Move over, M3GAN! Chucky here to killSyfy has renewed the serial killer doll series for a 3rd season.
“The cast and crew Chucky I want to thank fans and critics for their overwhelming response to Season 2, which we’re excited to announce has now officially greenlit Season 3,” creator and executive producer Don Mancini said in a statement. “This news made Chuck very happy. Kudos to Dambala for that, because dealing with Chuckie would have been frankly impossible otherwise. Many thanks also to our partners at Syfy, USA and UCP, for helping us keep Chucky busy. See you in 2023 for what Chuck promises will be his scariest season ever.”
In the small screen iteration of the long run Child’s play franchise, the Good Guy doll-turned-psychopath sets his sights on a new crop of children. In Season 2, Jake (Zachary Arthur), Devon (Björgwyn Arnarsson) and Lexi (Alivia Alyn Lind) fought Chucky from their new religious boarding school run by Father Bryce (Devon Sawa).
The series also stars franchise veterans Jennifer Tilly (reprising her role as Tiffany Valentine), Alex Vincent, Christine Elise, Fiona Dourif, and Brad Dourif as the voice of Chucky.
In other Syfy news, the cabler has also been renewed Reginald the Vampire For season 2. The series (which was adapted from Johnny B. Truant A fat vampire books) stars Jacob Batallo (Spider-Man. No Way Home:) as the titular Reginald, who battles murderous vampires while discovering his own unrecognized powers.
