TV show description:
A dark comedy and horror series, the Chucky TV show is based on the Child’s Play film franchise and was adapted by creator Don Mancini.
In the story, an idyllic American town is thrown into chaos after a vintage “Good Guy” doll turns up at a suburban yard sale and is purchased by teen Jake Wheeler (Arthur). It turns out to be none other than Chucky (voice of Dourif), a doll that holds the soul of a deceased and vicious serial killer.
Soon, everyone in the town must grapple with a series of horrifying murders that begin to expose the town’s deep hypocrisies and hidden secrets. Meanwhile, friends and foes from Chucky’s past creep back into his world and threaten to expose the truth behind his mysterious origins as a seemingly ordinary child who somehow became this notorious monster.
Other characters include Jake’s cousin, Junior Wheeler (Briones); Junior’s girlfriend, Lexy Cross (Lind); and Jake’s crush and best friend, Devon Evans (Arnarson). From Chucky’s past, there’s paraplegic Nica Pierce (Fiona Dourif); archnemesis Andy Barclay (Vincent); Andy’s foster sister, Kyle (Elise); and Chucky’s former lover, Tiffany Valentine (Tilly).
