Don Mancini Reveals ‘Child’s Play’ TV Series; Plus His Thoughts on a World War II ‘Chucky’ Movie

Child’s Play/Chucky creator Don Mancini has revealed that a TV series is in development for the redheaded killer doll. Speaking with Bloody Disgusting, Mancini said how franchise producer David Kirschner and him are currently developing the TV series. Apparently, the end of the last film, Cult of Chucky, set up the TV series.

On the tone the series would take, Mancini explained:

“We plan to use Child’s Play in the title. We want to definitely signal that we are going dark, darker than ever before. It’s going to be very creepy.”

Mancini also revealed that Brad Dourif would return to voice Chucky, and that the series will be a continuation of the film series. The plan is to do an 8-part hour long series.

Additionally, Mancini revealed that he wouldn’t mind making a World War II centered Chucky film:

I would love to do a World War II-era Chucky movie; I think would be awesome. It would be legitimately interesting to see Chucky in that milieu with the iconography and the archetypes of the World War II movie; he could be great.”
