When Alyvia Alyn Lind was forced to exit her role as Faith Newman on “The Young and the Restless” earlier this year fans were sorry to see her go but excited to see where her career would take her
After landing a lucrative role in “Chucky,” the first TV series adaptation in the “Child’s Play” horror film franchise, fans of actress Alyvia Alyn Lind (ex-Faith Newman, “The Young and the Restless”) will finally get to see what the actress has been up to since leaving Genoa City when the show premieres on Tuesday, October 12 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on both the SYFY/USA cable networks.
In preparation for the show’s launch, the official “Chucky” trailer has dropped and a lot of interesting characteristics have been added, not to mention the return of some original cast members from the original film series reprising their roles, including Alex Vincent as Andy Barclay and Christine Elise as Kyle, Andy’s foster sister from “Child’s Play 2.”
Instead of focusing on a child and his toy doll, we’re introduced to a group of teenagers led by social outcast Jake Webber (played by Zackary Arthur) who is just discovering his sexuality and his attraction to Devon Evans (played by Bjorgvin Arnarson). Lind plays Lexy Cross in the series.
After Jake buys Chucky at a yard sale, he begins to realize that things aren’t as they seem when his idyllic American town starts to get thrown into chaos after the vintage “Good Guy” brings danger to everyone he knows. Soon, Jake must grapple with a series of horrifying murders that begin to expose the town’s deep hypocrisies and hidden secrets. Meanwhile, friends and foes from Chucky’s past creep back into his world and threaten to expose the truth behind his mysterious origins as a seemingly ordinary child who somehow became the notorious monster, Charles Lee Ray.
“Chucky” is produced by Universal Cable Productions (UCP) and executive produced by creator Don Mancini, David Kirschner, Nick Antosca, Alex Hedlund, and Harley Peyton. Mancini, who penned the film franchise, wrote the television adaptation and directed the first episode, and also serves as showrunner.
