In the world of reboots and reimaginings, Child’s Play looks to be joining in the fun. According to an interview with Bloody Disgusting, Child’s Play Producer David Kirschner and writer Don Manchini confirm a Chucky television series is in the works and was deliberately set up at the end of the last film. Apparently, the Chucky TV Series is NOT a reboot but an 8 part, hour long continuation of the story, and Dorif will return as the voice of Chucky!
“We plan to use Child’s Play in the title,” Mancini explained. “We want to definitely signal that we are going dark, darker than ever before. It’s going to be very creepy. “
“…I’m incredibly excited about the series and to explore a world in which we’ve never done before. Don has taken the franchise in a wonderfully frightening direction,” Kirschner added. “He seems to outdo himself every time.”
It looks like Chucky really is our friend to the end.
