The Child’s Play franchise centers on a toy doll named Chucky that becomes possessed by the soul of a serial killer.

A Child’s Play TV series is also reportedly in development from franchise creator Don Mancini and franchise producer David Kirschner. The series is said to be a continuation of the existing story rather than a reboot.
