Some really good news here for fans of Child’s Play as its been announced that Fiona Dourif is to reprise her role as Nica in the upcoming CHUCKY TV show.
Dourif first appeared in the franchise in 2013’s Curse of Chucky and returned for 2017’s Cult of Chucky, becoming the new lead and foe to the iconic doll.
This is interesting as fans are aware that CULT ended up with a cliff-hanger as the finale revealed that the spirit of Charles Lee Ray had possessed Nica, taking the plot into a new dynamic twist that hopefully this show will now embrace.
Of course Fiona is the daughter of Brad, who has voiced Chucky from the very beginning, only being replaced by Mark Hamill in the 2019 remake, which, hey, we won’t mention here.
Creator Don Mancini has already released the synopsis of what to expect when CHUCKY, an eight part season, hits SYFY sometime later this year.
“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.”
