The 'Child's Play' makers have finally decided to scare their audience via the small screen. Just like the movie, the series also portrays the vintage murderous doll with a knife. The makers haven't rebooted the '80s kitsch design of the doll as it says in the 1998 movie, "A true Classic never goes out of style." The writer of the film, Don Mancini, shared an image online that read, 'Chucky Did It', leaving all his fans thinking about the little murderer Chucky. Here's everything we know about the series.
