Syfy and USA have shared a brand new trailer for its forthcoming horror series, The Legacy of Chucky, during its panel at Comic-Con@Home.

A followup to 2017’s Cult of Chucky, the TV series stars Zackary Arthur as Jake Webber, who is described by Child’s Play franchise creator Don Mancini as “a 14-year-old gay boy who’s bullied and sort of lost after the recent death of his mother.” After purchasing Chucky at a yard sale, he seemingly begins to succumb to the evil doll’s influence as Chucky begins a series of murders that reveal the town’s “deep hypocrisies and hidden secrets.”

“One of the things I wanted to do was bring [the franchise] back to its Child’s Play roots and have the protagonists [be] kids,” Mancini told EW. “But since, with the first couple of movies, we’d already delved into having little kids I wanted to explore something different, so this time we’re exploring young teenagers.”

Joining Arthur are Teo Briones, Alyvia Alyn Lind Björgvin Arnarson, Lexa Doig and Devon Sawa, as well as franchise staples Jennifer Tilly (Tiffany in Bride of Chucky), Fiona Dourif (Nica in Curse of Chucky and Cult of Chucky), Alex Vincent (Andy in the original Child’s Play), Christine Elise McCarthy (Kyle in Child’s Play 2) and Brad Dourif, who is reprising his role as Chucky.

Watch the trailer above. The Legacy of Chucky premieres October 12.
