For season 2 of “Chucky,” our favourite tiny murderer is returning with more gore, body counts, and foul language. The “Child’s Play” franchise’s events are directly and canonically continued in the television series, with Chucky now tormenting the people of Hackensack, New Jersey, as both new and seasoned heroes attempt to stop him. After being discovered at a yard sale by bullied youngster Jake Wheeler, Chucky invaded the Wheeler household in the first season, leading to the failure of his grand plot to wreak havoc on children’s hospitals across the nation. Less than a year has passed since the conclusion of the first season, which left viewers wondering what would become of characters like Tiffany Valentine, Nica Pierce, and Chucky. Here is all the information you need to know prior to “Chucky” season 2 premiering this fall while we wait for our pal til’ the end to return.
Chucky season 2 release date and where you can watch it
The second season of “Chucky” will premiere on USA and Syfy simultaneously on October 5, 2022 at 9:00 p.m., much like the first season did. Weekly premieres of new episodes will occur, and after the season finale, the show will finally air on Peacock. If you’re a cord-cutter like me, you might have used the streaming service Sling last year. It provides a feature that allows you to see both stations’ live cable broadcasts. Keep an eye on Syfy’s YouTube channel as they frequently post behind-the-scenes interviews, exclusive teaser snippets, and plenty of other extra content to keep your Chucky cup overflowing in between episodes. This is another thing to keep in mind when watching “Chucky.”
What to expect from Chucky season 2
It has been revealed that the second season will also see the return of “Seed of Chucky” star and genderqueer icon Glen/Glenda. This will hopefully put all the questions the season 1 finale raised to rest. The doll, who is the offspring of Chucky and Tiffany, served as the focal point of one of season one’s most memorable scenes. Jake Wheeler, a young gay boy, considers having a genderfluid child after Chucky tells him he has no problem with him being queer. Chucky responds, “I’m not a monster, Jake,” to Jake’s amazement upon learning that he is accepting. The sociopath killing doll claims this to be true. It’s obvious that the introduction of Glen/Glenda in season 2 will encourage discussions on gender identity, similar to how season 1 explored the difficulties of growing up as a queer child.
Naturally, “Chucky” is also here to cause chaos. Devon Sawa, the star of season one, is returning despite having been murdered off (twice), and I secretly hope that this develops into a recurring joke in which Sawa returns every season as a new character only to be killed off by Chucky in peculiar ways. Place your bets on whether or not they can top Chucky’s Hello Kitty outfit from last season now that it appears that we’ll have a Halloween episode once more based on the teaser.
The stars of Chucky season 2
For “Chucky” season 2, along with Zackary Arthur as Jake Wheeler, Bj rgvin Arnarson as Devon Evans, Alyvia Alyn Lind as Lexy Cross, Fiona Dourif as Nica Pierce (and perhaps once more as Charles Lee Ray? ), Alex Vincent as Andy Barclay, Christine Elise as Kyle, and Barbara Alyn Woods as Mayor Michelle Cross, Brad Dourif, who has voiced Chucky since the very first “Child An exciting new addition to the cast is Meg Tilly from “Psycho 2,” “Body Snatchers,” Gina Gershon from “Bound,” “Killer Joe,” Joe Pantoliano from “Memento,” Tony Nappo from “Saw II,” and Sutton Stracke from “Bound” (“Real Housewives”). Many of the new characters are real-world acquaintances of Jennifer Tilly, adding to the “Chucky” legend in “real life.” As was already stated, Lara Jean Chorostecki from NBC’s “Hannibal” has joined in an unnamed capacity, non-binary actor Lachlan Watson has joined the cast, and Devon Sawa will return to portray a new character. Lachlan Watson will play the genderfluid Glen/Glenda.
