacob Breedon, Alex Vincent, Lexa Doig, Teo Briones, Christine Elise, Alyvia Alyn Lind, and Lind’s real-life mother Barbara Alyn Woods. David Kohlsmith is playing the young Charles Lee Ray for the scenes where we’ll see his “untold origins”. And Brad Dourif has again recorded the lines Chucky will be speaking.

A follow-up to all of the Child’s Play movies (remake excluded), Chucky picks up where Cult of Chucky left off. With just two weeks to go until the show’s premiere, are you excited to check it out? Let us know in the comments section below.
