Chucky

Trivia: Creator Don Mancini has said that the series will be taking heavy tonal and stylistic cues from the film "Child's Play 2," as that entry in the series is considered a fan favorite. This includes basing Chucky's look on the design seen in that film, as opposed to redesigns from later films in the series.

Goin' to the Chapel - S2-E7

Trivia: SPOILERS: In season two, episode seven, when Father Bryce explodes and it is shown over and over from a multitude of angles, it is a direct homage to the 1978 film "The Fury." At the end of that film, a character explodes in a similar fashion, being shown over and over again from different angles. Series creator Don Mancini has discussed how much he enjoys "The Fury" in the past, and has thrown in some subtle references to it in the "Chucky" franchise.

The Sinners Are Much More Fun - S2-E2

Trivia: Father Bryce at one point offers the advice "Idle hands are the devil's playground." While it is a fairly common phrase, this is also a subtle reference to the 1999 horror-comedy movie "Idle Hands," which starred Devon Sawa... who also happens to play Father Bryce. Hence the phrase being included and delivered with a knowing smile by Sawa. Around the time the episode aired, Sawa also uploaded a video on his social media of him briefly reprising his character Anton from the film.

Trivia: "Child's Play 3" director Jack Bender ran into showrunner/Chucky creator Don Mancini while the show was in production. Bender asked Mancini how much more realistic Chucky would be, given 30 years had passed since his movie. Mancini shocked Bender by explaining that fans had made it clear they loved Chucky's classic simple, jerky movements since they were inherently more doll-like, and didn't want him to "evolve" too much. So they purposely used simple effects so he wouldn't be "too realistic."

Trivia: Nathan Cross, the long-suffering husband of Mayor Michelle Cross, is played by Michael Therriault. Therriault actually also appeared in the film "Cult of Chucky" as the villainous Dr. Foley. Spoiler Alert: Both characters meet a grizzly fate at the hands of Chucky.

Trivia: The show's main character is a gay teenager named Jake who is bullied and mistreated. Chucky's creator Don Mancini has stated that Jake is partially inspired by his own upbringing, as he realised he was gay as a teenager and dealt with some similar issues growing up. (Albeit, he obviously didn't deal with a supernaturally possessed doll.) Mancini has also stated that Chucky is meant to be a metaphor for childhood bullying in the series, as he mistreats and manipulates Jake.
