The full official trailer for USA and SyFy’s upcoming Chucky TV series just dropped during Comic-Con@Home, and everything about it looks like a true return to form for the iconic Child’s Play killer, but best of all, right out of the gate it promises a “Halloween to remember” for our new protagonist!
The Comic-Con trailer opens with an ’80s-style narrator saying, “Everyone has a Halloween they’ll always remember, and this is Jake’s,” as trick or treaters and neighborhood decorations are seen before we meet the show’s main new character, Jake, played by Zackary Arthur, who finds a Good Guy doll at a yard sale. There is lots more Halloween imagery glimpsed throughout the trailer, including a costume party.
In addition to saying some of his signature phrases, Chucky teases “the World Series of slaughter.”
The show appears be a total love letter to longtime Child’s Play franchise fans, with franchise creator Don Mancini at the helm and all of the most beloved actors from the previous films reprising their roles. Brad Dourif is back as Chucky, along with Jennifer Tilly back as Tiffany from Bride of Chucky and Seed of Chucky, as well as Alex Vincent as Andy Barclay from Child’s Play and Child’s Play 2, Christine Elise as Kyle from Child’s Play 2, and Fiona Dourif as Nica Pierce from Course of Chucky and Cult of Chucky. Devon Sawa (Idle Hands, Final Destination) also stars, joining the franchise, along with Zackary Aruther, Lexa Doig, Bjorgvin Arnarson, Alyvia Alyn Lind, and Teo Briones.
The series picks up after the events in 2017’s Cult of Chucky, and it promises to reveal more about Charles Lee Ray’s history before his soul was trapped in a Good Guy doll.
The 15-minute “Legacy of Chucky” featurette, which you can watch below, premiered today during San Diego Comic-Con’s Comic-Con@Home online event on YouTube, featuring all of the above cast members and Mancini discussing how this new series will respect and reward fans of the films.
Chucky premieres on October 12 on USA and SyFy.
