The upcoming Chucky TV show has finished production. The spin-off from the Child's Play horror franchise premieres on SyFy and USA Network on October 12.
The news that Chucky has completed shooting comes via showrunner and series creator Don Mancini, who posted an image of a clapperboard on the final day. He accompanied it with a caption that reads, "THAT’S A WRAP! Chucky wants to honest the f*** thank everyone, in front of and behind the camera, on this f***ing momentous occasion..."

The first Chucky trailer was released last month, which showed the series's suburban setting and hinted at some of the murderous mayhem that possessed doll Chucky will be getting up to. The show follows on from 2017's The Cult of Chucky, which was the seventh movie in the long-running franchise. It is, however, unconnected to the 2019 Child's Play reboot movie.
The cast of Chucky is a mix of new actors and names that will be familiar to the series. New stars include Zackary Arthur (Transparent), Bjorgvin Arnarson (The Seventh Day), Teo Briones (Ratched), Lexa Doig (Stargate SG-1), and Devon Sawa (Final Destination).
Brad Dourif returns as the voice of Chucky, and he's joined by Jennifer Tilly, who plays Tiffany, Chucky's equally dangerous bride. Other returning cast members include Alex Vincent as Andy, the young boy from the first two Child's Play movies, Christine Elise McCarthy as Andy's foster sister Kyle from Child's Play 2, and Fiona Dourif as Nina Pierce.
