Another season of Don Mancini‘s “Chucky” series is on the way later this year, and Deadline confirms this afternoon that Jennifer Tilly, as expected, will be back for Season 2!
Tilly will be reprising the role of Tiffany Valentine in “Chucky” Season 2. Deadline also notes that “Chucky” will again air on USA & SYFY, the show targeting a Fall 2022 return.
Also back for Season 2? The Tiffany doll, as teased in the Season 1 finale!
“We’re thrilled to start pulling the strings on a second season of puppet mayhem with Chucky,” franchise creator Mancini, who executive produces the series, recently said. “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!’”
For the first season, Brad Dourif returned as Chucky and Tilly as Tiffany, which continued the storylines from the *original* movies and their recent sequels, Curse and Cult of Chucky. Other returning stars included Fiona Dourif as Nica Pierce, Alex Vincent as Andy Barclay, and Christine Elise as Kyle. Devon Sawa (Final Destination, Hunter Hunter) also starred.
“Chucky” has been described as a “fresh take on the franchise” that “explores Chucky’s character with a depth that is uniquely afforded by the television series format.”
In the series, “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.”
“Chucky” is produced by UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group, and executive produced by creator Don Mancini, David Kirschner, Nick Antosca, Alex Hedlund and Harley Peyton.
