Based on the Child’s Play horror film franchise, The horror television series Chucky aired concurrently on Syfy and the USA Network on October 12, 2021.
The story begins when Teenager Jake Wheeler (Zackary Arthur) buys the Good Guy doll for an artistic project, only to learn whether the doll has been taken over by serial killer Charles Lee Ray (aka Chucky) or not.
Eventually, Jake is implicated in the doll’s murder spree in his hometown of Hackensack, New Jersey. “Chucky” creator Don Mancini, who had also directed and written several of the “Child’s Play” films, came up with the idea for this new series. Additionally, Mancini serves as the show’s executive producer and showrunner.
With a Tomatometer score of 90% and an audience score of 88% on Rotten Tomatoes, the first season of “Chucky” earned relatively positive reviews. The Globe and Mail’s John Doyle sums it up as: “‘Chucky’ is a delight; a warped, wise, funny and very droll series with bits of gore thrown in, but nothing gory enough to hurt your head. It’s a rigorous reinvention.”
According to TVLine, the show has been renewed for a second season, much to the delight of its devoted audience. Below we have mentioned everything we know so far about Chucky Season 2.
Release Date for Chucky Season 2
A release date hasn’t been announced yet because the renewal was only announced in November of 2021. However, executive producer and showrunner Don Mancini stated that the second season will be released next year.
Don Mancini stated, “We’re thrilled to start pulling the strings on the second season of puppet mayhem with ‘Chucky.’ Many thanks to our partners at the USA, Syfy, and UCP for their incredible support and guidance in bringing ‘Chucky’ to the small screen, bigger than ever. And to the fans, Chucky sends his still-undying thanks, and a message: ‘This isn’t over, not by a long shot. You better watch your backs in 2022!'”
There’s a good chance that Season 2 will premiere in October, right around Halloween, just like Season 1. For now, we’ll have to wait for more information before that speculation can be proven to be correct.
The Cast of Chucky Season 2
Actor Zackary Arthur, who portrays Jake Wheeler, the main character in “Chucky” leads the cast. Arthur is almost certain to return for the upcoming season. Arthur has also been in films titled “Kidding” and “Transparent”.
We can also expect the rest of the core cast to return for Season 2 – at least those who made it out of Season 1. Björgvin Arnarson and Alyvia Alyn Lind play Jake’s friends Devon Evans and Lexy Cross, respectively.
Tiffany Valentine (Jennifer Tilly), Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent), and Nica Pierce (Fiona Dourif) are among the characters we may expect to make a comeback.
Junior Wheeler, Jake’s antagonistic cousin, was played by Teo Briones in Season One. It’s improbable that Briones would return to the show because Junior didn’t survive in Season 1. However, Christine Elise, who played Kyle in Season 1, has a better chance of returning because her death wasn’t shown on-screen.
Last but not least, Brad Dourif lends his voice to the vile and depraved killer Chucky. As Chucky, Dourif has appeared in numerous “Child’s Play” films, including “Cult of Chucky,” in 2017, “Curse of Chucky” in 2013, and “Child’s Play” in 1988. For Season 2, we can assume that Dourif will be back.
The Plot of Chucky Season 2
Chucky Season 1 ended on November 30th, 2021, and there were lots of issues that might be explored in the second season of the television show. It turns out that Chucky, voiced by Brad Dourif, has been busy gathering a demon army while Andy and Kyle (Alex Vincent and Christine Elise) assume they’ve gotten rid of all the Chucky dolls in town.
Director Don Mancini remarked in an interview, “Once you get into your fourth decade in a franchise, it’s trying to forge ahead into unseen, unexplored territory. And the idea of multiple Chucky dolls always appealed to me.” As a result, Season 2 will no doubt bring us more of this bloodthirsty spirit.
Assuming Kyle, one of Chucky’s loved characters is indeed dead or merely thought to be so, fans are eager to learn what happens to her. Amputation of all her limbs by Tiffany (Jennifer Tilly) “in case” Chucky ever gets hold of her, leaves Nica Pierce (Fiona Dourif) in an extremely perilous position.
Alex Vincent told SyFy, “Don [Mancini], his vision is quite often not what we would expect it to be, even for people who know him as well as we do. And that keeps us guessing and keeps us surprised and keeps us entertained.”
For now, you can watch Season 1 on Peacock if you have a premium account.
