The USA Network/SYFY series “Chucky” has been renewed for a second season, coming in 2022.
The news was confirmed ahead of the series’s Season 1 finale set to air on November 30.
The plot revolves around a sculpture artist teenager (Zackary Arthur), who is bullied and sort of lost after the recent death of his mother. He finds and buys Chucky at a yard sale, leading to chaos at his idyllic American town as a series of horrifying murders begin to expose the town’s hypocrisies and secrets.
The series also stars Teo Briones, Alyvia Alyn Lind, Björgvin Arnarson, Devon Sawa, Lexa Doig, Barbara Alyn Woods, and others.
It also features Alex Vincent as Andy, the original child tormented by the doll in the first movie, and Christine Elise McCarthy as Andy’s foster-sister, Brad Dourif as Chucky, Fiona Dourif as Nica Pierce, and Jennifer Tilly as Tiffany Valentine, Chucky’s Bride.
The series is created by Don Mancini, the screenwriter of the original Child’s Play movie and many of its sequels.
It serves as a sequel to the seventh movie in the Child’s Play franchise “Cult of Chucky”, which was released in 2017.
The series debuted on USA Network and its sister network SYFY on October 12. It has been a hit for the networks, reportedly being watched by an impressive 9.5 million viewers across all platforms in its first season.
