Casting news continues to come in for the all new Chucky TV series, based on the popular Child’s Play franchise.
Today we’ve learned that Alex Vincent and Christine Elise McCarthy have officially joined the series to reprise their roles of Andy Barclay and his foster sister, Kyle, respectively.
Vincent appeared in the first two franchise films and returned for the two most recent films: Curse of Chucky and Cult of Chucky. Elise appeared in Cult of Chucky, as well.
The news comes on the heels of other casting announcements that have included the return of franchise favorites Jennifer Tilly, Fiona Dourif, and Brad Dourif alongside Devon Sawa and Lexa Doig.
The series synopsis reads: 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.
Produced by UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group, Chucky is executive produced by creator and showrunner Don Mancini (Hannibal, SYFY’s CHANNEL ZERO), David Kirschner (Hocus Pocus, Frailty), Harley Peyton (Twin Peaks, SYFY’s CHANNEL ZERO), and Nick Antosca (Hulu’s The Act, SYFY’s CHANNEL ZERO) and Alex Hedlund via their banner Eat the Cat, through his overall deal with the studio.
