As Chucky returns for the second part of its third season in just a few weeks, however, it was only a matter of time before this iconic slasher franchise would return to the big screen. 

Now, Chucky creator Don Mancini has confirmed that a new film in the franchise is in early development. 

When talking about the future of Chucky on the Scream Dream podcast, Mancini teased, “I mean at this point though if it's only Chucky I'm totally cool with that. I have other things I want to do. I'm working on a new pilot.” 

However, then he goes on to say what fans of this demonic doll all want to hear: “ I'm also actually in the early stages of working on a new Chucky movie. At this point my goal is just to keep working, whatever keeps me working I'm very happy."

There are no plot details at this point, but the mere thought of Mancini working on a new cinematic killing spree for Chucky will warm every horror fan's heart. 

While Chucky has been enjoying three incredible seasons on TV, this slasher started its life on the big screen with Child’s Play in 1988. 

Mancini has written every Chucky movie (seven in total so far) — excluding the 2019 remake of the original film — and directed the last three sequels in the series. This includes "Seed of Chucky", "Cult of Chucky", and "Curse of Chucky".

There hasn’t been an entry in the main continuity since 2017. However, Mancini and Chucky have found their footing on TV, where their Syfy series has quickly become one of the best horror shows on television. 

In three seasons, they have pushed the boundaries of the medium with gnarly kills, a great blend of slasher thrills, and gut-busting comedy. With Chucky invading the White House this season, it's impossible to tell where this murder-happy doll will do next. 

"Chucky" Season 3 Part 2 is premiering on Syfy and USA on April 10.
