Chucky Returns For a Third Season
After a successful run, USA and Syfy have renewed the murderous doll for a third season. That means Jake, Devon and Lexy will once again have to deal with homicidal Charles Lee Ray.
The series gives Don Mancini a chance to explore themes, like a gay teen’s puppy love, that he couldn’t address in Child’s Play’s seven-film canon.
Chucky Season 1
After the infamously evil doll is ensconced within the world’s highest office, Jake, Devon and Lexy must wage their war against him from inside the White House walls. Their strategy requires a high-profile friend and budding romance, while the trio grapple with the complexities of their own relationships. As always, the SYFY and USA series delivers suspense, horror, and legendary kills.
Child’s Play franchise stars Jennifer Tilly and Brad Dourif reprise their roles in the series, which follows a vintage Chucky who turns up at a suburban yard sale and starts murdering townies. As the body count rises, enemies and allies from the demon doll’s past resurface, threatening to expose his sinister reign of terror. Also returning are Zackary Arthur, Bjorgvin Arnarson, and Alyvia Alyn Lind as Jake Wheeler, Devon Evans, and Lexy Cross respectively. They, along with Nica Pierce (played by Fiona Dourif – the real-life daughter of Brad) and Junior (Christine Elise), form the core of the foster siblings’ fight against their arch-nemesis.
Chucky Season 2
After an intense first season, Chucky returned for a second round of dark humor and over-the-top murder. The series satirized religious nut jobs and Hollywood sleaze with a firm grasp on character work, plus a refreshingly progressive take on modern horror with LGBTQ+ inclusivity to boot.
The first episode of the second season finds Jake, Devon, and Lexy adopted by Miss Fairchild (Annie Briggs), a biology teacher who actually believes their stories about a killer doll. She brings them to her house, where they find a Tiffany doll that resembles the original Bride doll.
Meanwhile, Jake and Devon mend their relationship with their bully-turned-friend Lexy. But just as they start to trust one another again, serial killer Charles Lee Ray — voiced by Brad Dourif — starts to commit murders around Hackensack, New Jersey.
Chucky Season 3
After his diabolical scheme to infiltrate America’s children’s hospitals was thwarted in season one, the killer doll will seek revenge with new targets. In his next onslaught, Chucky will bring the bloodshed to a new locale — the nation’s capital. The Child’s Play franchise icon returns for a third season of the SYFY and USA hit series, with Jennifer Tilly and Brad Dourif reprising their roles.
The series stars Zackary Arthur as Jake Wheeler, Bjorgvin Arnarson as Devon Evans, and Alyvia Alyn Lind as Lexy Cross. Fiona Dourif and SNL alum Kenan Thompson also appear, with actor Devon Sawa taking on the role of President James Collins.
During a foul-mouthed press conference, Chucky revealed that the new season will premiere Oct. 4. He also confirmed that costar Devon Sawa is returning for the season, which is filmed in Hackensack, NJ. The episodes will air on both Syfy and USA, with Peacock subscribers able to watch the show the day after they air on cable.
Chucky Season 4
A little over a year after Season 2 of the Syfy and USA Network show premiered, Chucky is back and on the hunt. The possessed doll has his sights set on the White House after moving himself around the Oval Office in the last episode, giving the President a small fright. It was also revealed that Jake, Devon and Lexy have been sent to Catholic school, while Nica and Glenda are still in possession of their bodies.
Brad Dourif is set to return for the new season, and Zackary Arthur, Bjorgvin Arnarson and Alyvia Lind will reprise their roles as Jake Wheeler, Devon Evans and Lexy Cross. The new episodes will air on October 4, with a next-day stream on Peacock the following day. The macabre series is created and executive produced by Don Mancini, who penned the original Child’s Play movies. The show stars Alex Hedlund and Jennifer Tilly, who also co-starred in the movies.
