Chucky Season 2: Everything We Know So Far

If you were on the same wavelength as me, you may not have expected the television show version of "Chucky" would be met with the same fanfare as the original and beloved film series. But, again, if you were on the same wavelength as me, you would've been wrong. "Chucky" the TV show has become quite a popular series, with horror fans praising its modernizations and updates and new, non-horror fans jumping on the bandwagon thanks to the excellent cast. 

Now that "Chucky" has been renewed for season 2, it seems a lot more folks will be joining that ever-growing group of fans — so if you want all the details on what to expect going into the show's sophomore storyline, here's a rundown of everything we know so far. 

When and where to watch Chucky season 2

"Chucky" is a Syfy and USA Network production, so when the series is airing live, that's where you can find it for viewing purposes. If you're looking to get caught up on season 1 before the second season drops, look no further than your friendly neighborhood streaming app Peacock, which has the season available in full for streaming. Season 1 previously aired on Mondays at 10 pm ET, but as of now, there is no official release date for season 2, so it remains to be seen if it will grace our TV screens on the same day and time as the first time around. 

What Chucky season 2 will be about

So far, the plot details for "Chucky" season 2 have been totally kept under wraps. However, if you need a bit of a refresher on season 1, here's what went down. Young teen Jake Wheeler buys a Good Guy doll to use in an art project — and naturally, the doll just so happens to be possessed by the spirit of serial killer Charles Lee Ray. Jake then becomes a suspect in several crimes committed by the doll, and even finds himself compelled to actually commit violent crimes as a result of his high school experience, which is fraught with homophobic bullying and a troublesome crush on a classmate. 

Reminder: the series is supposed to serve as a sequel companion to "Cult of Chucky," which is the seventh film in the "Child's Play" franchise.

What we know about the Chucky season 2 cast and crew

"Chucky" is going to see the return of its season one cast members, including Devon Sawa (playing a new character, since both of his previous characters were killed off), Alyvia Alyn Lind, Brad Dourif, Fiona Dourif, Alex Vincent, Christine Elise, Zackary Arthur, Teo Briones, and Björgvin Arnarson. 

Every show worth its salt wants to add some fun guest stars when they come back for their sophomore season, so we can expect quite a few of those for "Chucky." Kyle Richards, star of "Halloween" and "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," will have a guest role on season 2 — and she isn't the only housewife who will now be known as a scream queen. Fellow "RHOBH" star Sutton Stracke is set to make a cameo appearance in season 2, according to her proud photos from set via her Instagram. Additionally, Gina Gershon and Joe Pantoliano will appear in season 2. 

Jennifer Tilly, who is known for playing Chucky's girlfriend Tiffany Valentine (as well as a fictionalized version of herself), will also return to the series — and she's bringing her sister Meg Tilly with her, so this season is sure to be a total blast. Additionally, non-binary actor Lachlan Watson (who previously starred in another horror series, "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina") has been cast as Glen/Glenda, the genderfluid offspring of Chucky and Tiffany who was attacked and seemingly killed in 2004's "Seed of Chucky." The "Chucky" TV show was created by "Child's Play" mastermind Don Mancini.
