It looks like 'Child's Play' creator Don Mancini's TV series based on the franchise is eying a 2020 launch. Replying to a fan on Twitter recently, Mancini said "TV Series! 2020!": TV series! 2020! \ud83d\ude00\u2014 Don Mancini (@RealDonMancini) April 27, 2019 The series is being produced for the Syfy channel, with "Chucky" being the working title. Brad Dourif is expected to return as the voice of Chucky. Nick Antosca will produce the show. He recently spoke to Slash Film and discussed the project: \u201cThe series is going to be closer to the tone of the first two movies in the series,\u201d Antosca said. \u201cIt\u2019s going to go back to a sort of classic scare.\u201d As for whether or not the series will take place in the same universe as the previous films, here's what Antosca had to say: \u201cIt\u2019s consistent with that mythology, but it\u2019s a whole new story,\u201d Antosca said. \u201cSo you could come into it without knowing anything about the previous stuff and get into it. But it is consistent with all the mythology that has come before, so it is in canon.\u201d It was also noted that franchise stars Jennifer Tilly and Fiona Dourif have been left an open door to be part of the series as well.
