The Child’s Play TV series Chucky hits Syfy and USA in 2021. And today, it’s been confirmed that the killer doll will drop F-bombs. Every episode.
Franchise creator and Chucky showrunner, Don Mancini passed along this update during a recent Comic-Con@Home’s Sary Good TV with Horror’s Top Showrunners panel with executive producer Nick Antosca.
Mancini explained: “When Nick and I set up Chucky at Syfy, one of the first things we had to make sure of [was] that Chucky could drop his F-bombs, because it’s such an intrinsic part of his character, it would just seem wrong if he couldn’t… Fortunately, before we signed on the dotted line, they confirmed, yes, he can. I think he can drop, like, eight F-bombs per episode, or something like that — eight to ten, something like that — and I think there are variations depending on what time it airs.”

The new series begins when an idyllic American town is thrown into chaos when a vintage Chucky doll turns up at a suburban yard sale.
Brad Dourif will return as the voice of Chucky while other fan favorites like Jennifer Tilly, Alex Vincent, and Christine Elise are rumored to return.
