If you would have told me that in 2021 we would have a successful TV series based on Child’s Play, I definitely would have said that’s a great thought, but never gonna happen. And yet here we are and I couldn’t be more excited that the original creators and cast brought forth a truly fresh look, feel, and a fantastic story to the franchise many of us hold dear to our Damballa hearts. To boot, the series has been renewed for a second season to premiere in 2022!
Across all platforms, “Chucky” has reached 9.5 million viewers in its first season, and is a monumental reach for the “Good Guy” himself conquering the small screen as opposed to dominating box offices.
“We’re thrilled to start pulling the strings on a second season of puppet mayhem with ‘Chucky,’” said executive producer Don Mancini. “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!”
The season finale of “Chucky” airs Tuesday, Nov 30 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on USA and SYFY. Season 1 of “Chucky” is available to stream on Peacock starting Dec. 1, 2021.
