Listen Up! It’s Rhyme Time For ‘Chucky’ TV Series

“I died…but I’m still gonna kill you.” Man, the previews for Chucky just keep getting creepier.

See for yourself–another teaser for the small-screen adaptation of the popular Child’s Play film franchise dropped this week, as reported by comicbook.com. Check out the demon doll’s eerie chant in the tweet from creator Don Mancini below.

The eight-episode Chucky series–with Mancini as showrunner and director of the pilot–recently wrapped production, and is headed to an Oct. 12 debut on both Syfy and USA Network. Doll creator David Kirschner and Nick Antosca join Mancini as executive producers.

Chucky will take place in a star-crossed town thrown into chaos “as a series of horrifying murders sweep through and threaten to expose the town’s hypocrisies and secrets” due to a vintage Chucky doll appearing at a yard sale.

And the murderous doll has concerns of its own. It is forced to deal with “the arrival of enemies from the past who threaten to expose the truth behind the killings and the untold origins of a seemingly ordinary child turned demonic killer.”

Chucky features franchise veterans Brad Dourif (once again giving voice to Chucky), Jennifer Tilly as Tiffany and Fiona Dourif as Nica. The ensemble also includes Zackary Arthur, Teo Briones, Bjorgvin Arnarson, Alyvia Alyn Lind, Devon Sawa, Lexa Doig and Barbara Alyn Woods.

The original 1988 Child’s Play–directed by Tom Holland from a screenplay he wrote with Mancini and John Lafia–gave birth to six sequels, a 2019 reboot, comic books, a video game and boatloads of toys and collectibles. The films were recognized with a Saturn Award for Best Horror Franchise, and have raked in more than $182 million at the box office.
