You can now add “TV” to the list of places that are no longer safe from the machinations of murderous dolls. Syfy announced on Tuesday that it is in development on a television adaptation of the long-running Chucky franchise, centered on a sentient children’s toy that becomes the vessel for the spirit of a serial killer.

Original writer Don Mancini has written every installment to date, and is set to become the creator on this new series.
