Season 1 is led by a group of young stars including Zackary Arthur, Teo Briones, Bjorgvin Arnarson, and Alyvia Alyn Lind along with Devon Sawa, Lexa Doig, and Barbara Alyn Woods. Joining them are franchise vets Brad Dourif, Jennifer Tilly, and Fiona Dourif, who reprised their roles as the voice of the titular killer doll, Tiffany, and Nica Pierce, respectively.
Chucky is “set in an idyllic American town thrown into chaos as a series of horrifying murders sweep through and threaten to expose the town’s hypocrisies and secrets, all of which come on the heels of a vintage Chucky doll turning up at a suburban yard sale,” reads the official synopsis. “At the same time, the titular doll must deal with the arrival of enemies and allies from his past who threaten to expose the truth behind the killings and the untold origins as a seemingly ordinary child turned demonic killer.”
Chucky is created and executive produced by franchise creator Don Mancini, who is also serving as the showrunner and directed the pilot episode. The series is produced by UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group, and also executive produced by David Kirschner, Nick Antosca, Alex Hedlund, and Harley Peyton.
