Everyone’s favorite serial killer doll Chucky is set to make his small screen debut with the series named Chucky. It has started production and is slated to release this Fall on Syfy.’
The upcoming TV series will is likely to be connected to the original films. The series is slated to be 10 episodes long and will return to the franchise’s roots. Fans of the original franchise are no doubt eagerly waiting for its release.
After a long time waiting, fans finally got a taste of what is to come in the upcoming series as Syfy officially released the first teaser trailer for the show recently.
Images were also released that gave more insight into the upcoming television show. Now it seems more details about the show have been revealed and fans will be glad to know these.
While speaking to EW, Child’s Play and Chucky creator, Don Mancini revealed that Chucky will be allowed to swear a lot and drop a maximum of 10 F-bombs during each episode of the show.
Syfy and USA have a strong appetite, as strong as ours, for keeping the TV series tonally in check with what the fans want to see. Before we even sold the show, we had to confirm with the network that Chucky could drop his F-bombs. Chucky gets 10 F-bombs per episode, so that’s more than enough. It made me want to do an episode where Chucky, without ever having said anything off-color, at the end of the episode, he just turns to the camera and goes, ‘F—, f—, f—, f—, f—, f—, f—, f—, f—.’ It’s the inverse of the way Spielberg used Chucky in his cameo in Ready Player One. Since that was a PG-13, they had one mandated F-bomb at their disposal and Spielberg chose to deploy it with Chucky’s appearance, which I loved.
Several plot details for the upcoming 10-episode horror series was previously revealed as well. From what it seems, the series is certain to be a hit with fans of the franchise. The series will start airing on Syfy on October 12 and we will have to see whether it lives up to expectations or not.
