With reports pouring in of various actors testing positive for COVID-19 (Robert Pattinson, Dwayne Johnson) it would appear USA/Syfy Channels continuation of the franchise has been put on hold.

Headed by Don Mancini and Nick Antosca, Chucky looks to be a continuation of the existing franchise with the original talent still involved. It's said to continue the original Horror vibe of the first few movies, Chucky promises to be a thrill ride for any die hard fans of the franchise.
“With this TV show, our mission has been to preserve the straightforward scariness of the original filmor the first couple of films,” Mancini explained to Syfy Wire back in May. “But at the same time, continue on with this ever-expanding tapestry of consistent story that we’ve spun over the course of seven movies and 30-some years. I think fans are really gonna love to see the new characters that we introduce into this realm and just to see how they came off of our classic characters. Not just Chucky, but some of the others that you may be hoping to see. There’s a good chance they may turn up.”
