Chucky Has Been Renewed

By RodneyHatfieldJr for Movies

We are getting a 2nd season of Don Mancini‘s Child’s Play-based “Chucky” series from SYFY and USA has already been renewed for a second season! The series pulled in 9.5 million viewers, and will surely draw more when it streams on Peacock. And for you binge-watchers, you can start streaming it today.

For the people who have been living under a rock, the storyline is as follows:

“After a vintage Chucky doll turns up at a suburban yard sale, an idyllic American town is thrown into chaos as a series of horrifying murders begin to expose the town’s hypocrisies and secrets. Meanwhile, the arrival of enemies — and allies — from Chucky’s past threatens to expose the truth behind the killings, as well as the demon doll’s untold origins as a seemingly ordinary child who somehow became this notorious monster.”

Brad Dourif is back as Chucky and Jennifer Tilly is back as Tiffany in “Chucky,” which continues the storylines from the original movies and their recent sequels, Curse and Cult of Chucky. Other returning stars include Fiona Dourif as Nica Pierce, Alex Vincent as Andy Barclay, and Christine Elise as Kyle. Devon Sawa also stars.

I was very apprehensive when they announced this series. Being old enough, I can remember Friday the 13, and the A Nightmare of Elm Street series. Both were not bad per se but had little to do with the franchises. Initially, I thought this was going to be another cash grab by using the name.  But surprisingly, it isn't bad. Not as good as the original, but lightyears better than the last few sequels. A solid addition to the Child's Play canon.
