Get ready for a killer good time in the new series trailer for Chucky. The new TV series from Child’s Play creator Dan Mancini and featuring the voice of Brad Dourif premieres just in time for Halloween — October 12th — on USA Network and Syfy on October 12th.
Chucky stars veteran child star Zackary Arthur (Transparent) as well as the voice of Dourif, who returns to breathe murderous life into an all-too-animated object. The series follows Jake (Arthur) a quirky kid with a taste for retro oddities who picks up a fun doll at a garage sale. Sure, a butcher’s knife goes missing around the time of the purchase, but young Jake doesn’t know anything about that. Everything seems normal, until the doll blinks it’s eyes and mutters the five most terrifying words in the English language: “Hi! I’m Chucky. Wanna play?”
Soon, the doll’s strange behavior sows distrust among Jake’s family and friends, until there’s no one he can trust with his terrible secret. Besides that, kids at school are starting to bully Jake for his age-inappropriate toy, and there’s no telling how he’ll respond. “It’s kill or be killed,” Chucky says. “Everybody’s gotta choose.”
