Don Mancini, the creator of the original Child’s Play franchise, has just released a new teaser poster for Chucky, the USA Network and Syfy spin-off series, which will premiere in the fall. Last October, the first season of Chucky launched to tremendous ratings and critical acclaim. Mancini is the show’s creator, and it features Brad Dourif, Jennifer Tilly, Fiona Dourif, Alex Vincent, and Christine Elise, as well as various more known faces (and voices) from the series. Nick Antosca, the founder of Channel Zero, is an executive producer on this show. In November of last year, Chucky was renewed for a second season.
Mancini’s graphic, which he shared on his official Twitter account, is straightforward and to the point. The word Chucky 2 is emblazoned over the image in bright red letters that look like billboards. A slight picture of the titular killer doll appears underneath the title, which is possible to miss if the spectator is not paying careful enough attention. The remainder of the poster is dark, with just the year 2022 written under the title.
The first season of Chucky follows 13-year-old Jake Wheeler (Zackary Arthur), who bought the lethal Good Guy doll from a neighbourhood yard sale. People from Chucky’s past come back to torment him as well as serve him as he wreaks havoc around town while acting as an unusual confidant to Jake. The first season has one of cable television’s highest-rated debuts in 2021, with a Rotten Tomatoes certified fresh score of 91 percent. The programme is also up for a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding New TV Series this year. On April 12, the complete first season of Chucky will be released on Blu-ray, with some deleted scenes included as a bonus feature.
Although nothing is known about the second season of Chucky, numerous sources have speculated that Chucky and Tiffany’s kid, Glen/Glenda, who first appeared in 2004’s Seed of Chucky, may return this time around. There’s no news on when or if Chucky’s second season will start filming, but fans of the programme may expect to see it this year. Although no official release date has been announced, Chucky is expected to return to television in October.
