A “Child’s Play” TV Series In The Works

Ahead of the franchise’s 30th anniversary this year, Bloody Disgusting reports that filmmaker Don Mancini and producer David Kirschner are developing a TV series continuation of the “Child’s Play” films.

Mancini says the tone of the eight hour-long episodes is dark and disturbing and they have Brad Dourif returning to voice the role of Chucky. Surprisingly Kirschner says the series isn’t a reboot, but rather follows on from events “deliberately set up at end of the last movie”.

Seven films in the series have been released to date with 1988’s original and the fourth film “Bride of Chucky” arguably the most well known.
