Don Mancini’s Chucky TV series in the works at SYFY and USA. And today we hear franchise stars, Alex Vincent and Elise McCarthy will return. Vincent played Andy in four Child’s Play movies, and McCarthy played Kyle in two Child’s Play movies.
SYFY WIRE broke the news.
Mancini teased all of these familiar cast members last year during an exclusive interview with SYFY WIRE. “I think fans are really gonna love to see the new characters that we introduce into this realm and just to see how they came off of our classic characters,” he said. “Not just Chucky, but some of the others that you may be hoping to see. There’s a good chance they may turn up.”
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.
