As we dive into the chilling narrative of CHUCKY, be ready to confront the darkness within. The series is set in the city of Hackensack, New Jersey. The series shows the events after 3 weeks of CULT OF CHUCKY. Jake Wheeler, a 14 year old teen, brought home a doll from a yard sale for his art project. The doll is none other than Chucky.
The doll is possessed by the evil spirit of a notorious serial killer Charles Lee Ray. Jake discovers the truth that the doll is a form of pure evil. A series of eerie events happens in the neighbourhood and Jake becomes the prime suspect. Jake’s friends are also linked to these events in some way or another. The doll has unleashed chain killings in the town.
Chucky convinced Jake to kill his dad. Another target of Chucky is Lexy. She is a school bully and torments Jake but she later becomes friends with Jake and Devon.
