Production on Don Mancini and Nick Antosca’s new series Chucky has been pushed to 2021.
Filming was originally set to take place in Toronto this autumn, but production shutdowns have made this impossible. However, producers remain hopeful that they’ll still be able to complete the series in time for its planned 2021 debut.
A canonical part of the original franchise, Chucky will see a vintage Good Guy doll turn up at a suburban yard sale, throwing an idyllic American town into chaos as a series of horrifying murders begin to expose its hypocrisies and secrets. Meanwhile, the arrival of enemies—and allies—from Chucky’s past threatens to expose the truth behind the killings, as well as the demon doll’s untold origins as a seemingly ordinary child who somehow became this notorious monster.
Brad Dourif will return to voice the notorious killer doll in the series. Jennifer Tilly, who plays Tiffany, has also confirmed she’ll be back.
Chucky will air on the USA Network and Syfy, hopefully in 2021.
