Everyone’s favorite serial killer doll, Chucky, is coming back for a second season of more blood and mayhem!
The show has been picked up by USA Network and Syfy, which have both been airing the series. The eight-part drama is set for its first season finale tomorrow night, November 30.
NBCUniversal said that across all platforms, the series has reached 9.5M viewers in its first season. The show is also set to start streaming on the company’s digital platform Peacock from December 1.
“We’re thrilled to start pulling the strings on a second season of puppet mayhem with Chucky,” executive producer Don Mancini said in a statement. “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!’”
In the small-screen iteration of the long-running Child’s Playfranchise, the Good Guy doll-turned-psychopath sets his sights on new victim Jake (Transparent‘s Zackary Arthur), who became acquainted with Chucky after finding him at a neighborhood tag sale. Of course, it didn’t take long for the bodies to start piling up, as Jake and his friends worked together to stop the murderous madness.
