Don Mancini’s Chucky TV series has been renewed for a second season! Described as a “fresh take on the franchise,” Chucky explores what happens after a vintage Good Guy doll turns up at a yard sale in an idyllic American town, kickstarting a series of horrifying murders that expose the town’s hypocrisies and secrets and reveal the demon doll’s untold origins as a seemingly ordinary child who somehow became this notorious monster.
“We’re thrilled to start pulling the strings on a second season of puppet mayhem with Chucky,” Mancini said of the show’s renewal. “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!’”
Chucky, which airs on USA and SYFY in the US, reached 9.5 million viewers with its first season. Brad Dourif once again voices the killer doll, with Jennifer Tilly returning as Tiffany. Other returning cast members in the first season included Fiona Dourif as Nica Pierce, Alex Vincent as Andy Barclay, and Christine Elise as Kyle. Zackary Arthur, Bjorgvin Arnarson, Alyvia Alyn Lind, Teo Briones, and Devon Sawa also starred.
Chucky is currently airing in the UK on Sky Max. Fans in the US can now stream the complete first season on Peacock.
