The show possibly worked so well because of the switch from a child protagonist to a young teenager. A teen dramedy, 'Chucky' deals with the difficulties of school, bullies, crushes, and sexuality. Extremely fun to watch, the show provides a backstory that the other films never came up with.
The first few episodes of 'Chucky' mainly introduces the important characters, which includes Jake’s classmates and Hackensack’s adults. Others in the cast include Jake’s new friend and first crush Devon, his cousin Junior, and Junior's girlfriend Lexi. The show's characters are incredibly compelling, they entertain fans and keep them hooked to their seats. However, the twist comes in when Jake buys Chucky at a yard sale, and the murder-doll makes its entry. Fans are even more excited as Brad Dourif has returned as the voice behind Chucky. Dourif, who is best known as Grimnir Wormtongue in Peter Jackson’s 'Lord of the Rings' movies, has been the voice behind the doll since the very first movie.
