Syfy and USA Network confirmed that Season 3 of Chucky will be released this fall. Mancini — who has been a part of the Child’s Play franchise since its very inception more than 30 years ago — created the small-screen adaptation and occupies the dual role of showrunner and executive producer. Season 1 takes place in Hackensack, New Jersey: the birthplace and original killing grounds of the notorious serial killer known as Charles Lee Ray (voiced, as always, by the legendary Brad Dourif).
The season 3 announcement doesn’t come at all as a surprise, knowing the fans have really enjoyed the first two seasons.
“The cast and crew of ‘Chucky’ would like to thank fans and critics alike for their overwhelming response to season two, which we’re delighted to announce has now spurred the official to greenlight on season three. This news has made Chucky very happy. Thank Damballa for that because otherwise, Chucky would have been frankly impossible to deal with. Many thanks also to our partners at SYFY, USA, and UCP for helping us keep Chucky busy. See you in 2023 for what Chucky himself promises will be his scariest season ever,” said executive producer Don Mancini.
The killer doll’s latest victims are a trio of high schoolers — Jake Wheeler (Zackary Arthur), Devon Evans (Björgvin Arnarson), and Lexy Cross (Alyvia Alyn Lind) — whom Chucky would very much like to slaughter in cold blood. So far, however, they’ve been nothing but a major thorn in his plastic side. Season 2 moved the bulk of the action to the Catholic School of the Incarnate Lord, a religious boarding school for wayward youths, where our protagonists are sent after they’re caught up in the fallout of Chucky’s homicidal shenanigans.
A number of actors from the feature films — particularly Alex Vincent (Andy Barclay), Christine Elise (Kyle), Jennifer Tilly (Tiffany Valentine), Fiona Dourif (Nica Pierce), and Billy Boyd (voice of Glen/Glenda) — make appearances on the show. Nick Antosca, Alex Hedlund, David Kirschner (another longtime veteran of the property), and Jeff Renfroe also serve as executive producers.
Chucky, season 3 renewal announcement was expected, especially knowing that the movie M3gan, which is an AI-activated killer doll movie and is currently available in theaters bringing new competition to the horror genre and to the killer doll Chucky.
Who else besides me would love to see a Chucky vs M3gan movie? Make sure you check them both out and see which Killer Doll you are more afraid of.
