“Did you bitches miss me?!”
We sure did, Chucky, and it looks like the killer doll has plenty more havoc to reign down in the official season 3 trailer. Furthermore, he’s brought plenty of familiar faces with him.
Answering one of the questions that’s continued to linger over Chucky season 3, we know thanks to the trailer that our beloved franchise leads are returning. The clip wastes no time in having Chucky taunt Jake, Devon, and Lexy over the phone, teasing that he’s about to come to the ultimate power. Later we see the teens, along with their former biology teacher, learn that Chucky has infiltrated The White House.
Another welcome return is that of Jennifer Tilly as Tiffany Valentine, in a sequence that confirms something we reported back in June. We witness the homicidal glamour puss face-off with Lexy in a prison visiting area, as the teen pleads to know the whereabouts of her younger sister Caroline.
To that end, two more series staples return in the form of Caroline Cross and Andy Barclay. In an intriguing snippet, we see Andy bound with the homicidal doll atop him, he begs the young child to set him free as she watches impassively… Just what is going on there?
Amidst slashes of White House carnage and prison hijinks, we get the briefest glimpse of Fiona Dourif as Nica Pierce, confirming she too will return and deliver on Season 2’s Christmas cliffhanger.
It all sounds so good… However, the trailer was presented with one unsurprising, but still slightly disappointing announcement. Due to the Hollywood strike action shutting down production, only four episodes were filmed. To facilitate the completion of the season, SyFy and USA have opted to split it into two parts.
This means the completed 4 episodes will air from October 4th – 25th and the remaining 4 will premiere in 2024, once completed. Although disheartening that we will only get half a season this year, some Chucky is certainly better than no Chucky at all.
What they’ve captured so far looks beyond thrilling, and they no doubt have a killer cliffhanger to end this first half on. The first half of Chucky season 3 will premiere October 4th 2023, and you can check out the trailer below:
