The most recent Child’s Play/Chucky endeavor was last year’s reboot film featuring Mark Hamill as Chucky’s voice. That movie was neither decisively a fan favorite nor a critical dud. It did indeed make money, even I was curious to see it’s new take on the infamous doll. Where it went wrong was that it launched the same weekend as Toy Story 4, with a marketing campaign showing Chucky preying on Pixar’s beloved characters.
Chucky, the homicidal star of seven films over the past 30 years, will finally star in a TV series for SyFy. The network announced the order but not a premiere date in a news release during the Television Critic’s Association winter press tour.
Is this long overdue or is it about time?
I think we’re all are curious to what a Child’s Play tv show could potentially bring to the big screen. I’m officially intrigued.
