Don Mancini’s Child’s Play TV series, Chucky was set to shoot in Toronto this fall. But today we learned production has been pushed back until next year due to COVID-19. The show was already set to hit SYFY and USA Network next year, so we’re hoping this delay won’t push it’s premiere back too much.
We’ll let you know when we hear more.
