USA and SyFy’s excellent Chucky series returns this October, and we can confirm that the Season 2 kicks off with an episode set on Halloween.
Season 1 of the show began in the days just before and continued through Halloween and beyond, and recently released official photos from Season 2 have revealed a number of episode titles, including episode 201, the Season Premiere, which is titled “Halloween II”.
The premiere date announcement teaser confirms that Chucky Season 2 will begin on October 5, and it features a lot of Halloween atmosphere packed into its brief 15-second runtime.
One of the best episodes of Season 1 took place on Halloween Night, as Chucky took to the streets and actually went trick or treating (wearing a Hello, Kitty mask). The Season 2 announcement teaser seems to suggest that the new season will pick up one year later and will take place, at least partly, during Halloween again.
The show is the ultimate Child’s Play/Chucky experience, with franchise creator Don Mancini at the helm and all of the most beloved actors from the previous films reprising their roles. Brad Dourif is back as the voice of Chucky, along with Jennifer Tilly back as Tiffany from Bride of Chucky and Seed of Chucky, as well as Alex Vincent as Andy Barclay from Child’s Play and Child’s Play 2, Christine Elise as Kyle from Child’s Play 2, and Fiona Dourif as Nica Pierce from Course of Chucky and Cult of Chucky.
Devon Sawa (Idle Hands, Final Destination) also returns from Season 1 but playing a new character this time, along with series stars Zackary Arthur, Bjorgvin Arnarson, and Alyvia Alyn Lind. Gina Gershon (Bound) also joins the cast in Season 2, as does Lara Jean Chorostecki (Hannibal) and Lachlan Watson (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), who will play Chucky and Tiffany’s offspring Glen/Glenda.
Chucky Season 2 premieres on USA and SyFy on October 5.
