Cult of Chucky, the 7th Chapter in the enduring Child’s Play franchise launched by Tom Holland and Don Mancini in 1988, certainly left the door wide opened for a sequel. But we heard rumors in February suggesting Mancini was taking Chucky to the small screen for a TV series as opposed to another feature film.

Though we haven’t gotten anything official in quite some time, we’re hearing that a potential TV series is still very much a possibility. Word comes from the voice of Chucky himself, Brad Dourif; while this seems like a most reliable source, his information is secondhand. It’s also a bit less than substantial.
Brad Dourif recently confirmed that there is still the possibility of the character coming to the small screen.
“I haven’t spoken to [series creator] Don [Mancini],” Dourif shared with Den of Geek. “My daughter [who starred in Cult of Chucky] is very close to him, they speak almost every day. She assures me that the TV series, at least, is something that there’s a lot of interest in. I don’t know if that’s gonna happen or not, but it certainly could.”
So, there you have it, folks! Chucky is coming to the small screen, maybe. So, that will possibly be awesome.
Official Synopsis: Chucky returns to terrorize his human victim, Nica, who is confined to an asylum for the criminally insane. Meanwhile, the killer doll has some scores to settle with his old enemies, with the help of his former wife.
