It’s been a while since we’ve gotten any updates about Don Mancini’s Child’s Play TV series, Chucky, currently in the works at USA and Syfy–but our friends at Collider just broke some incredible news. They’ve revealed cast members for Chucky, including horror icon (and former teen heartthrob) Devon Sawa!

According to Collider:
Devon Sawa (Final Destination) has booked a major role on the USA Network/Syfy series, Collider has exclusively learned. Sources say that Zackary Arthur (Transparent), Teo Briones (Ratched), Bjorgvin Arnarson (PEN15) and Alyvia Alyn Lind (The Young and the Restless) will play the four young leads.
As far as we know, fans can still look forward to Brad Dourif reprising his role as the voice of Chucky; Jennifer Tilly is also expected to return as Chucky’s wife, Tiffany.
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.
Produced by UCP, the series will be executive produced by creator Don Mancini (Hannibal, SYFY’s Channel Zero), David Kirschner (Hocus Pocus, Frailty), Nick Antosca (Hulu’s The Act, SYFY’s Channel Zero) and Harley Peyton (Twin Peaks, SYFY’s Channel Zero). Mancini, who penned the film franchise, will also write the adaptation, serve as showrunner and direct the first episode.
