CHUCKY IN SPACE? DON MANCINI LEAVES IT UP TO THE FANS TO DECIDE

Posted on: February 23rd, 2024

If there’s one word to describe the history of the Child’s Play franchise and the character of Chucky it’s versatile.

The series began as grass-roots dark horror, before pivoting successfully into horror-comedy, all-out satire, and finally back to its dark roots.

With the move to television, the iconic character successfully tackled another hurdle that so many horror properties stumble over. USA and SyFy’s Chucky series is three seasons deep now, with the appetite still there for plenty more.

However, there is one horror icon hurdle Chucky hasn’t tackled… Would you like to see Chucky in space?

Whilst promoting 2017’s Cult of Chucky, series creator Don Mancini floated the idea of taking it there stating:
“We’ve found that he operates successfully in all kinds of different tones and sub-genres, whether it’s horror, or comedy, places in between. So, I think as a character he’s versatile enough and appealing enough and interesting enough that he could probably go anywhere…even into outer space.”

It’s been almost seven years since his comments, and at the 2024 Saturn Awards, Mancini was once again asked about the possibility of Chucky in space. The creator commented the following on if that was a viable step for the franchise:
“People keep asking that specific question. My response is, ‘Do you want him to go to space?’ Do you personally want him to go?’ I feel like if there’s enough of a demand for that, we’ll have to do that eventually. I don’t know how quickly. But I have an idea for that”

Interesting! So it’s up to us, folks! You heard the man, if you want to see Chucky cause carnage in outer space, let Don Mancini know!

Currently, Chucky season 3 is on hiatus with a two-part season being necessitated due to SAG-AFTRA strike action. Whilst no official word has been given on when the second half will air, a reliable source tells us May is looking good. More Chucky antics are on the way, just sit tight.
