Casting for the upcoming Chucky television series has been announced!
USA Network and Syfy are teaming up to bring the iconic movie villain from the Child’s Play series to the small screen.
Jennifer Tilly is confirmed to reprise her role as Tiffany Valentine from the movies and Devon Sawa has joined the cast in an unspecified role. They will both be recurring stars on the series, according to Deadline.
Four teen leads have also been announced: Transparent‘s Zackary Arthur, Ratched‘s Teo Briones, Daybreak‘s Alyvia Alyn Lind, and The Seventh Day‘s Björgvin Arnarson.
In the television series, “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. Meanwhile, the arrival of enemies — and allies — from Chucky’s past threatens to expose the truth behind the killings, as well as the demon doll’s untold origins as a seemingly ordinary child who somehow became this notorious monster.”
Don Mancini, the creator of the Child’s Play franchise, is also creating the TV series and will serve as showrunner and executive producer.
