The show begins after a vintage Chucky doll turns up at a yard sale. An American town is thrown into chaos as a series of horrifying murders 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 doll’s untold origins as a seemingly ordinary child who somehow became this notorious monster.
Franchise creator Don Mancini will write, serve as showrunner, direct the pilot, and executive produce with David Kirschner (Hocus Pocus, Frailty), Nick Antosca (The Act, Channel Zero), and Harley Peyton (Twin Peaks, Channel Zero).

Mancini says the show will use almost “100 percent puppetry.” He teases, “I think it’s so important to keep Chucky as a practical puppet effect, partly because it’s important for the actors to have something to respond to on set … I also think it’s important that Chucky have the feel of a doll, of a puppet. He should be a little bit herky-jerky.”
