The horror series Chucky by Don Mancini, creator of the Child’s Play franchise, is a sequel to the film Cult of Chucky. Set in the town of Hackensack, New Jersey, the series revolves around an old good guy doll and its young owner, Jake Wheeler. Little did he know when Jake bought the doll at a flea market that his life would be turned upside down when horrific murders took place all over Hackensack.
The slasher thriller series was originally released in October 2021. The series managed to delight critics and viewers with its solid narrative, excellent performance, and multilayered characterizations. As expected from the series, the series does not skimp on cruelty and biting humor. The series received particular praise for dealing with topics such as bullying, sexuality and domestic life. No wonder the fans are longing for a sequel. So let’s discuss whether to expect the second season!
Chucky season 2 release date
Since you are already looking forward to the second season of the series, we don’t want to keep you waiting any longer. USA Network and Syfy re-commissioned the series for the second season on November 29, 2021. That was not unexpected, because the first season was seen by around 9.5 million viewers and highly praised by the critics.
After the extension, series creator Mancini said: We are thrilled to be pulling the strings for a second season of the puppet chaos with ‘Chucky’. Many thanks to our partners at USA, SYFY and UCP for their incredible support and help in bringing ‘Chucky’ to the small screen bigger than ever. And to the fans, Chucky sends his unbroken thanks and a message: It’s not over yet, far from over. Take better care of yourself in 2022! ‘
This confirms that the next part will return in 2022, although an exact release date has not yet been announced. Since the first season appeared on time for Halloween, this could also be the case with the new edition. If that’s the case, we can expect Chucky Season 2 to release sometime in Q4 2022.
Chucky Season 2 Cast: Who Can Play?
In season two, we’ll likely see some familiar faces from season 1. They are Zackary Arthur (Jake Wheeler), Björgvin Arnarson (Devon Evans), Alyvia Alyn Lind (Lexy Cross), Fiona Dourif (Nica Pierce) and Jennifer Tilly (Tiffany Valentine). Given the fate of their respective characters, it remains to be seen whether Teo Briones (Junior Wheeler), Christine Elise (Kyle) and Alex Vincent (Andy Barclay) will return.
However, we can assume that Brad Dourif will be the voice of the infamous serial killer Chucky / Charles Lee Ray. The Oscar-nominated actor also speaks the character in several films in the franchise. On the other hand, don’t be surprised if you see some new faces in season 2.
Chucky Season 2 Plot: What Can It Be About?
In the season 1 finale, we learn that Junior kills his father and then teams up with Chucky. And since Junior kills his father, the numerous good guy dolls that Tiffany has collected come to life. At Charles Lee Ray’s house, Tiffany feels hurt when Chucky ignores her and kills the doll. She then sets off with Nica to do what she and Chucky had planned. Devon is also rescued and escapes the house, but it’s unclear whether Andy and Kyle will survive the explosion. On the other hand, Chucky and Junior’s alliance ends badly for the latter. Junior attacks Chucky to save Lexy, but that leads to his death.
It has not yet been confirmed whether season 2 will pick up where season 1 ends or whether a new storyline will begin. There are, however, several storylines that are not yet completed by the end of season one. It is implied that the Chucky dolls could reach different parts of the country so we can expect the chaos and slaughter to increase.
Also, a mysterious figure watches Jake, Devon, and Lexy as they visit Junior’s grave in the final moments of Season 1. Also, it would be interesting to see if Glen / Glenda will appear in the future plot. But we won’t have a clearer picture until the series creator or members of the cast and crew decide to give more updates.
