The First Full Trailer For SyFy's Chucky Series Is Lighting Up Twitter

Everyone's favorite killer doll is headed to the small screen. The "Child's Play" franchise has seen many sequels, a reboot, and even comics, but this marks the first time Chucky will be the star of a TV series. The upcoming show is a direct continuation of the original "Chucky" movies and takes place within the same universe, with stars like Alex Vincent set to reprise his role as Andy Barclay, and Jennifer Tilly making an appearance as Tiffany — not to mention the return of the original voice of Chucky, Brad Dourif.

"Chucky" will center around a boy named Jake Webber (Zackary Arthur), who finds the infamous Chucky doll at a yard sale. The "Child's Play" franchise's creator Don Mancini furher described the upcoming series to Entertainment Weekly, describing Jake as "a 14-year-old gay boy who's bullied and sort of lost after the recent death of his mother. He's a young artist [making] sculptures with doll parts. He finds Chucky at a yard sale and buys him, but it turns out that he gets much more than he bargained for."

The first trailer for the new "Chucky" series just dropped, and fans have a lot to say.

Tons of fans are excited to see Chucky on the small screen

After the new full-length trailer for "Chucky" premiered, fans took to Twitter to share their opinions. A user with the handle @UptrendMender commented on Chucky's new look, writing, "Damn, this is the best he's looked since Child's Play 3," and another user named @RandyProctor7 mirrored that sentiment, noting, "Glad to see he looks like his [old self]. Chucky looks so classic. Looking forward to this." Fans are also excited for the return of Brad Dourif, like @FanofGamingGame, who writes, "Mark Hamill, easily one of the best voice actors to ever do it and he did his best to make Chucky his own, but man is it good to hear Brad again!"

There are also plenty of comments from those who were initially skeptical of the "Chucky" TV series whose minds were changed after seeing the trailer. A user named @krypticghostx writes, "I'm going to be honest, when I first heard they were doing a series on this I wasn't so sure, but looks awesome!" while another user named @BFatedscythe777 confesses, "I was actually worried this was gonna be bad. SyFy isn't exactly the best for content lately, but this looks phenomenal!"

"Chucky" is headed to USA and SYFY on October 12.
