It seems like the Chucky Cinematic Universe is about to receive a lot of exciting content. Because the talk of the town is that Chucky Season 2 is all set for its premiere. And it is rightly getting a second season because the reviews and viewership numbers of the first season were phenomenal. And all praise goes to the stellar cast and the hard work of Don Mancini.
The show sticks to its main plot but with a slight twist. One of the primary reasons the front was so well received was that the main character belonged to the LGBTQ community. The series follows a 14-year-old teenage Jake Wheeler who brings back a doll for an art project. But little does he know that the evil spirit of Chucky possessed the beauty. The murders in Jake’s town of Hackensack, New Jersey, begins when the doll enters the city. But it seems like the city will not see peace anytime soon because Chucky is returning to haunt the town!
The first season had eight episodes, each lasting for around an hour, so we are assuming that Chucky Season 2 will also follow the same trend. The show was released recently in October 2021, but the ratings are still increasing. Of all the previous movies/shows, this one seems to be the most progressive. Because along with the gory theme, the show talks about other sensitive issues hence it received appreciation from both critics and viewers. And it is not a surprise that the fans are asking for more chronicles of Chucky. But is Chucky Season 2 confirmed? And if so, will the same cast feature in it or will Chucky find new victims?
Chucky Season 2 Release Date
Luckily Chucky Season 2 got greenlit shortly after the premiere of the first season. But with the renewal news we did not get a specific date for the release. However as the first season came out in the Halloween season it will be safe to assume that the sequel will also release somewhere in the later part of 2022. In words of Mancini:
“We’re thrilled to start pulling the strings on a second season of puppet mayhem with ‘Chucky.’ 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 Season 2 Cast
Although fans were expecting a completely different plot for the second season it seems like the writers will continue the story. Well in that case most of the cast is bound to come back assuming that nothing bad happened to any of them by the end of the first season. We don’t have the official cast line-up for Chucky Season 2 but these are the potential cast members:
- Zackary Arthur as Jake Wheeler
- Björgvin Arnarson as Devon Evans
- Alyvia Alyn Lind as Lexy Cross
- Fiona Dourif as Nica Pierce
- Jennifer Tilly as Tiffany Valentine
However, we are not sure if the following characters will return in the upcoming season: Teo Briones (Junior Wheeler), Christine Elise (Kyle), and Alex Vincent (Andy Barclay). Why? Well to find that out you’ll have to stream the 8 episodes on Syfy! And of course Brad Dourif will voice the notorious Chucky because without his voice the character will lose its shine. As the story will develop you can also expect to see new faces. Which will most likely be revealed as we get closer to the premiere of Chucky Season 2.
Chucky Season 2 Plot
As for now, we are clueless about the plot of Chucky Season 2. The writers haven’t confirmed whether the sequel will follow a new storyline or if it will pick the story from where it ended. But if you look at the events of the eighth episode there are a lot of loopholes which need to be explored further.
A mysterious figure looked at Jake, Devon, and Lexy from a distance while they visited Junior’s grave. But his identity was not revealed so he might make an important figure in the upcoming batch of episodes. The first season was very adventurous for Chucky and it seems like Chucky will terrorize more areas all over the country. With new victims, will come new tragedies!
Chucky Season 2 Trailer
The first season ended very recently so it seems like we’ll have to wait for some time to get to see any sort of footage from Chucky Season 2. But one thing is for sure that this prolonged wait will be worth it!
