Chucky TV series trailer is packed with returning cast members

Chucky, the television series continuation of the Child’s Play film franchise, will begin airing on Syfy and USA Network next week, on October 12th! In anticipation of the premiere date, a lengthy trailer has arrived online and can be seen in the embed above. This trailer not only sets up the plot, but also gives us a look at several of the returning cast members from the movies: Jennifer Tilly, Fiona Dourif, Alex Vincent, and Christine Elise are all in there.

A follow-up to all of the Child’s Play movies (remake excluded), Chucky picks up where Cult of Chucky left off. 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.

In addition to the actors mentioned above, the cast of the series includes Zackary Arthur, Devon Sawa (playing the dual role of twin brothers), Bjorgvin Arnarson, Jacob Breedon, Lexa Doig, Teo Briones, 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 yes, Brad Dourif has again recorded the lines Chucky will be speaking.

I’m really excited about this show. Will you be watching it? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
