Chucky Season 2 is an upcoming horror TV series inspired by the “Child’s Play” horror flick franchise which was released simultaneously on October 12, 2021, on Syfy and the USA Network.
The series is a continuation of the film “Cult of Chucky” which was released in 2017. The story revolves around a teenager named Jake Wheeler played by Zackary Arthur who purchases a Good Guy toy for a craft project only to find out that the toy is possessed by the spirit of Charles Lee aka Chucky, a serial killer. The toy soon inflicts various massacres in Hackensack town, New Jersey, also Jake’s residential area. This led to Jake becoming a prime suspect by the cops.
The horror series was conceived by Don Mancini. He also formerly helmed three of the “Chucky” movies and penned multiple of the movies in the “Child’s Play” franchise. Don Mancini served as an executive producer and a showrunner.
When the first season of Chucky was released on October 12, 2021, it mainly gained positive reviews and critics alike. The series currently has a rating of 90 per cent on Rotten Tomatoes out of 88 percent audience. In response to the praises bestowed by many people, John Doyle of Globe and Mail stated, “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.”
Seemingly, much to the excitement and thrill of the horror series fans, the series has been renewed for a second outing as per reports by TVLine. Here’s what we know about Chucky season 2.
Chucky Season 2 Release Date: When will Chucky Season 2 be premiered?
The renewal announcement for the second instalment came not too long ago and as of now, there are not many updates about the second season. Nonetheless, we do know that new episodes will arrive next year as affirmed by the show’s executive producer and showmaker Don Mancini’s declaration.
Mancini’s declaration reads, “We’re thrilled to start pulling the strings on the second season of puppet mayhem with ‘Chucky.’ Many thanks to our partners at USA, Syfy and UCP for their incredible support and guidance 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!'”
The Cast of Chucky Season 2: Who’s returning?
The official cast lineup for the upcoming season is not confirmed yet but we expect to see all the major characters and the supporting roles return in the second season of Chucky that includes—
- Zackary Arthur (as Jake Wheeler)
- Björgvin Arnarson (as Devon Evans)
- Alyvia Alyn Lind (as Lexy Cross)
- Teo Briones (as Junior Wheeler)
- Brad Dourif (as the voice behind Chucky/Charles Lee Ray)
It’s not known if there’ll be new characters in the new season and there aren’t many details about it either since the second outing was renewed just recently but hopefully, we get an update soon from the showrunners.
The Plot of Chucky Season 2: What will it be about?
As of now, plot details are limited and it’s also not known if the second will continue from where the first season left off or totally start afresh. However, there are multiple storylines left hanging at the conclusion of the first season. It is indicated that the evil doll may enter numerous parts of the nation. Therefore, fans can expect the uproar and slaughter to magnify.
Besides, an unknown figure gazes at the trio- Jake, Lexy, and Devon as they pay a visit to Junior’s grave in the last minutes of the first season. In addition to that, it’d be fascinating to watch Glen/Glenda making a comeback in the upcoming season’s storyline. But once the cast members or the show makers provide an update then only we’ll be sure of what’s coming next. Till then sit back and relax and keep the entertainment going as you patiently wait for the new episodes to arrive in 2022.
