Serial Chucky will be set in a beautiful small American town that finds its way into chaos when a series of gruesome murders sweeps in and threatens to expose the hypocrisy and secrets of the city.

At the same time, the demon puppet must deal with the arrival of enemies and allies from his past who threaten to uncover the truth behind the murders.
Series creator and executive producer Don Mancini also revealed new details about the main characters and the reasons why they decided to create the series.
“The main character of the series is a 14-year-old gay boy who is bullied and disoriented after the recent death of his mother,” said Mancini. “He is a young artist who makes sculptures using parts from various used dolls. He found Chucky at a secondhand shop and then bought it.” He continued, “One of the things I want to do is take him [franchise] goes back to Child’s Play roots and makes the main protagonist a teenager.”
