Chucky TV show teaser features return of an old friend

Given his diminutive stature, it makes a kind of sense that the killer doll at the center of theChild’s Playhorror movie franchise should be making his way to the small screen, in the form of the upcoming showChucky. And on Thursday, franchise overlordDon Mancinimarked the release of the first teaser for the series on social media.

“AN EVIL TOO GREAT TO PLAY ON JUST ONE NETWORK,”he tweeted, highlighting that the show will air on USA and Syfy.

It wasannouncedin January that Syfy had given a straight-to-series order toChucky, which follows the murderous exploits of the red-haired doll possessed by the spirit of a serial killer.

In this rebooted version of Chucky’s story, a small town is terrorized by a string of murders following the appearance of a vintage Chucky doll at a yard sale. Friends and enemies from Chuck’s past may reveal the truth behind the killings and shed light on the doll’s “untold origins.”
