The series will be executive produced by franchise creator and showrunner Don Mancini (Hannibal), David Kirschner (Hocus Pocus), and Nick Antosca (Hulu’s The Act). Emmy-nominated Harley Peyton (Twin Peaks) will also serve as an executive producer. Mancini is set to direct the first episode of the show.

In this new installment, “after a vintage Chucky doll turns up at a suburban yard sale, an idyllic American town is thrown into chaos as a series of horrifying murders begin to expose the town’s hypocrisies and secrets.”

Chucky premieres on Syfy and USA Network sometime in 2021.
