The murderous doll Chucky is coming back to life in a TV series, and now actor Devon Sawa has joined the cast. Franchise creator Don Mancini has cast Sawa–who starred in Final Destination and played Stan in the Eminem music video–as a lead actor on the show.
Sawa confirmed Deadline’s report about his casting in a tweet. He joked, “I’d like to break my silence about Don Macini’s Chucky, by telling you absolutely nothing about the plot, my character, or anything else.”
I’d like to break my silence about @RealDonMancini’s “Chucky”, by telling you absolutely nothing about the plot, my character or anything else.

Jennifer Tilly, who played Tiffany Valentine in the earlier Chucky movies dating back to 1998, will reprise her character for the TV series. Tilly shared a behind-the-scenes photo from the set of Bride of Chucky. She also remarked, “Chucky is like that bad boyfriend who is so good that you just can’t quit him.”
