A Chucky Extravaganza! feat. Don Mancini

Sorry, Jack...Chucky's back! With the second season of Chucky premiering on SyFy next week, we thought we'd take a look back at the franchise that spawned the successful television series. And who better to walk us through memory lane than the creator of the franchise himself: Don Mancini!

Join us as we do a deep dive into the franchise with Mancini (specifically the entries from Bride of Chucky and onward), covering all manner of topics like, oh, we don't know, turning one of the biggest horror franchises into a super queer empowerment story?

We discuss things like "too much Jennifer Tilly" (what?!), the return of Glen/Glenda (and why they've been absent from the franchise for almost 20 years), retcons, Britney Spears, Katherine Heigl and how Hannibal paved the way for the Chucky series. Not watching Chucky? Chucky says "move your ass" and hop to it!
