Chucky is an American horror television series created by Don Mancini who also serves as one of the executive producers and is adapted from the Child’s play film franchise. The show is developed by USA Network and Syfy and stars Zackary Arthur, Björgvin Arnarson, Alyvia Alyn Lind, Teo Briones, and Brad Dourif.
The series revolves around Chucky since he commits several mysterious murders in a quiet city in the United States. Besides Mancini, producer David Kirschner, Nick Antosca, Harley Peyton, and Alex Hedlund also serve as the executive producers.
The series first premiered on October 12, 2021, on Syfy and the USA Network. The series became very popular and praised a lot by viewers as well as critics and has an IMDB rating of 7.4 out of 10.
Given the love audience showered on the series which is a sequel to Cult of Chucky (the seventh film in the franchise), the announcement for the renewal of the series was made for its second season in November 2021.
We know the fans can’t wait to catch up with all the updates about the upcoming season of Chucky and here’s what we know so far about it.
Chucky Season 2 Release Date
As mentioned above, the renewal of the series was announced in November 2021. Given that the filming for the first season of the series was started in March 2021 after getting delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and wrapped up in August 2021, following its premiere in October, we can expect the series to premiere in the fourth quarter of 2022.
Chucky Season 2 Cast
Fans are wondering whether the casts from the first season will return to reprise their roles and sadly there is no announcement made regarding the casts of the upcoming season. However, we can expect the below names to appear in the second season of the show.
- Zackary Arthur will portray the character of Jake Wheeler
- Björgvin Arnarson to play the character of Devon Evans
- Alyvia Alyn Lind to play the character of Lexy Cross
- Teo Briones to play the character of Junior Wheeler
- Brad Dourif to give voice to the character Chucky/Charles Lee Ray
Apart from these, we can also see the other casts returning as well, the names include, Lexa Doig, Barbara Alyn Woods, Michael Therriault, Rachelle Casseus, Carina London Battrick, Devon Sawa, Fiona Dourif, Jennifer Tilly, Blaise Crocker, Christine Elise, and Alex Vincent.
There can be some additions or changes to the casts of the forthcoming season, we will have to wait until the official announcement.
Chucky Season 2 Plot
Well, though nothing has been shared yet about what we can expect from the second season of the series, we can take a dig into the end of season one as most probably the second season will pick up from where the first left.
At the end of the first season of “Chucky”, we saw that Andy managed to survive the explosion, hijacks the delivery truck, and destroys Chucky’s plan. However, Tiffany doll reveals herself and takes him, hostage, using a gun.
Later that day, Tiffany made the revelation that she chopped off limbs of Nica as she was frightened regarding what would Chuck do if he takes over Nica’s body yet again. Devon, Lexy, and Jake drop by Junior’s grave before a gloved hand shows up.
The ending left many questions that need to be answered and we believe season 2 will have all those answers.
Even though Andy (played by Alex Vincent) and Kyle (played by Christine Elise) believe they have broken down all of the Chucky dolls, it’s disclosed that Chucky (dubbed by Brad Dourif) has indeed been busy building a possessed army.
During an interview with Bloody Disgusting, showrunner Don Mancini stated, “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.” Hence, it’s quite safe to say that we can expect more from this killing army in Season 2.
Fans are excited to see if fan-favorite character Kyle, who is assumed as dead, is dead, or if, similar to several characters in the “Chucky” franchise, she will make an unanticipated reappearance. Nica Pierce (played by Fiona Dourif) is also left in a very dangerous situation since Tiffany (played by Jennifer Tilly) cut off all of her limbs “in case” Chucky ever recoups control of her.
During a virtual interview with SyFy, when questioned whether there was anything the actors wished to see for their characters in the second season, Alex Vincent stated that assuming maybe pointless as “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.”
Chucky Season 2 Trailer
There is no official trailer released yet but we expect to have the first glimpse in the early third quarter. Until then we will have to wait.
Fans out there are waiting for creators to share about season 2 but not much has been revealed yet and we hope that this wait is all worth it. We will make sure to update all the latest information on the subject, until then stay tuned.
