Production on Chucky, the new series based on the popular Child’s Play franchise set to run on both USA and Syfy, has been moved to 2021.
Deadline is reporting that due to pandemic production restrictions, the series which was set to start filming this year will be moved to next year’s production schedule. They hope to still be able to air the series in 2021, as well.
The premise of the series finds the classic Chucky doll appearing in a suburban yard sale. Of course, all hell breaks loose, and the all-American town finds itself in turmoil as a series of murders exposes the secrets and lies just beneath their shiny veneer.
Brad Dourif, the actor who has voiced Chucky since the first Child’s Play film back in 1988, has signed onto the production and franchise mainstay Jennifer Tilly has joined, as well. There are rumors that other franchise regulars will show up, but none have been confirmed.
The Child’s Play focuses on killer Charles Lee Ray who, on the run from the police, used a magic ritual to place his soul into a child’s doll. Being in that short, plastic body didn’t do anything to curb his desire to kill, however, and he’s hacked and slashed his way through numerous entries in the franchise.
