With movie theaters not opening anytime soon, where are our favorite classic horror characters going to scare us? Well, one demon-possessed doll is making the move from the big screen to the small screen. Back in January, Syfy had given a straight-to-series order to Chucky. This week Syfy dropped the first teaser trailer for the series that is going to air on Syfy and USA. You can check it out above!
This new version of Chucky’s story takes place in a small town that is being terrorized by a string of murders after the appearance of a vintage Chucky doll at a yard sale. The series will feature friends and enemies of Chucky’s past that might reveal the truth behind the deaths and reveal some of the doll’s origins.
Here is the synopsis for Chucky:
In the new CHUCKY television series, 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.
Chucky is based on the Child’s Play franchise that first started terrorizing people back in 1988. It was directed by Tom Holland from a story by Don Mancini. This new series is also created and directed by Mancini. He is also working on an eight-film featuring the possessed doll, which according to the creator could crossover with the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise.
