Chucky (2021 TV Series) – Trailer Talk
Ever since the 2019 remake of ‘Child’s Play’ was released, there have been talks of a TV series revolving around the titular killer doll. And, for fans who weren’t happy about the absence of the original cast and crew in the remake, fear not (or do) because the first trailer for ‘Chucky’ has been unleashed!
‘Chucky’ is a 10-episode series that will premiere on Syfy Channel on the 12th of October. Written by original creator Don Mancini, Brad Dourif returns to voice the possessed killer doll as he’s found in a yard sale by an unsuspecting teenager. As expected, the body count piles up as the small town is thrown into chaos.
When talking about horror franchises, this one always seems to be left out, which is a shame. This is one of my favourite horror franchises and one that doesn’t seem to have a bad entry (yes, I even enjoy 2004’s ‘Seed of Chucky’). And, despite enjoying the remake, I also understand Mancini’s frustration at Universal Pictures’ decision to make the film behind his back. A TV series is an unexpected, but very welcome, decision when it comes to continuing the franchise and, with eight films in the original series, the show knows exactly what fans want: tongue-in-cheek humour, interesting kills and Chucky’s rude and uncaring attitude. Overall, it looks brutal but a lot of fun!
Despite the new owner constantly keeping Chucky around, even in school, not making sense yet, I’m looking forward to ‘Chucky’. This will always be a franchise that I will happily return to, as it never disappoints me. I’m also curious to know what a Chucky TV show will be like; I only hope it’s available in the UK too!
‘Chucky’ premieres on the Syfy Channel on the 12th of October 2021.
