This year’s Cult of Chucky, written and directed by franchise creator Don Mancini, is expected to firmly merge the continuities of the early Child’s Play films with more recent installments Bride of Chucky, Seed of Chucky and Curse of Chucky. Of course, the latter film brought Tiffany back into the mix, and both Nica Pierce and Andy Barclay will join her in the brand new sequel.
But will Tiffany’s twins, Glen and Glenda (who started out in the body of one very confused doll), also be back? Mancini just tweeted out a picture of the Glen/Glenda doll, which some are interpreting as a tease about their impending return. It may seem like a big leap to get that from a simple tweet, but we wouldn’t at all be surprised if Mancini has this trick up his sleeve.
For now, we can only speculate!

Brad Dourif is confirmed to once again provide Chucky’s voice, while his daughter, Fiona, will be reprising her Curse role. Also returning are Summer H. Howell (Curse of Chucky), Jennifer Tilly (who became female doll Tiffany in Bride of Chucky before it transferred its soul into the body of actress Jennifer Tilly in Seed of Chucky) and Alex Vincent, star of the first two Child’s Play films who returned in a shocking post-credits sequence in Curse.
Here’s the official synopsis that came with the initial announcement trailer.
“Confined to an asylum for the criminally insane for the past four years, Nica Pierce (Fiona Dourif) is erroneously convinced that she, not Chucky, murdered her entire family. But when her psychiatrist introduces a new therapeutic “tool” to facilitate his patients’ group sessions — an all-too-familiar “Good Guy” doll with an innocently smiling face — a string of grisly deaths begins to plague the asylum, and Nica starts to wonder if maybe she isn’t crazy after all. Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent), Chucky’s now-grown-up nemesis from the original Child’s Play, races to Nica’s aid. But to save her he’ll have to get past Tiffany (Oscar-nominee Jennifer Tilly), Chucky’s long-ago bride, who will do anything, no matter how deadly or depraved, to help her beloved devil doll.”
Cult of Chucky is expected this October through Universal Home Entertainment.
