chucky tv series update

Child’s Play is a very fluid franchise, and that might be the key to its longevity. While other horror franchises have died off, Child’s Play is still going strong, even in the wake of an unnecessary remake. Don Mancini, who has been behind the series since the beginning, is now bringing the story of the killer Good Guy doll to TV with the Chucky TV series. The series remains shrouded in secrecy, but in a new interview, Mancini promises that the show will combine the more straightforward horror elements of the first film while also honoring the ever-changing tone of the sequels.

Child's Play early buzz

The original Child’s Play came out 31 years ago, and was about a doll named Chucky who was imbued with the soul of a twisted serial killer. Now it’s 2019 and the doll is back in a new reboot, but as director Lars Klevberg (Polaroid) told me a few months ago, “This is a different take. That was one of the biggest things for me, why I wanted to jump on this, because it meant that I could create Chucky as a character looking at the world for the first time.”

The film recently screened for critics in New York, Austin, and Los Angeles, and reviews are starting to arrive. So what’s the word? Does this version of Chucky work, or should he have stayed in the box? Check out the Child’s Play early buzz below.
