The headline may have readers thinking, “Why would F-Bombs by Checky surprise anyone, the reason is that the upcoming Child’s Play series is the transition to the small screen on the SYFY and USA Network’s Chucky TV series. Despite the move to SYFY and USA, it will not stop the character from refraining from using a few curse words.
Chucky creator Don Mancini spoke about the upcoming TV series along with executive producer Nick Antosca at Comic-Con@Home’s Scary Good TV and Horror’s Top Showrunners panel, and he explained the importance of Chucky remaining true to the character,
“When Nick and I set up Chucky at Syfy, one of the first things we had to make sure of was that Chucky could drop his F-bombs, because it’s such an intrinsic part of his character, it would just seem wrong if he couldn’t…Fortunately, before we signed on the dotted line, they conformed, yes, he can. I think he can drop, like, eight F-bombs per episode, or something like that — eight to ten, something like that — and I think there’s variations depending on what time it airs.”
The new series will focus on events,
“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. Meanwhile, the arrival of enemies and allies from Chucky’s past threatens to expose the truth behind the killings, as well as the demon doll’s untold origins as a seemingly ordinary child who somehow became this notorious monster.”
Chucky will be coming to SYFY and USA Network in 2021.
