Chucky TV Show Trailer Debuts At Comic-Con
The cast of USA/Syfy's Child's Play series revealed the first full trailer for the series.
When the upcoming Chucky TV series debuts on Syfy and USA, it will bring a number of important characters from the movie franchise back into the fold, with Child's Play 2's Christine Elise (Kyle) and Alex Vincent (Andy) returning in the latest chapter of this saga. Now, after a Chucky retrospective panel at Comic-Con 2021, we have a bit better idea of what to expect from the show--and have seen a brand-new trailer.
In the trailer, a teenager named Jake (Zackary Arthur) winds up with a Good Guy doll that, you guessed it, is possessed by the soul of serial killer Charles Lee Ray. Chucky's back, and this time, he's wreaking havoc on a teenager who already feels isolated from the world. Based on what's seen in the trailer, Chucky wastes no time in getting back to his murderous ways. You can take a look at it below.
More than the trailer, though, the entire 14-minute panel was stuffed with new footage from the TV show, revealing quite a bit. Chucky picks up after the events of the 2017 movie Curse of Chucky, where Nica (Fiona Dourif), possessed by Chucky, escaped a mental hospital with Tiffany (Jennifer Tilly). Check out the full panel at the end of this story.
The panel also made it clear that this Chucky is a lot more reminiscent of the older installments of the franchise, with the demonic doll seemingly going on a killing spree of young people all over town. And, yes, Brad Dourif once again returns to voice Chucky. Dourif has been the voice behind the doll for every Child's Play movie, save for the 2019 reboot, in which Mark Hammill took over.
Child's Play premieres October 12 on USA and Syfy.
