Chucky is coming to SYFY and USA Network, and the first teaser video reveals the show’s premiere date. SYFY released the teaser clip which you can see below, which shows Chucky’s eyes opening at a yard sale and Zackary Arthur’s main character buying him and walking off. It seems Chucky got his hands on some cutlery in the process.

The series is set to premiere on October 12th and stars Arthur along with Brad Dourif as the voice of Chucky, and a host of Child’s Play alum including Alex Vincent, Fiona Dourif, Christine Elise, and Jennifer Tilly.

Creator Tom Mancini spoke a bit more about the plot, telling EW, “The main character is a 14-year-old gay boy who’s bullied and sort of lost after the recent death of his mother. He’s a young artist [making] sculptures with doll parts. He finds Chucky at a yard sale and buys him, but it turns out that he gets much more than he bargained for.”

Mancini added, “One of the things that we pride ourselves on, and I think makes our franchise singular, is that we have spun a relatively consistent and coherent narrative over the course of 33 years … I deliberately ended Cult of Chucky on a series of cliffhangers, major cliffhangers, because I knew a TV series would be the ideal place to accommodate delving into the ramifications. So we begin the series introducing our new story, our new milieu, and then we start to bring the veteran characters into the story, and it all comes together for a big showdown.”

A full trailer for the show will be shown at [email protected] next week.
