In 2021, Chucky, the killer doll from the Child’s Play horror movies, came back in his own TV show to scare a new generation. Chucky (what a creative name) was a massive hit with both critics (it got an impressive 91% on Rotten Tomatoes) and fans, who liked how the series worked hard to keep things the same from one episode to the next. When will Chucky season 2 come out?
In the first season, which took place after the events of Cult of Chucky, Jake Wheeler, a young man who was struggling with his sexuality, bought the possessed “Good Guy” doll at a yard sale. As Jake gives in to the evil influence of the beauty, he becomes a suspect in several strange murders, which brings together many of Chucky’s previous victims.
The show was praised for dealing with sexuality and identity issues while keeping its threatening tone. It was called a “coming of rage” story. With those kinds of reviews, it was clear that the killer doll would be back, and in November 2021, a second season was announced. So, when will season 2 of Chucky come out? So, read on…
Chucky Season 2 Release Date Speculation
Don Mancini, the showrunner and executive producer of Chucky, thanked fans for making Chucky “bigger than ever” when the show was picked up for a second season. He also said that the toy terror wasn’t done yet. According to collider, The second season of Chucky will start on October 05, 2022.
“We’re excited to start putting Chucky’s puppets in trouble for a second season,” Mancini said. “Many thanks to our partners at USA, Syfy, and UCP for their amazing help and advice in bringing Chucky to TV bigger than ever. And Chucky says to his fans, “This isn’t over by a long shot. You’d better be careful in 2022!'”
Chucky Season 2 Plot Speculation
Jake stabbed Chucky to death at the end of the first season, but the scary stuff isn’t over yet, and there are still a lot of loose ends to tie up.
At the end of the show, it was revealed that Chucky’s ex-wife Tiffany, who had betrayed him at the end of season 1, was keeping Nica, who had been hurt by Chucky, alive.
The second season will probably focus on their relationship as Nica tries to stop Chucky from taking her body back. There’s also the problem of Chucky’s murderous son Junior, who might have come back to life in the season finale.
We also know that Chucky has been making an army of dolls that are possessed. Mancini told Bloody Disgusting that this storyline would be explored in season 2. “Once a franchise is in its fourth decade, it’s trying to break into new, uncharted territory,” he said. “I’ve always liked having more than one Chucky doll.”
Chucky Season 2 Cast Speculation
In the second season of Chucky, all of the actors from the first season are likely to be back. This includes Zackary Arthur, Bjorgvin Arnarson, Alyvia Alyn Lind, Alex Vincent, Teo Briones, and Brad Dourif as the killer doll.

Season 1 Finale Recap – Chucky Stabs Lexy’s Dad
An Affair to Dismember, the last episode of Season 1, was written by Don Mancini and Harley Peyton and directed by Jeff Renfroe. The doll Jake gave to the Cross family came to life in the episode that aired on November 30. But Kyle shot him dead after he told them about Chucky’s voodoo skills and gave them drugs to keep them safe.
When Tiffany got home, Chucky, dressed as Nica, tried to kill her, but Chucky and Junior came to help. Tiffany showed Chucky his cult, which was made up of 72 dolls. Chucky planned to give the dolls to needy children all over the country, so Tiffany showed Chucky the dolls.

When Tiffany said Chucky was self-centered, he told Junior to kill Nica, but before he could, Tiffany cut the doll’s head off because she was tired of how Chucky mistreated her and didn’t care about her. She also put a bomb in the basement, which killed Kyle and Andy when it went off.
Chucky hid under the theatre seats during the Frankenstein movie and started stabbing and killing people, including Lexy’s dad. Lexy talked Junior into doing the right thing, so he stabbed Chucky before getting stabbed himself. Chucky died because Jake crushed his head. He then said sorry and died in Lexy’s arms.
The next day, Tiffany told everyone that she had cut off Nica’s arms and legs because she was afraid of what Chucky would do if he took over Nica’s body again. Andy, who lived through the explosion, took over the delivery truck and stopped Chucky’s plan, but the Tiffany doll showed herself and put a gun to his head. Before a gloved hand appeared, Lexy, Devon, and Jake went to Junior’s grave.
