Just In Time For Halloween, Chucky Makes A Horrifying Return | Celebrity Page

The iconic doll, Chucky, is bringing the horror like never before.


Chucky truly never seems to die. After many terrifying films, the iconic villain is now invading the small screen.

The new rendition of Chucky takes place in a small town that falls into chaos when the doll appears at a local yard sale.

Once several murders begin to occur, the town's secrets come to light.

Don Mancini, who created the Child's Play franchise, shared his excitement to expand into the TV realm.

"I was also thrilled at the prospect of having eight hours of story to fill, because that gave us an opportunity to delve into new characters and relationships to a degree we'd never been able to before," Mancini said.

Brad Dourif has been Chucky's voice since the very first film and opened up on the key differences seen in the series.

"The one thing that the series can do that film can't is to really explore a character in great depth."

But there's no Chucky without his equally terrifying bride, Tiffany Valentine-Ray. The original voice actress, Jennifer Tilly, shared her enthusiasm for still being part of Chucky's legacy.

"You're gonna see a lot of things that perhaps you didn't see in the other series, but it definitely is a continuation on Tiffany's journey."

The series may be a new adventure for its longtime creators, but it's a fresh start for the new actors joining the franchise.

Zachary Arthur plays the show's lead, Jake Wheeler, a teen boy who acquires Chucky as a toy.

"When I was in elementary school the kids who watched the Chucky movies were the cool kids, so it's just so surreal being on the series now."

Chucky premieres October 12th on both USA and SYFY.

Get ready Netflix fans! The platform just announced that two of its biggest stars are joining together for their newest movie.

Netflix revealed to TODAY that their latest film project is bringing Joey King, from The Kissing Booth, and Chase Stokes, from Outerbanks, together to play the two lead roles.

The new movie is an adaptation based off of the hit young adult sci-fi series Uglies by Scott Westerfield. Rumors about a film adaptation for the series have been circulating since the first novel's release, so Netflix's announcement comes as quite the pleasant surprise for fans.

Netflix had already teased that King was joining the cast for Uglies, however Stokes' involvement in the production was completely unknown until Tuesday. Along with announcing Stokes as the latest addition to the cast, Brianne Tju, from MTV's Scream, and Keith Powers, from the Freeform drama Famous in Love, will also be joining.

Uglies takes place in a dystopian society where beauty standards are taken to whole new extremes. Instead of getting your driver's permit at 16, teenagers are instead forced to get a complete reconstructive surgery, making them absolutely flawless--but that seems to be the flaw.

King is set to play the main protagonist of the film, Tally Youngblood, who will do literally anything to avoid her surgery. The roles of Stokes, Tju, and Powers still have yet to be released.

Uglies will be directed by Joseph McGinty Nichol, also known as McG, and Krista Vernoff is heading the screenplay adaptation. King will be executive producing the film alongside Jamie King, John Fox, and Scott Westerfield himself.

A premiere date for Uglies has yet to be disclosed.
