The Chucky television series on USA Network and SyFy Channel is not your father’s Child’s Play. In this anticipated series, the killer serial doll returns for another mass killing, but not in a single 2-hour film. For this time around, the story unfolds over many episodes as the team of teens played by Zachary Arthur, Teo Briones, Alyvia Alyn Lind, and Björgvin Arnarson must find a way to stop him.

The franchise, conceived by Don Mancini, was launched more than three decades ago with the movie Child’s Play back in 1988. It spawned six sequels and a recent remake of Child’s Play in 2019. Chucky became one of the most recognizable horror characters in cinema with Michael Myers, Freddie Krueger, and Jason.

At USA Network and Syfy Channel, the concept turned itself into a television series for the next generation of fans who are unfamiliar with this franchise. Rather than a reboot or remake, the television series adaptation serves as a sequel to the films (not counting the reboot of 2019).

Here’s a brief synopsis:

After a vintage Chucky doll turns up at a suburban yard sale, an idyllic American town is thrown into chaos as a series of horrifying murders begin to expose the town’s hypocrisies and secrets.
