We have a quick new taste of the upcoming take on the evil doll horror of Chucky that’s heading to TV soon, and a release date.

This television incarnation has been penned by the guy behind the original movie and its wealth of sequels, Don Mancini, and is set to air in the US from October 12.

The story goes a lot like this: “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. Meanwhile, the arrival of enemies — and allies — from Chucky’s past threatens to expose the truth behind the killings, as well as the demon doll’s untold origins as a seemingly ordinary child who somehow became this notorious monster.”

Surely they’d know by now just to flick the little switch on his back from “evil” to “good”?
